120 A380s creates a storage problem for Emirates

Emirates aims to have 120 A380s when new airport space is available. The airline expects passenger growth of 20% annually and has announced plan to fulfil all 90 orders of its A380 order.

“We would like some more but we are going to run short of space,” said president Tim Clark to Reuters. “120 was the baseline figure that the planners worked to get where we needed to be, but we couldn’t order that amount because it was too many for here so 90 was a compromise.”

The carrier will order more when it gets additional space at its home base in Dubai, said Clark. That means emirates will place a further order for 30 A380s. The airline has also ordered 30 777-300ER wide-body aircraft and has stated that it is working with Boeing on the next generation of 777.
