The airline industry in India for a long time has been floating on murky waters. However, Emirates continues to fly high. In February, the Dubai-based airways announced a commitment for 40 A330-900s and 30 A350-900s worth $21.4 billion at list prices in an agreement signed with Airbus, to be delivered from 2021 and 2024.
The airline will also receive 14 more A380 deliveries from 2019 until the end of 2021. In an exclusive interview to News Today, vice-president of Emirates (India & Nepal) Essa Sulaiman Ahmad speaks on the airlines’ new plans, market trends and technology.
