Emirates Dilemma In fleet extension Between Airbus and Boeing

Emirates is in a dilemma over whether to stick with Boeing freighters or invest in an Airbus model as the airline plans to double its current capacity in the next ten years. As reported by Bloomberg, the UAE's national airline is considering the advantages and disadvantages of the Boeing 777-8 freighter and the Airbus A350F. 


Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, suggested at an industry conference in Singapore that a decision might not be reached for another four years. He stated that the airline will "evaluate, hopefully by 2027, whether we require a different mix to what we have already". 


The airline plans to expand its capacity further by converting some of its Boeing 777-300ERs from passenger planes to cargo aircraft. Sultan also noted a surge in demand for Emirates SkyCargo's services post-COVID-19 pandemic. He said, "We're probably at a much more stable stage now.

We've passed the bottoming out. We've seen consistent growth." According to ch-aviation.com, Emirates is awaiting the delivery of five more 777-200s to add to its current fleet of 11. In May 2023, Emirates also announced the arrival of two new wet-leased Boeing 747-Fs. In total, Emirates' cargo division expects 15 more freighters from announced orders and its freighter conversion program to enhance its fleet.
