Emirates has been phasing out older version of Boeing 777s and A380s from its fleet.
The biggest operator of Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft announced last week the retirement of its last Boeing 777-300 and two A380s,
The retirement of last 777-300 leaves the airline with only two types of “triple seven” – Boeing 777-200LR and Boeing 777-300ER.
The aircraft 777-300 served the airline for the past 16 years.
Emirates still has six Boeing 777-300ER on order and will be taking delivery of the brand new Boeing 777X aircraft – 150 on order.
Airline also retired two A380s, and said that they already have a well-arranged retirement plan for A380s.
“This (A380) aircraft will still be flying in Emirates in 2035. The fleet will stabilise at about 115…and then probably go down to about 90-100 by the middle of the next decade. So, the A380 will remain a major component of our fleet mix for the next 15 years at least…”, said Emirates Airline president Tim Clark to FlightGlobal
