•    The newest addition to the Emirates fleet, a Boeing 777-300ER, has been configured for long-distance flights.

Emirates has another 28 Boeing 777s pending delivery, worth over $7 billion at list prices.
The newest addition to the Emirates fleet is a Boeing 777-300ER configured for long-distance flights.
Tim Clark, President of Emirates, said: "The 777s form the backbone of our fleet, and we have configured these aircraft to give us maximum flexibility in terms of route deployment.

Emirates 777s today fly to six continents from our Dubai hub, operating routes within a two-hour distance to long-range journeys of 16 hours non-stop.
"The 777 is an excellent aircraft in terms of operating economics, and importantly, the new technologies incorporated within enable us to fit it out with the latest onboard systems and passenger amenities. Emirates is committed to maintaining a young and modern fleet."
