Dubai-based Emirates airline on Sunday announced that it will pay a tribute to UAE's space mission with a special livery on an A380 aircraft.

"We are proud to celebrate the UAE's historic journey to space with a special livery on our flagship Airbus A380 that will soon take off to the skies," Emirates said on Twitter.

Hazzaa got a royal welcome as he returned to the UAE on Saturday after becoming the first Emirati in space and the first Arab on the International Space Station (ISS). His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, received Hazzaa and his mission's backup astronaut Sultan AlNeyadi as they landed at Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi on Saturday evening.
