Emirates will launch next month its redesigned first class cabin for two new European destinations, Brussels and Geneva.

The company said in a statement on Monday that it had outfitted its first two Boeing 777-300ER aircrafts to start operations on its twice daily flights from Dubai to the Belgian and Swiss destinations.

The first class cabin will have six private suites laid out in a 1-1-1 format, different from its existing 777 fleet which has eight suites in a 1-2-1 layout.

“In addition to the entirely redesigned first class product, Emirates’ new Boeing 777-300ERs will also boast refreshed features in the business and economy class cabins,” the company said.

The new design will be on display at the Dubai Airshow from November 12 to 16.

The airline at the weekend took delivery of its 100th Airbus A380 at a special ceremony in Hamburg.

The 100th A380 features a special livery as a tribute to Sheikh Zayed.
