Emirates Airline has announced a $52 billion order for 95 Boeing aircraft at the Dubai Airshow. The order includes 55 Boeing 777-9s, 35 Boeing 777-8s, and an update of its order for Boeing 787 Dreamliners from 30 to 35. Emirates also confirmed an order for 202 engines from General Electric. The Middle East market is a major source of demand for widebody aircraft due to its role as a connection hub for long-haul journeys. Emirates is the largest operator of Boeing 777 aircraft and expects the first 777-9 to join its fleet in 2025.
