Airbus says in talks with Emirates on vital A380 deal

AFP, Paris

Airbus said Thursday it was in discussion with Emirates over a deal for 36 of its A380 jets made last year, amid reports the Gulf carrier is considering converting some or all of the order to the smaller A350, potentially casting doubt on the future of Europe’s superjumbo.

Emirates’ order last January was a lifeline for the A380, the world’s largest passenger jets, coming just days after Airbus had said it would have to halt production without new orders.

But Bloomberg reported Thursday that both parties had held discussions on converting all or part of the order into the A350s, potentially putting at risk the future of the A380.

The superjumbo has struggled to win orders for Airbus since its commercial launch a decade ago, leading it to ramp down production.

“Airbus confirms it is in talks with Emirates regarding its A380 contract,” the European consortium said in a statement on Thursday, adding that details were confidential.
