Emirates is the world’s largest A380 operator with 95 of the double-decked aircraft in its fleet and a further 47 on order. Since 2008, Emirates has flown over 80 million passengers on its A380 fleet.
Today, Emirates operates 38 weekly flights to Beijing, Shanhai, Guangzhou, Yinchuan and Zhengzhou in Mailand China
