In a show of commitment to support Dubai’s newest architectural icon, Emirates revealed on May 4, 2022 that it has created a custom-made A380 Museum of the Future livery.
Emirates plans to have 10 of its A380s don the special livery, and the first aircraft (A6-EVK) to sport the Museum of the Future livery flew from Dubai to Los Angeles on May 5, 2022.
Over the coming weeks, the nine other A380s are expected to roll out of the dedicated Aircraft Appearance Center at Emirates Engineering. Emirates said that these aircraft will be deployed on European routes as well as key regional cities in the Arabian region.
Emirates said that the initiative underscores the airline’s unwavering commitment to support Dubai’s vision as the leading city of the future, a hub for innovation and a testbed for emerging technologies. It also celebrates the UAE’s 50 years of development and progress.
The seven storey, pillarless, torus-shaped Museum of the Future, is an exhibition space for innovative and futuristic ideologies, services, and products.
Officially opened in February 2022, it is marketed as ‘the most beautiful building on earth’, and has since become one of Dubai’s most uniquely-designed structures.
