Emirates, the world’s largest operator of the Airbus A380, has released a 360-video tour of the A380 cockpit. Captain Thomas Ziarno from New Zealand and First Officer Abdulrahman Mohamed Al Busaeedi from the United Arab Emirates give an immersive 360-view tour of the flight deck controls of an Emirates A380, the world’s largest commercial aircraft.
The airline took delivery of its eightieth A380 on 21 June 2016. This will be followed by the launch of a daily A380 service to Vienna. The carrier has a further 62 A380s pending delivery, of which 21 A380s will be joining the fleet this year.
Emirates has over 1,400 pilots on its A380 fleet and more than 2,500 pilots on the Boeing 777 fleet. The airline is hiring over 700 pilots in 2016 to operate its expanding fleet and will be holding multiple recruitment events across the globe to support pilot recruitment.
