(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Emirates airline and Airbus have completed discussions and signed the firm contract for 50 additional A380s originally announced at the Dubai Airshow on November 17. This brings up the total order to 140 A380s.

The contract documents were finalised by Emirates president Tim Clark during a visit to Airbus' headquarters in Toulouse, France.

He said on the occasion: "The A380 is our flagship aircraft. It is popular with our customers and delivers results for us in terms of operational performance. That is why we have ordered these additional 50 aircraft, to add to our A380 fleet."

"This order is a major vote of confidence in the A380. Since delivery of their first aircraft in July 2008, Emirates' A380 fleet has grown to be the largest in the world with 44 A380s in operation. We congratulate Emirates on this impressive achievement and thank the airline for their continued support of our flagship aircraft. As Tim Clark has often said, the A380 really is a game-changing aircraft," said John Leahy, Airbus' chief operating officer for customers.

Since first entering service in 2007, 122 A380s have been delivered to 10 world-class carriers to date. The aircraft flies 8,500 nautical miles or 15,700km non-stop, carrying more people at a lower cost and with less impact on the environment.
