EMIRATES used the Farnborough shop window for a strong media push, the major story an order for up to 13 Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) aircraft with delivery from next year. By late 2007 Emirates will have 51 Boeing 777s, giving it one of the world's largest 777 fleets. Emirates will use the 777-300ER to extend routes to key European and Asian cities, and fly to emerging markets. The airline currently serves 77 destinations and has implemented an aggressive growth plan. The airline has signed an agreement with Matsushita Avionics Systems making MAS the sole supplier of in-flight entertainment systems to the Emirates fleet which will total 169 by 2012. On the A380 front Emirates announced a deal with B/E Aerospace for First Class Suites for its fleet based largely on the innovative Suites installed in its A340-500 aircraft. Thirty-one aircraft of the 41 A380s in the current order book will receive the suites, laid out in 1-2-1 configuration. The airline has also contracted with CAE of Montreal for two A380-800 and one A340-600 full-flight simulators. They will be installed at the Emirates Aviation College in Dubai by mid-2006, in preparation for the delivery of the new aircraft.
