The 190 aircraft include 146 777-300ERs – one fifth of the total built. Emirates received the first in March 2005, and has 140 in its active fleet today. These are used to serve 119 destinations.

Describing the model as "a cornerstone of Emirates' success story", the Middle Eastern airline's president Tim Clark states that the -300ER "will continue to play an integral role in our operations and facilitating global tourism and trade opportunities in the years to come".

Emirates is set to be one of the early operators of the in-development 777X, having ordered 35 777-8s and 115 777-9s, Flight Fleets Analyzer shows.

Deliveries will begin in 2020, Clark notes.
