Emirates Airline

Emirates Airline has announced the addition of 71 aircraft to its upgrade program, bringing the total to 191. The breakdown includes 43 Airbus A380s and 28 Boeing 777s. This is in addition to the already announced upgrades for 67 Airbus A380s and 53 Boeing 777s, with the A380 upgrades already completed. This will enable the aircraft to be operational until the mid-2030s.

The first Boeing 777 to be upgraded is scheduled to begin operation in July, with a refreshed first class, the addition of 24 premium economy seats, and the introduction of ‘1-2-1’ staggered seats in business class, resulting in a four-class configuration with 332 seats. The economy class will see a reduction of 50 seats.

Tim Clark, President of Emirates, said, “Our company is investing billions of dollars in a refurbishment program to introduce state-of-the-art cabin products on more Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s, demonstrating a clear commitment to enhancing customer experience. Equipping all cabins with the best-in-class product suite, incorporating our latest generation seats, updated cabin finishes, and a contemporary color palette, is a significant step towards ensuring more customers consistently experience our premium products on both aircraft types.”
