Clark Discusses A380neo

Emirates’ CEO, Tim Clark, believes that a re-engined A380 could perform from 10 to 12 per cent better than current models. Emirates has ordered 140 A380s and could receive upgraded models in its delivery stream from 2020. The so-called ‘A380neos’ would probably sport improved Rolls-Royce engines and some weight reductions across the airframe. However, Clark also told reporters in Qatar that he would still be happy to receive current versions of the A380 should a re-engining project not go ahead.
