Emirates Takes Delivery of Second Airbus A380 Aircraft
Emirates Airline has taken delivery of its second Airbus A380 superjumbo aircraft, which brings its all wide-bodied aircraft fleet to 122, inclusive of freighters.
Emirates's second A380 will join the airline's first A380 delivered in July 2008 on the Dubai-New York nonstop service. This increases Emirates's A380 service on the route to once-a-day from Sunday. Emirates operates two flights a day to New York JFK, the second daily service using a Boeing 777-300ER.
