Emirates has received its 50th A380 aircraft strengthening its position with the largest fleet of A380s

This latest delivery takes Emirates’ all wide-body fleet to 224 aircraft, representing the world’s largest fleet of A380s, and also the world’s largest fleet of Boeing 777s. 

After the entry of its 50th A380 aircraft into service by early August, Emirates will offer on a weekly basis a total of 5.7 billion available seat kilometres (ASKMs) to 145 destinations which span the globe from Los Angeles to Auckland.  Since April 2010, Emirates has received 96 aircraft (all A380s and Boeing 777s), increasing its overall capacity by 64% in ATKMs and 71% in ASKMs, while consistently maintaining seat load factors of close to 80%.  During this period, Emirates also added 48 cities to its global destination network.
