Emirates has ordered two Boeing 777X full-flight simulators from flight training provider CAE, with the first expected to arrive in 2021.

The Middle Eastern carrier, the biggest customer of the 777X programme, also has options for four additional training suites.

With the sale, Emirates will be CAE’s fourth airline customer for the 777X. In 2017, it sold the first flight simulator to Lufthansa.

Qatar Airways also has three full-flight simulators on order, while an undisclosed Asian carrier has one on order.
