Emirates Celebrates Start of T20 Cricket World Cup with Special A380 Livery

Emirates has painted an Airbus A380 in a special livery to celebrate and promote the ICC Mens T20 World Cup, which is currently taking place for the first time in the UAE and Oman from 17 October to 14 November 2021.

After a game of mini-cricket umpired by Indian international cricketer Shikhar Dhawan, the newly emblazoned aircraft was beckoned out as the newest player by him and over 100 Emirates Engineering employees, many of whom were involved in the installation of the special decal and form part of the nine cricket teams at the airlines engineering centre.

The ICC Mens T20 Cricket World Cup trophy also made a surprise debut once the aircraft was unveiled, and enthusiastic employees got the chance to pose with the iconic trophy.

Anurag Dahiya, Chief Commercial Officer of International Cricket Council (ICC), said, It is fantastic to see the ICC Mens T20 World come to life with this themed A380 livery, what better way to spread the appeal of the event than to transport it around the world with our long-standing partner Emirates. It has been more than five years since the last Mens T20 and the sense of excitement and anticipation is building with fans as the worlds best players descend on Oman and the UAE to compete for the ultimate prize in the shortest format of the game.

The vibrant decal covering the Emirates A380 fuselage includes pink and yellow figures batting and bowling against a purple backdrop. The decal was installed on A6-EVE.

Over the next few months, the aircraft is expected to fly across the Emirates growing A380 network, and will make visits to the UK, South Africa, The Netherlands, and other cricketing nations.

Emirates directly serves 12 nations participating in the seventh edition of the ICC T20 Mens Cricket World Cup, which is the largest cricket event to be held since the onset of the pandemic.

Boutros Boutros, Divisional Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand for Emirates Airline said, We are excited that the iconic ICC Mens T20 Cricket World Cup is taking place here in our home, the UAE, and were proud as the official airline and partner to bring in teams from all over the world to compete in what is going to be a truly memorable event fuelled by the passion of fans. The livery is just one way we are bringing the flavour of the sport to fans around the world who are feverishly looking forward to thrilling cricket action after a long hiatus, and we hope to fly this aircraft to as many cricket loving nations as possible.

Emirates has been supporting the game of cricket for almost 20 years, and is the Official Airline and Global Partner of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The airline will also sponsor the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 which will be held in India, as well as the events match officials selected from the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, the Emirates ICC International Panel of Umpires and the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, which also sees Emirates featured on their official kit.
