As the world's largest operator of A380s, Emirates owns 89 currently in its fleet, with a further 53 on order.
In 2016, Emirates also expanded its A380 network to 44 destinations with the addition of 8 new gate points.
The Dubai-based carrier brought A380 services to Washington, Prague, Christchurch, Birmingham, Vienna, Doha, Taipei, and Guangzhou, and layered on more A380 services to the schedules of nine other existing points spanning east to west, to highly positive customer feedback.
Today it operates the longest A380 service in the world from Dubai to Auckland, and also the world's shortest A380 service to Doha. During the year, Emirates also led one-off A380 services to two destinations - Chicago in the U.S., and Amman in Jordan.
