Ahead of the increased demand throughout the summer, Dubai-based Emirates airline has purchased five new Airbus A380 jumbo jets. Additionally, the airline will start up additional routes using its forthcoming A350 fleet.
The airline made the choice to buy brand-new A380s in an effort to go back to pre-pandemic levels. Adnan Kazim, the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of Emirates, predicted that this year’s passenger volume will surpass previous year’s.
He added that the huge wide-body aircraft is presently employed for 43 destinations, with the airline flying approximately 440 flights per day across its global network, or about 3,080 departure flights each week.
According to Kazim, Emirates plans to increase its network in China and other significant locations, as well as add flights to Christchurch, Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, and London.
According to Kazim, flights will also begin to San Francisco on July 15, Singapore on June 1, and Houston on June 15. In an effort to minimise carbon emissions, Emirates has completed a flight using only sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly practises.
