First Engine Alliance GP7200 engines enter service with Emirates

The first Engine Alliance GP7200 engines have entered service with the first revenue service flight of an Emirates Airlines Airbus A380 aircraft. The Emirates flight was the first in-service A380 flight to the United States when it arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport after completing a 14-hour nonstop flight from Dubai. The GP7200-powered A380 received type certifications from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in December 2007. In addition to Emirates, the Engine Alliance GP7200 has been selected to power A380 aircraft for Air France, Korean Airlines, and the International Lease Finance Company. The Engine Alliance is in active sales campaigns with potential customers around the world.
