Nine other A380 jets with the new livery will be rolled out “over the coming weeks” and will be operated on routes to Europe as well as key Arab regional cities. The 10 jets will fly to 30 destinations around the world in the coming year, the airline said.

The seven-storey Museum of the Future opened to the public on February 22. The striking structure stands 78 metres tall and was named as one of the 14 most beautiful museums on the planet in a list compiled by National Geographic magazine in July.

The pillarless museum houses a series of interactive exhibitions that give visitors a chance to experience the technologies and trends that promise to shape the future of humanity.

Spanning 30,000 square metres, the museum is designed to foster collaborative innovation among intellectuals and scientists, and inspire solutions across the areas of sustainability, outer space, health and other critical global challenges.

It also aims to be a platform to demonstrate the latest technological discoveries, with prototypes that will evolve from emerging start-ups and established technology enterprises.

The ring-shaped, Arabic calligraphy encapsulated building will encircle both sides of the Emirates A380 aircraft with the message ‘Journey to the future’ inscribed across the fuselage, covering 336 square metres of the plane, Emirates said.

The facade is also decorated with quotes from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.
