Dubai — — — A fleet of new aircraft will make its debut in the UAE as Emirates Airline takes delivery of a fleet of Airbus A350 jets.
The Emirates Air Line will fly up to 1,500 people from its Al Jumeir International Airport to Dubai, where it will be refueled and serviced.
The A350s will be delivered to Emirates on Sept. 25, 2019, a day before the new Dubai International Airport opens.
“This is a very exciting time for our aviation industry in Dubai,” Emirates CEO Hamad bin Jassim said.
While the A350 has been designed to fly low to the ground, the A320 has been engineered to be more aerodynamic and has been upgraded to carry up to 400 passengers.
Alfa Romeo has also been working on a new line of premium cars that will be based on the A330.
Emirates says it will begin delivering new A320s by the end of 2019, with a fleet expected to grow to 1.5 million by 2026.
Dubai’s Emirates Airlines fleet currently includes the Airbus A380, Airbus A320, Airbus 787-9, Airbus E-190, Airbus 777, Airbus M400, and Airbus M350.
EIA estimates that Dubai has the fourth-highest population density in the world, and the city is home to more than a billion people.
As of June 30, Dubai’s population is 7,500, according to the Ministry of the Interior.
There is a shortage of workers to replace the people leaving the region.
To fill the demand, Emirates has been selling a new fleet of A350 aircraft, which the airline says will cost between $8 billion and $12 billion.
Last month, Emirates Air Lines reported that its total operating revenue for 2019 was $1.9 billion, up 1.3 percent from the previous year.
In addition, Emirates said it has booked an additional $3.6 billion in revenue for the year.
