Dubai Air Show Orders I.


On the first day of the 2007 Dubai Air Show great orders were revealed, and there are three more days to go…

Emirates have voted for Airbus, by placing the largest order to date for the new Airbus A350, by 70 pieces. They took option on an additional 50, while added 11 A380 to the already largest fleet of A380’s to raise the total number to be operated by the airline to 66 (47 original orders + 8 commitments earlier this year, and the 11 yesterday). If they take all of their options on the A350’s, Emirates would operate a 186 piece modern Airbus fleet by the end of the next decade (!). By selecting the A350 over the Boeing B787 Emirates gave a boost to the new Airbus program. Probably to bridge the time before the A350’s arrive, they also placed an order with Boeing for 12 long-range 777-300ER’s.

Qatar Airways Logo  Qatar Airways on the other hand selected Boeing with placing firm orders for 30 B787 Dreamliners with options for another 30, while buying 27 B777’s as well, with 5 options. This is a total of 57 firm + 35 optional orders.

Virgin Nigeria Logo  Virgin Nigeria ordered 10 Embraer jets. The order consists of 7 E170 and 3 of the larger E190, with options for 6 more E190 regional jets.

The show goes on until Thursday and will display daily flights of the A380.
