Emirates, the Arab world's largest airline, could buy more Aircrafts from Boeing and Airbus and will see the delivery of some A380 planes on order delayed in 2010, its President said on Wednesday.

 


"We are looking at it (buying more planes) we are making the assessments, but clearly with the growth we have and the profit we made, there is nothing to suggest after the recession we shouldn't move rapidly," Tim Clark told Reuters by telephone.

Clark said the Airline's route expansion plans would be impacted next year due to a delivery delay in Airbus's A380 Superjumbo.

"We should have had 15 by June 2010, we are getting two in December and then the remaining 8 between January and November next year, so one or two are being pushed back".
