Emirates airport may become busiest airport after orders for superjumbo Airbus for 2017

Looks like the Emirates airport will become one of the busiest airports in the region. Emirates has ordered two Airbus A380s, which will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2017, the Dubai-based airline said in a statement on Wednesday.

The airline already operates 75 of the superjumbos, while the addition of these two aircraft – which will have Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines – takes its order book for A380s to 67, according to the statement.

The order would be worth around $865 million, according to Reuters calculations based on the list price on Airbus’ website.
