Emirates retires last Airbus A330, A340 aircraft

11-Nov-2016

Abu Dhabi: Emirates airline said on Thursday it has retired the last Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft in its fleet from active service, making Emirates the only airline in the world to operate a fleet of all Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft for its passenger flights.


Emirates’ fleet of all Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft will have a smaller environmental impact as both aircraft types have better fuel efficiency and emissions performance than the retired aircraft, the airline said in a statement. It added that it plans to further phase out some 25 aircraft over the course of 2017 and 2018 to ensure that the operating fleet remains modern and efficient.


Emirates recently retired A6-EAK from operational service. The aircraft was the last of the 29 Airbus A330 aircraft that had been operating as part of its fleet. A6-EAK joined Emirates in 2002 and had flown for over 60,000 hours, travelling close to 45 million kilometres in 14.5 years.


Emirates also phased out A6-ERN, the last serving Airbus A340 in the fleet which had joined the airline in 2004.
