Emirates signs purchase agreement for 50 A350-900s

Emirates Airline has signed a purchase agreement for 50 A350-900s in a deal said to be worth around $16 billion.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said: “We are pleased to sign a firm order for 50 A350 XWBs, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. This follows a thorough review of various aircraft options and of our own fleet plans. It is Emirates’ long-standing strategy to invest in modern and efficient aircraft, and we are confident in the performance of the A350 XWB. 

“Complementing our A380s and 777s, the A350s will give us added operational flexibility in terms of capacity, range and deployment. In effect, we are strengthening our business model to provide efficient and comfortable air transport services to, and through, our Dubai hub.”
