DUBAI: Emirates orders another 50 777-300ERs


The Dubai-based carrier is already the largest 777 operator with a fleet of 94 aircraft. It had another 41 on order before the latest announcement, which also includes options for another 20 aircraft.

“The 777’s reliability, performance and operating economics have firmly established it as the backbone of our fleet,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and CEO of Emirates.

“We have an ambitious and strategic plan to continue growing our international network and especially increasing our long-haul non-stop routes. This order supports our fleet expansion and reiterates our commitment to operating a modern fleet for the benefit of our passengers and to ensure operational efficiency as well.”
