Emirates Airlines History and Fleet
In the middle of the 1980, Gulf Air, until then the dominant airline in the Middle East, began to pare back its services to Dubai. To compensate for this shortfall, Dubai’s Royal Family began to back a new airline, with leased aircraft from Pakistan International Airlines as the beginnings of their fleet. From these auspicious beginnigns, Emirates Airlines was born, and as it started with more than $10 million in startup cash, it was utterly bereft of any government subsidy and had to stand on its own two feet immediately.
Pakistan International Airlines, who provided the initial planes, also trained the Emirates cabin crews at their academy, allowing them access to their top of the line facilities and helping get the project started quickly. The CEO of Emirates Airlines at the time was Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, who serves as its president to this day. He has overseen the dramatic expansion of Emirates Airlines, to become the fourth largest airline in the world by many measures, with 3600 flights per week to 154 different cities in 81 countries – and across six continents.
The Emirates Fleet as it stands today is a mix of Airbus and Boeing wide-body aircraft, as Emirates is one of the few aircraft to operate an entirely wide-bodied aircraft fleet. As of the end of Septenmebr, 2016, Emirates Airlines is the largest Airbus A380 operator in the world, with 83 A380s in operation and a further 59 ordered. Since their induction, the A380 has become a solid favourite of Emirates Airlines, especially on the most frequently-run long-haul flights.
In addition to this, Emirates is also the world’s largest operator of Boeing 777 aircraft.
