Five New Aircraft Join Emirates Fleet in December

The current Emirates fleet is expanding by five aircraft this month as the carrier adds three new A380s and two new Boeing 777s. The new additions mark the arrival of Emirates’ 118th and 119th Boeing aircraft and its 28th to 30th A380s. Two new destinations in December are Lyon in France and Phuket, Thailand. In addition, services to Warsaw, Poland, and Algiers, Algeria, begin in the first quarter of 2013.

“Adding a single new aircraft into the fleet, for any airline, requires careful planning and good logistical support,” said Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ Executive Vice-President of Engineering and Operations. “However, adding five new aircraft over the course of one month is a true achievement. Notwithstanding the precise planning that takes place in inducting these aircraft into the network, none of this would be possible without our professional team of flight crew, cabin crew, engineering, airport and ground operations personnel.”
