Emirates will celebrate a milestone in aviation history when it welcomes the delivery of its 100th A380 aircraft later this year.  

The Dubai-based airline said Saudi travellers can join in the celebration with special fares to the Middle East, South East Asia, Indian Ocean, Europe, United Kingdom and North America.

Special A380 fares will be offered to popular destinations from Saudi Arabia including Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Maldives, Munich, Paris, London, Canada, Los Angeles and New York while prices start from SR880 for Economy Class and SR3,480 for Business Class.

Bookings have to be made before September 21, for travel between September 15 and December 7, the airline added in a statement.

The Emirates A380 has been in service for over nine years, and Emirates remains the world’s largest operator of the aircraft.

The airline now operates A380 flights to 48 destinations across six continents, almost a third of its global network. This year Emirates introduced the A380 on routes to Sao Paulo, Casablanca and Nice.

Emirates operates to four gateways in Saudi Arabia - Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam and Medinah Al Munawarah.
