Emirates was the first airline to order the A380 and is the largest operator of the aircraft, carrying almost 47 million passengers to date. Its A380 currently flies it to 34 destinations around the world from Dubai. The airline has ordered a further 72 A380s.

Last month, Jennifer Aniston was announced as the new face of Emirates and starred in her first television commercial for the Middle Eastern airline.

The Hollywood actress showcased her impeccable comedic timing in the light-hearted ad which opened with her looking frantically for the on-board shower and lounge but being mocked and ridiculed by the cabin crew.

Friends actress Aniston reportedly signed a $5 million deal with Emirates.
