Bahrain International Airshow
This year at the Bahrain International Airshow, Emirates fans will be treated to its 4-class Airbus A380 aircraft attempting to take center stage.
The Emirates airline’s new generation OnBoard Lounge and Shower Spa will be on show. Plus, those eagerly awaiting to try Emirate’s new premium economy class product will have their opportunity to try it out during a tour of the plane.

- The Middle Eastern airline giant will not just be displaying its four-class Airbus A380 aircraft but also its Embraer Phenom 100 training aircraft. Let’s look at what the airline is aiming for show attendees to notice:
Currently, the biggest operator of the type in the world and currently servicing 37 destinations in 25 countries with the double-decker, Emirates has recently refreshed its OnBoard Lounge and Shower Spa exclusively for its 1st-class passengers. Those elite passengers will enjoy the amenities on offer, such as its private suites and private collection of Bvlgari amenity kits.

Emirate’s new premium economy cabin will offer 56 seats in a modest 2-4-2 configuration. Seats are furnished in the airline’s classic cream leather and wood paneling (some passengers may recognize the similarities from business class). The 40-inch seat pitch and 19.5-inch width of the seats will have passengers upgrading from economy, relishing in their newfound luxury. 6-way headrests and a 13.3-inch TV screen, one of the biggest for the class, will provide comfort for those on the airline’s long-haul services.
Emirates Flight Training Academy
The airline’s training aircraft, the Embraer Phenom 100, will also be on the apron in Bahrain. Utilized with the Emirates Flight Training Academy (EFTA) around Dubai World Central (DWC), the training facility is one of the most advanced training facilities for pilots globally. Provided its size and spread over the area of 200 football fields, the academy is treated to a 5,900 feet (1,800 meters) dedicated runway and its air traffic control tower. The training academy homes 5 such training aircraft, including its Phenom 100EV and 22 Cirrus SR22 G6.
The Phenom 100EV features some of the best avionics available and the industry’s first touchscreen glass flight desk, which is designed to provide cadets with ease for graphical flight planning.
Emirates Airlines has been serving the Kingdom of Bahrain since 2000 and commonly uses its Boeing 777 to the kingdom. However, on occasion, it’s treated to a visit from the airline’s double-decker to mark special occasions such as national days or the Bahrain International Airshow.
The airline currently operates at Bahrain International Airport (BAH) from Dubai International Airport (DXB) 3 times daily, with a short hop of usually 50 minutes in duration.
