Lufthansa has announced that it will be bringing back the Airbus A380 “in response to the steep rise in customer demand and the delayed delivery of ordered aircraft”.
Starting summer of 2023, Lufthansa will once again operate the Airbus A380 aircraft. The airline says that it is currently assessing how many A380s will be reactivated and which destinations it will fly to.
The Executive Board Members of Deutsche Lufthansa AG said:
In the summer of 2023, we not only expect to have a much more reliable air transport system worldwide. We will be welcoming you back on board our Airbus A380s, too. We decided today to put the A380, which continues to enjoy great popularity, back into service at Lufthansa in summer 2023. In addition to this, we are further strengthening and modernizing our fleets with some 50 new Airbus A350, Boeing 787 and Boeing 777-9 long-haul aircraft and more than 60 new Airbus A320/321s in the next three years alone.
