PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus EAD.PA said on Monday it had finalized a deal with Emirates Airline for 50 more A380s aircraft that had been announced at the Dubai airshow last month.

The contract was inked by Emirates President Tim Clark during a visit to the aircraft maker’s French headquarters in Toulouse, Airbus said in a statement.

The deal is worth $23 billion at list prices and brings total orders from Emirates alone for the world’s largest jetliner to 140 aircraft.
