BREAKING | Emirates is considering ordering more long-haul aircraft, Tim Clark says

Emirates President Tim Clark said on Tuesday that the airline may acquire more Airbus A350, Boeing 777X, or 787 planes as it plans for demand until the 2030s. "We are looking at both more A350s, more 777-9s, and possibly the 787 range," Tim Clark told reporters on the margins of a global airline gathering in Istanbul.

He refused to discuss the number of planes engaged. "All I will say is that we are considering purchasing a number of additional aircraft," he stated. The Boeing 777X is a projected family of two large twin-engined planes, the 400-seat 777-9 and the smaller 777-8. Its deployment has been delayed for several years due to certification and engine development concerns. 


Emirates cut its order for 150 777X planes to 126 as part of an agreement in which the airline ordered 30 787 Dreamliners in 2019. Clark said in Istanbul on Tuesday that he was "perhaps a little more confident" in Boeing's ability to deliver the new aircraft, adding that the first aircraft will arrive in the fourth quarter of 2025.
