2008-08-04 - A380 for EmiratesAirbus delivers first A380 to Emirates Airline

On 28 July 2008, Emirates Airline took delivery of its first Airbus A380 aircraft in an historic delivery ceremony with over 500 guests in Hamburg, Germany. The first customer A380 powered by Engine Alliance engines, was presented to Chairman and Chief Executive Emirates Airline and Group, Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum and to Emirates President, Tim Clark by Tom Enders, Airbus President and CEO and John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.

Also present was James Moravecek, Engine Alliance President and Bruce Hughes, former Engine Alliance President.
At the ceremony, Emirates unveiled its exclusive, spacious and luxurious cabin, featuring 489 seats (14 first class suites, 76 business and 399 economy). For added passenger relaxation, innovative ceiling mood lighting throughout creates a calming starry night sky effect. "Fulfilling the A380 dream has required vision, innovation, a lot of courage and determination. Emirates shared in this vision early on and today the result is the world's most modern, innovative and eco-efficient aircraft ever built. The A380 is changing the way people travel. Airbus is proud of all the engineers, staff and customers such as Emirates who have made the A380 a magnificent reality," said Tom Enders.
 Emirates is the largest customer for the A380 with 58 aircraft on order.  Four Engine Alliance GP7200 engines delivering up to 72,000 lbs of thrust each will power the aircraft, with a resultant overall fuel efficiency of only three litres of fuel per passenger per 100 kilometres.
Emirates' first A380 took off on its first commercial flight to New York on 1 August, with a number of the airline's senior executives onboard including Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline; Keith Longstaff, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Worldwide and Terry Daly, Divisional Senior Vice President, Service Delivery; and Andrew Parker, Senior Vice President, Public and Environmental Affairs. The flight, which took off at 1100hrs Dubai time, bound for New York, follows near-frenzied activity in Germany, when the airline received the first of its 58 A380s. Emotional scenes were witnessed by thousands on the ground and then millions more as pictures and news reports were transmitted around the world. The New York inaugural flight has been fully booked for some time and passengers are keen to see the talk of the airline industry for themselves. The gigantic plane is arranged in a three class configuration - 399 seats in Economy, 76 fully-flat seats in Business Class and 14 Private Suites in First Class.
