We were the first airline to place an order for this ultra-efficient twin-deck, four-aisle aircraft.
Emirates A380 Environmental Facts
- The Emirates A380 burns up to 20% less fuel per seat than its nearest competitor.
- This is the most significant advancement in reducing fuel consumption and emissions in four decades.
- Lower fuel burn means lower CO2 emissions. The Emirates A380 produces less than 75g of CO2 per passenger kilometre, almost half of the European emissions target for cars manufactured from 2008 onwards.
- The A380 uses a range of lightweight materials that account for 25% of its structure.
- The Engine Alliance GP7200 engines comfortably meet the strict new ICAO Stage Four noise level standards.
- Emirates fleet, including our A380s, has 30% better fuel efficiency than the ICAO global fleet average.
- Larger aircraft mean fewer takeoff and landings (in passenger terms, this would be the equivalent of flying up to seven smaller aircraft types, for certain versions of the Emirates A380).
- Emirates continues to work closely with Airbus to further reduce weight of future A380s.
- Emirates average fleet age is less than half that of many European airlines, meaning newer technology and efficiency breakthroughs characterise our aircraft.
