Both Emirates B777-300ER and A380 aircraft will be emblazoned with the “Year of Zayed” decal as a tribute to the late founding father of the UAE.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group, said: “The Dubai Airshow is a key event in the aviation industry calendar and it is fitting that the full family of Emirates aircraft will be on display this year to highlight the breadth of onboard product enhancements and innovations across our fleet. We are particularly pleased to showcase our state-of-the-art training aircraft for the Emirates Flight Training Academy. These investments will help set new benchmarks in pilot training, and reinforce Dubai’s position as a global aviation hub.”

On the first day of the Dubai Airshow, Emirates will debut its new Boeing 777-300ER First Class suite. The new First Class product has been entirely redesigned, with a range of new features. In addition to the First Class cabin, both Business and Economy Class cabins will also boast a number of enhancements.

The first afternoon of the airshow will also feature a unique Emirates fly past comprising of a Boeing 777-300ER, an Airbus A380, as well as the UAE’s air-display team, Al Fursan. Both Emirates aircraft will fly at different altitudes followed by the Al Fursan jets in a symmetric formation. All Emirates aircraft taking part in the fly-past will also feature the special “Year of Zayed” decal on both sides of the fuselage

The Emirates Flight Training Academy will be officially inaugurated on the second day of the Dubai airshow.

It is set to offer advanced learning technologies and state-of-the-art training aircraft for cadets to develop their flying knowledge and skills.
