Celebrates milestone delivery in Hamburg, reaffirms commitment to A380 programme

Emirates chairman highlights positive impact of Emirates’ A380 operations on aerospace manufacturing, aviation industries and consumer experience

Emirates today celebrates the milestone delivery of its 100th Airbus A380 aircraft at a special ceremony with Airbus at the manufacturer’s delivery centre in Hamburg.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Emirates’ Chairman and Chief Executive officiated the ceremony. He was joined at the event by Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline; Tom Enders, Airbus Chief Executive Officer; Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Director - Customer and Services; His Excellency Ali Al Ahmed, UAE Ambassador to Germany and Frank Horch, Senator for Economy, Transport and Innovation of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.

Sheikh Ahmed said: “This is a tremendous moment for Emirates, for Airbus and for our many partners involved in the A380 programme. There is no doubt that the A380 has had a big positive impact on aerospace manufacturing and the broader aviation industry, supporting hundreds of thousands of jobs and stimulating innovation and new product development in many related areas such as ground handling, catering, airport facilities and cabin products, to name a few.

“Importantly, the A380 also brought the flying experience for our customers to the next level. The aircraft itself is a showpiece of engineering. It is the world’s largest commercial passenger jet but it is quiet and efficient and at Emirates we’ve utilised the onboard real estate to redefine the thinking around inflight products and experience. Our flight crew love to fly it and our customers love to fly in it.

“For Emirates, the A380 has been a success. We’ve been able to utilise it at slot-constrained airports, as well as at regional and ‘secondary’ airports where we have grown passenger demand. Each time we deploy an A380 onto a route, it typically stimulates further traffic and demand as travellers are attracted by our flagship A380 experience. We remain committed to the programme and will work closely with Airbus and our partners to continually enhance our A380 product as we look ahead to receiving our remaining 42 aircraft on order.”

“We are extremely proud of our long-standing relationship with Emirates – a partnership that has been integral to the A380 programme,” said Tom Enders. “It is a source of immense satisfaction for everyone at Airbus that such a visionary airline has believed in the A380 from the beginning and chosen it as its flagship and the backbone of its operations. And, of course, it is always exciting to hear positive feedback from our customers and passengers about the aircraft, while associating it with Dubai’s success as the world’s most dynamic air transport hub.”

Dominic Horwood said: “We would like to congratulate Emirates on this momentous occasion. We are very proud to be powering their 100th Airbus A380 and look forward to building on our strong relationship in years to come.”

Powered by Rolls-Royce engines, Emirates’ 100th A380 is configured in three cabin classes, with 14 private suites in First class, 76 seats in Business and 426 seats in Economy.  It also features the airline’s newly revamped Onboard Lounge. It will be on display at the upcoming Dubai Air Show and will enter service afterwards.

Year of Zayed tribute

Adding to the celebrations, Emirates unveiled a special tribute to the late HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founding father of the United Arab Emirates, with bespoke livery for its 100th A380.

Sheikh Ahmed said: “2018 is the “Year of Zayed”, marking 100 years since the birth of our country’s founding father and celebrating his legacy. Emirates is proud to launch our tribute to the man who has been instrumental to the UAE’s formation and development, at the milestone delivery of our 100th A380.”

"Just as the A380 has broken new ground in so many regards, Sheikh Zayed was a true pioneer and visionary. Bringing his message of inspiration, daring and determination to the world as we fly the A380 around the globe, is an apt way to celebrate his amazing legacy."

Positive impact aerospace and aviation

The Emirates A380 programme creates and supports manufacturing jobs across the global aircraft manufacturing supply chain. Airbus estimates that Emirates’ A380 orders alone support 41,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs in Europe, including some 14,500 in Germany alone. These are high-skilled jobs and impact a high-value supply chain, creating a significant multiplier effect in the countries where Airbus has aircraft production facilities. The estimated Europe-wide impact of Emirates’ A380 investment amounts to €3.4 billion in GDP in 2013/14. In Germany and France the GDP impact is €1.2 billion for each country.* 

In April 2015, Emirates signed an historic €8.7 billion deal with Rolls-Royce for Trent 900 engines and a long-term total care package. The engines will power 50 Airbus A380s which began entering service in 2016. The deal, which is the largest ever for Rolls-Royce and one of the largest ever export orders for a UK-based company, was part of Emirates’ ongoing investment in the UK and Europe. 

Setting new standards for flying experience

The introduction of Emirates’ first A380 in 2008 set new standards for customer experience, introducing many industry firsts including the Onboard Lounge, Shower Spas, free wi-fi and advanced inflight entertainment systems in all classes, as well as many other features.

Emirates continually invests to enhance its A380 product, ensuring its customers enjoy the best possible experience. To date over 85 million passengers have flown on the Emirates A380.

The airline has implemented countless improvements on board its A380 fleet since 2008, ranging from subtle updates such as the addition of in-seat USB ports and introduction of electric window blinds, to more major upgrades such as relocating overhead luggage bins to provide a more spacious cabin, installing bigger and better inflight entertainment systems and a newly revamped Onboard Lounge.

Emirates’ A380 operations

Emirates is the world’s largest operator of the A380 aircraft, flying this iconic double-decked jet to 48 cities on six continents on scheduled services. Including one-off flights, special commemorative services, test flights and other operational deployments, over 70 airports to date have welcomed the Emirates A380.

The airline receives on average 11 A380 deliveries per year, starting from its first aircraft in August 2008. In its 2016/17 financial year, Emirates received a record 19 new A380 aircraft.

In Dubai, Emirates operates the world’s largest A380 hub with an entire purpose-built concourse dedicated to A380 operations. The US$ 3.3 billion facility was an investment to offer travellers unprecedented convenience and comfort with direct boarding to the A380 aircraft from the First and Business class lounges and amenities including duty free shops, spas, an array of dining options and more.

Emirates has 1,500 flight deck crew and over 23,000 cabin crew specially trained to operate its A380 fleet.

Emirates likely to order new A380s at Dubai Air Show

 

By Bjorn Fehrm

November 03, 2017, © Leeham Co, Hamburg.: Emirates Airline (Emirates) Chairman and Chief Executive Sheikh Al-Maktoum said at today’s delivery ceremony of the airlines 100th A380, “We hope we will be able to order new A380s next week at Dubai Air Show. The details are being worked out.”

His statement came at a press conference with Airbus CEO, Tom Enders, in Hamburg today, at the delivery of the new A380. The delivered aircraft carries a special tribute to the founder of the Arab Emirates, Sheik Zayed (Figure 1).

New order show Emirates’ trust in A380

“The A380 has been a success for Emirates,” Sheik Al-Maktoum said. “We use the aircraft for our longest route to New Zealand and at the same time we fly it to neighboring Kuwait, a flight of less than an hour. The aircraft has been good for both our bottom line and brand.”

When the question on additional A380 orders next week in Dubai came up, Al-Maktoum answered, “Ï hope we will be able to, we are working on it.” Such orders would then be the highlight of the Dubai Air Show, “as we like to place our orders there,” continued the Sheikh.

Airbus’ Enders said he expects “the A380 to be in production for at least another decade” and Airbus is planning several improvements of the aircraft down the line. On a direct question, if this involves new engines, he answered, “probably. At some point, this will make sense”.

Market intelligence says the Emirates order is for an additional 20-50 A380. The exact number and specification are not clear but it should be Rolls-Royce engined aircraft, which incorporate certain aspects of the A380plus package we described here.

The very visual new winglets are not likely, as these involve extensive flight testing and re-qualification of the whole aircraft. Other parts of the package, like improved cabin items and systems solutions, could be introduced with less effort.

Big delivery ceremony

The press event finished with the official delivery ceremony for the new aircraft. At the ceremony, hundreds of Airbus A380 co-workers and partners were present.

The delivery took place after speeches from Al-Maktoum and Enders. Here the highlights from the speeches:

  • Emirates was the first airline to place an order for the A380, in 2000. (Singapore Airlines was first delivery, October 2007, LNC).
  • At the first Emirates delivery, July 2008 from Hamburg Finkenwerder, over 2,000 Airbus co-workers were present at the handover.
  • After the 100th aircraft, there are another 42 to deliver (without the rumored additional order, LNC)
  • The A380 has made a big impact on customer experience and what he expects from an airline trip.
  • Its business lounge is the world’s most popular meeting point at 40,000ft, its first class SPA is unique and the spacious economy seats are a reference for the traveling public.

Eles realmente encontraram um jeito único de fazer a operação dessa aeronave ser um sucesso em grandes proporções e não uma aeronave de nicho, como as outras cias utilizam.......e querem mais, mesmo sem a Airbus oferecer o A380neo

8 hangares, entre outras coisas, o maior centro de manutenção de aviões do mundo, ou pelo menos era quando foi inaugurado.

É realmente impressionante a magnitude da frota de A380 da EK, mas a empresa vem sofrendo claramente com um problema se excesso de oferta em algumas rotas por só possuir B777 ou A380, tanto que vem fazendo ajustes de frequências em várias rotas, acordo de code-share com a Flydubai em outras e avalia seriamente comprar um avião menor, do porte do A350 ou B787.

...E mais impressionante possuir uma frota de pouco mais de 250 aviões, todos WB, podendo ter o luxo de avaliar a compra de um avião "menor" e na casa dos WB.

Nenhum na América e nenhum na África, correto?

Somente Europa, Ásia (incluindo aí OM) e Oceania.

Na Africa existe varios destinos servidos pelo A380 de companhias diferentes.....EK, AF e BA

 

JNB, MRU, CMN, ABJ...

 

Na América Latina creio que somente GRU e MEX (Emirates e Air France)

 

América do Norte, varias empresas como QF, KE, EK, LH, EY, QR, AF, BA, Asiana, China Southern....

 

SFO, LAX, ATL, MIA, DFW, IAD, JFK, YYZ, IAH, YVR...

Acho que o colega Jambock, assim como eu, referiu-se à aérea. Não a destinos.

Não consegui lembrar de nenhuma africana ou americana que possua frota de 380.

Abraço.

Para as cias americanas é melhor ter 2 voo de 77W como na AA do que somente um com o A388. Na rota MIA-GRU-MIA da AA acho que caberia um A388, mas pra AA é melhor os 2 voos.

GRU-MIA da AA é justamente um otimo exemplo de um voo e uma cia onde um A380 poderia ser muito bem aproveitado!

O A380 nao vingou nas cias americanas primeiro por politica, segundo (bem atrás) por elas terem um mercado bem dividido por todo o país em vários Hubs.

Assim como a PanAm se eternizou pelos Clippers B747 a EK vai firmando sua imagem como "A operadora de A380"

Se no passado falar em PanAm era falar de B747 hoje falar em EK é falar em A380.
