Little by little, more and more airlines are announcing the revitalization of their Airbus A380 aircraft. Overview.
For a while it seemed like the end of the Airbus A380 was faster than expected. The coronavirus pandemic has forced airlines from around the world to shut down planes — and to rethink their fleet planning. At Lufthansa, for example, this meant that the giant behemoth would likely never fly passengers around the world again.
On September 14 it probably took off for the last time Lufthansa Superjumbo from the largest airport in Germany. The airline moved it to Teruel for storage. Even at Air France, Etihad Airways, Malaysia Airlines, and Thai Airways, the Airbus A380s are no longer making a comeback.
Singapore to phase out some A380s
Other airlines have invited at least some of their A380 fleets. Singapore Airlines, for example, only restarts 12 of its 19 giant planes. Qantas will also not operate all A380s.
Qatar Airways is not yet sure how many giant planes will return, but at the moment Doha Airlines cannot do without the A380 due to problems with the Airbus A350. Little by little, more and more airlines are activating or advertising their own super jumbo.
The image gallery above gives you an overview of the routes and when – so far – the A380s can be used.
