Emirates will celebrate a milestone in aviation history when it welcomes the delivery of its 100th A380 aircraft later this year. The airline is calling Saudi travelers to join in the celebration with special fares to the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Indian Ocean, Europe, UK and North America.

Celebratory A380 fares to popular destinations from Saudi Arabia include Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Maldives, Munich, Paris, London, Canada, Los Angeles and New York while prices start from SR880 ($235) for economy class and SR3,480 for business class.
The Emirates A380 has been in service for over nine years, and Emirates claims to be the world’s largest operator of the aircraft. The airline now operates A380 flights to 48 destinations across six continents, almost a third of its global network. This year Emirates introduced the A380 on routes to Sao Paulo, Casablanca and Nice.
On the Emirates A380, first class passengers can relax in one of 14 flat-bed, massage-equipped private suites. The cabin also has two onboard shower spas. Business class passengers can relax in seats that convert to flat beds up to 87 inches long, whilst those traveling in economy class can stretch out in seats with a pitch of up to 33 inches. Across all classes, travelers can enjoy a selection of over 2,500 channels on its inflight entertainment system, ice. The airline said its newest version of the Emirates A380 features the widest individual in-seat economy class screens in the industry, measuring in at 13.3 inches.
Emirates operates to four gateways in Saudi Arabia: Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Madinah utilising its Boeing and Airbus fleet.
