Golf carrier Emirates took over the last Airbus A6 on Thursday with the A380-EVS. Since the production of the superjumbos has been discontinued, it is very likely the last unit of this type ever built.

From Emirates Airline's point of view, it is A380 number 123. The golf carrier is the world's largest buyer of this type of machine. “The A380 is a very special aircraft in many ways. It has given us the opportunity to redefine the travel experience, efficiently serve the demand at airports with limited slots and support the growth of our route network. The A380 will remain the flagship of Emirates in the years to come and will represent an important pillar of our flight plans, ”said Emirates CEO Tim Clark.

Emirates was the first airline to announce an A2000 order at the Farnborough Air Show in 380, when it was still being marketed as the "A3XX" - in 2001 the firm commitment and an additional order for 15 more copies followed. This commitment from Emirates was decisive for the start of the program, which developed and launched the largest commercial aircraft in the world with a full-length double deck and a spacious cabin interior. The Airbus A380 has been a passenger's favorite since its first flight and is a source of enthusiasm among travelers wherever it is used.

“The aircraft that is being delivered to us today is fitted with our latest cabin products, including Premium Economy Class. When compared to our very first A380 in 2008, it becomes clear how many improvements we have made to ensure an incomparable flight experience every time. We would like to thank Airbus and all of our program partners for making it possible for us to push the boundaries of introducing many industry innovations and deliver the best product for Emirates travelers, ”said Sir Tim Clark.

Guillaume Faury, CEO of Airbus, added: “The A380 has touched the lives of so many passengers with the new standards it has set for flight and travel experiences. I am confident that this will continue to be the case with Emirates for decades to come. The airline has continuously introduced new products and services that enable passengers around the world to experience the uniqueness of the Emirates A380. On behalf of all Airbus teams, I would like to use this milestone in the delivery to thank Emirates - the world's largest A380 operator - for their unwavering trust and partnership. "

The A380 that was delivered yesterday features the airline's latest on-board products: including private suites and spa showers in First Class, the extremely popular A380 on-board lounge on the upper deck, the new Premium Economy Class and the current version of the ice on-board entertainment program.

At the Dubai Airshow 2021 in November, Emirates announced an extensive retrofit program, as part of which 52 of its existing A380 aircraft will be equipped with Premium Economy Class and other improvements. With this, the airline underscores its ongoing commitment to keep the A380 experience at the highest level.
