Middle Eastern carrier Emirates will take its Airbus A380 fleet into triple figures next month when it takes delivery of its 100th aircraft.

The Dubai-based carrier will receive the Rolls-Royce Trent 900-powered aircraft on 3 November.

Emirates has ordered a total of 142 A380s and, by the end of September, had taken 98 of them.

President Tim Clark says the aircraft "continues to be hugely popular" with its customers.

Emirates has not indicated whether it is prepared to extend its A380 commitment, following Airbus's development of the A380plus.
