Emirates has largest presence ever at Dubai Airshow
Emirates is showcasing its largest static aircraft display to date at the 2017 edition of the Dubai Airshow. Emirates’ full family of aircraft consisting of the airline’s 100th A380, its latest Boeing 777-300ER with new cabin interiors, the Emirates Executive A319 aircraft, and the Cirrus SR 22 and Embraer Phenom 100 jets which will be utilized by the Emirates Flight Training Academy, is on display to visitors at the event that runs from Nov. 12-16. Both Emirates B777-300ER and A380 aircraft have been emblazoned with the “Year of Zayed” decal as a tribute to the late founding father of the UAE.
Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive, Emirates Airline and Group, said: “The Dubai Airshow is a key event in the aviation industry calendar and it is fitting that the full family of Emirates aircraft will be on display this year to highlight the breadth of onboard product enhancements and innovations across our fleet. We are particularly pleased to showcase our state-of-the-art training aircraft for the Emirates Flight Training Academy. These investments will help set new benchmarks in pilot training, and reinforce Dubai’s position as a global aviation hub.”
On the first day of the Dubai Airshow, Emirates debuted its new Boeing 777-300ER first class suite. The new first class product has been entirely redesigned, with a range of new features. In addition to the first class cabin, both business and economy class cabins also boasted a number of enhancements.
The first afternoon of the airshow also featured a unique Emirates fly past comprising a Boeing 777-300ER, an Airbus A380, as well as the UAE’s air-display team, Al-Fursan. Both Emirates aircraft flew at different altitudes followed by the Al-Fursan jets in a symmetric formation. All Emirates aircraft taking part in the fly-past also featured the special “Year of Zayed” decal on both sides of the fuselage.
The Emirates exhibition stand is open to all airshow visitors. Spread across two stories, the stand features a number of Emirates divisions including: Emirates Engineering, Emirates Flight Training Academy, Emirates SkyCargo, Emirates Aviation University, Emirates UAE Sales and Emirates Official Store.
