Over 18,000 people visited the new two-class Emirates A380 over the last five days at the Dubai Airshow.

That is the equivalent of filling up 30 full flights on the two-class A380, which debuted for the first time at the show.

The aircraft on display was Emirates 68th A380 and was ferried from Hamburg to the show site, allowing Dubai Airshow visitors a first glimpse on-board the brand new double-decker.

The aircraft will begin flying to Copenhagen on 1 December. It will also fly to Bangkok, Thailand.

The Emirates two class configured A380 features 58 flatbed seats in Business Class and 120 Economy Class seats on the upper deck, with another 437 seats in Economy Class on the lower deck.

The aircraft also features Emirates renowned Onboard Lounge.

The newest version of Emirates A380 will feature among the widest individual in-seat Economy Class screens in the industry, measuring in at 13.3 inches, where passengers have the choice of over 2,000 channels.

Emirates was the first airline to order the A380 and is the largest operator of this aircraft. The A380 fleet has flown over 52,000 round trips and has travelled over 700 million kilometres. Over 47 million passengers have travelled on the aircraft to date.

The Emirates A380 currently flies it to 34 destinations around the world from Dubai and the airline has 68 A380s in service with a further 72 on firm order.
