Dubai: Emirates Airline said Monday it would buy 50 Airbus 350-900 widebody aircraft in a deal worth $16 billion, with delivery to begin in May 2023.

“I am happy to announce we are purchasing 50 Airbus 350 for $16 billion,” the carrier’s chairman and CEO Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum told reporters at the Dubai Airshow.

In an announcement made at the Dubai Airshow alongside Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury, Emirates chairman and CEO Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said that Monday’s firm order replaces a previous deal for 30 A350-900 and 40 A330-900 aircraft which had been announced earlier in the year.

“We are confident in the performance of the Airbus A350 XWB and we believe this aircraft this aircraft will be a good fit,” he said. “With our A350…we plan to offer different cabin configurations.”

“We’ll be able to take new aircraft to new markets, not only in the region, but also…up to 15 hours of flying time from Dubai,” he said, adding that the $16bn deal reflects Emirates’ confidence in the future of the UAE’s aviation sector and role as a travel hub.

Emirates serve a global network spanning over 158 destinations in 84 countries. Its fleet stands at 267 large aircraft, including more than 100 Airbus, 380 superjumbo.
