Emirates and Real Madrid Football Club take their partnership to new height with a huge Real Madrid decal on one of the airline’s A380 aircraft. An Emirates A380 has been emblazoned with the image of Real Madrid footballing giants: Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos, James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema and Marcelo.

The entire Real Madrid squad welcomed the aircraft at Madrid Airport Barajas to view the decal firsthand before the aircraft departed Madrid for Dubai. The aircraft is planned to travel to Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Frankfurt this week giving Real Madrid fans in these countries a chance to snap a picture of the aircraft as it makes its way around the globe.

Visible on both sides of the aircraft the entire decal totals more than 500m2 in size and shows the six players in action. It will stay on the aircraft for six months traversing the globe to Emirates’ 36 A380 destinations.
