June 8, 2010, Berlin, Germany – Emirates says it has ordered another 32 A380 superjumbo
jets from European planemaker Airbus, bringing its total on order to
90.

The Dubai-based airline said the new order signed Tuesday has a
list price of US$11.5 billion. It said the planes would be delivered
by 2017.

Emirates received its first A380 in July 2008 and now has 10 of
the planes. It already had 58 on order.

Airbus CEO Tom Enders says “this is the single largest 380 order
ever.'' He described the order as a “sign of confidence in the 380
and in Airbus.''
