Emirates to looking to modernize their fleet

Emirates has revealed that an order for between 100 and 150 aircraft is nearing completion. The airline located in Dubai is planning forward as it considers replacing its fleet of Airbus A380 in the future.

Modernizing the fleet

The airline’s management is committed to meeting demand as the market quickly bounces back from the pandemic’s dip. In this subsequent chapter, it is therefore competing to maintain its lead.

Emirates has been putting its superjumbos through an intensive retrofitting process. However, as demand continue to evolve, the carrier is considering the industry’s future.

Sir Tim Clark, the president of Emirates, told reporters in a meeting at the IATA AGM in Istanbul this morning that his company is getting ready to buy more planes, possibly more Airbus A350 and Boeing 777X twinjets. Also planned are 787 Dreamliners. Clark did say, though, that he is a big fan of the A350’s effectiveness.

As Clark said:

“We are considering purchasing many airplanes… A significant demand exists. We are considering strategies to get us through the year 2030. Additionally, the fleet is being driven by a number of growth initiatives that span the globe and both sides of the Atlantic. We now have incredible capabilities thanks to the A350, allowing us to launch a few routes that may have been too narrow for the 777ER.

Adding up the figures

With both Airbus and Boeing, Emirates already has a sizable aircraft order portfolio. Delivery of 50 A350-900s, five 777-200Fs, 16 777-8s, 99 777-9s, and 30 787-9s are still pending. Before today’s disclosure, it was planning to receive 200 planes in total.

Turkish is interested in the 787 and A350, just as Emirates. It may additionally take into account up to thirty 777Xs. Turkish, like Emirates, is seeking for a large number of narrowbodies. On shorter flights, however, Emirates is pleased to collaborate with neighbor flydubai.

We won’t have to wait long to hear from Emirates’ management with an update. The confirmation, according to Clark, might occur this month or at the Dubai Air Show. It won’t come as a surprise to learn the news at the Paris Air Show, which takes place in a few weeks.
