Emirates completes fleet refurbishment
Emirates has announced that the airline has completed the refurbishment of its Boeing 777-200LR fleet. The aircrafts now feature two class cabins instead of three. Business class seats are now wider and in a 2-2-2 format and the economy class has been refreshed. The aircraft refurbishment came at an investment of USD $150 million (approx. AUD $208 million) and took over 160,000 man hours to complete.
The new Emirates Boeing 777-200LR aircrafts will be operating daily out of Adelaide, as well as a number of global destinations including Santiago, Sao Paulo and Fort Lauderdale.
As well as news of the fleet refurbishment, Emirates has also announced it’s in the process of retiring the last two Boeing 777-300 classic aircraft in its fleet. The airline will also be taking delivery of six new Airbus A380s, which will operate daily from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
