Emirates A380 at 10

Emirates is celebrating 10 years of A380 operations. Since its first flight to New York from Dubai on August 1, 2008, the Emirates A380 has carried more than 105 million passengers worldwide, of which 9.8 million were from their U.S. gateways. To date, the airline has clocked in more than 930 million miles on 115,000 flights, equivalent to 39,000 trips around the globe. The first service to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport also marked the first-ever A380 commercial service in United States history and now, currently services five U.S. gateways, including Washington D.C., San Francisco, Houston, Los Angeles, and New York.

Emirates is the world’s largest operator of the A380 aircraft, with 104 double-decker aircraft flying to 49 cities on six continents and more than 80 daily departures from Dubai, the airline’s hub. In addition to its 104-strong fleet, the airline has a further 58 A380s on order. Today, Emirates also operates the world’s shortest A380 route from Dubai to Kuwait and the world’s longest A380 non-stop route from Dubai to Auckland. The airline has also grown its scheduled services to major airports and has successfully grown demand at regional airports such as Manchester, Brisbane, Kuala Lumpur, Houston, Prague, Kuwait, Mauritius, Johannesburg and Sao Paulo.

“It’s been 10 extraordinary years since the first Emirates A380 flight took to the skies, and today it has become one of the most recognizable and admired aircraft in the world,” said Sir Tim Clark, President, Emirates Airline. “Passengers love to fly it because of its spaciousness, which provides more comfort across all classes and its iconic products like the Onboard Lounge, Shower Spa and First Class suites have redefined air travel. We remain committed to providing the best experience for our customers aboard our flagship aircraft, and introducing new innovations that will continue to ‘wow’ them every time they fly with us.”

From First Class to Economy Class, the Emirates A380 has been an industry step-change for passengers to experience new standards of in-flight comfort. Emirates revolutionized the A380’s cabin space design when it introduced its bespoke version of the aircraft in 2008. The new design incorporated higher ceilings and mood-lighting, as well as signature, industry-first elements like its Onboard Lounge. In 2017, Emirates introduced the next generation of the Onboard Lounge featuring a sleeker design, new color palette, social seating arrangement and surround sound, among other touches. The popular Shower Spa has become a defining feature of the premium experience on the Emirates A380’s three-class configured aircraft.

Across all classes, over 120 million meals have been served on the A380 since 2008. First Class customers have consumed 2.7 million tins of caviar, and more than 3.5 million fresh flowers have been loaded on A380 flights. Emirates also has 1,500 Flight Deck Crew and over 20,000 Cabin Crew specially trained to operate its A380 fleet.

Emirates multi-award winning in-flight entrainment system, ICE, offers unparalleled choice and quality when it comes to entertainment, with more than 3,500 channels. The Emirates A380 Economy Class seats feature among the widest individual in-seat screens in the industry, measuring in at 13.3 inches. Emirates’ First Class experience on its A380 provides passengers with an unprecedented level of privacy and thoughtful touches of luxury. Emirates has 1,400 A380 First Class suites flying today.
