Modified Emirates A380 superjumbo jet has resumed passenger service.

An Emirates A380 superjumbo jet that has been modified has resumed passenger service. It is the first of 120 airplanes operated by airlines based in Dubai that have finished a two-year, multi-billion dollar fleet makeover.

According to a statement from the airline, the 3.1-year-old Emirates A380-800 aircraft, registered A6-EVM, resumed passenger service on a flight between Dubai (DXB) and London (LHR) on January 6, 2023.

The redesigned A380 has 56 Premium Economy class seats on the main deck and new color schemes that can be seen in the wall panels and carpet.

The airline’s ‘game changer’ product, cream-colored leather upholstery, and lighter-toned wood finishes are featured on the top deck’s First and Business Class seats. In addition to being prominently displayed throughout the interiors

Emirates’ ghaf tree motif also appears on hand-stenciled panels in the First Class Shower Spa, according to a statement from the airline.

The airline is currently concentrating on refurbishing its other A380, designated A6-EUW. It is anticipated that the project will be finished by the end of January 2023.

Emirates’ two-year retrofit project, which was initially announced in early August 2022, is a multi-billion dollar investment made by the airline with the goal of enhancing passengers’ in-flight experiences.

The carrier wants to completely redesign the cabin of four of its aircraft each month.

“As the program advances, engineers will concurrently work on two planes. This entails that every eight days, one aircraft in the fleet would be taken out of service and brought to Emirates Engineering facilities, according to the airline.

 All 67 Emirates A380s slated for renovation will be operational once again by 2024.

 “The capacious A380 will appear and feel even more remarkable and pleasant, and customers will sense the change the instant they get onboard.

This freshly restored aircraft enhances the inflight experience for all classes of passengers and allows us to provide more Premium Economy seats to fulfill demand, according to Emirates CEO Tim Clark.

Following the refurbishment of its A380 fleet, the airline intends to begin work on its Boeing 777s.
