The 123rd Airbus A380 superjumbo plane was delivered to Emirates today. Emirates’ final new A380 aircraft, A6-EVS, has joined the airline’s fleet, marking another milestone in the airline’s persistent 21-year commitment to the A380 programme.

Emirates is once again signalling its hope for the industry’s recovery and the resumption of travel demand by taking delivery of a brand new aircraft in the middle of an unprecedented worldwide epidemic.
The A380 was still known as the A3XX when it was originally ordered by Emirates at the 2000 Farnborough Air Show. A definite commitment and further order for 15 more aircraft was made during the 2001 Dubai Air Show, a strong statement just six weeks after the events of September 11th tested the industry like never before.
In order to bring the world’s largest commercial aircraft with a complete double deck and substantial cabin interior space to market, top European aerospace firms and their worldwide supply chain relied on Emirates’ commitment.
Since its inaugural flight, the A380 has captivated the minds of passengers, generated excitement wherever it flies, and gained a reputation for its quiet, large, and pleasant interiors. In so many aspects, the A380 is a genuinely unique aeroplane,” he says. This allowed us to re-imagine the travel experience and better satisfy demand at limited airports, as well as to increase our network size.
