Emirates fleet being revamped
Emirates has begun to phase out Airbus A330 and A340 airliners consolidating its fleet with the Boeing 777 and Airbus A380. Since January 2015, Emirates has phased out 18 A330s and five A340s. The airline plans to replace a further 25 aircraft from its fleet over the course of 2017 and 2018. In 2016, Emirates took delivery of 36 new aircraft, consisting of 20 Airbus A380s and 16 777s and the ‘next generation’ 777-300ER with upgraded Business Class seats.
