Airbus, Emirates Confirm A380 Deal for Up to 36 Superjumbos
By Alberto Delclaux
Airbus SE (AIR.FR) and Emirates Airline signed a contract for 20 A380 planes and an option for 16 more, firming up an earlier memorandum of understanding, the two companies said late Sunday.
The Dubai-based airline and the plane maker had announced the deal in mid-January, which extended a lifeline to the struggling superjumbo program.
The 36 aircraft are valued at $16 billion at list prices.
