There is hardly any country or region that has survived being affected by the corona virus. The A380 Airbus, also known as the Superjumbo Jet, has also been hit. These can be removed from flights soon. A380 Airbus have not taken off in the last nine months.
During the time of the Corona virus epidemic, a significant decrease in flights was observed. Airlines and airports saw a huge reduction in flights, with most flights having to be canceled because no one wanted to open their international border due to the epidemic.
Surprisingly, at the beginning of December, only 21 out of 243 Airbus A380s were in service. According to aviation company Siriam, out of 243 Airbus A380s, only 21 were in service earlier this month due to concerns over rising costs and lower passenger demand.
Air France is the first carrier to have decided to permanently withdraw superjumbo aircraft. It plans to prematurely retire ten A380s by 2022. At the same time, the service of the world-renowned German major airline company Lufthansa is also affected by the Corona virus. Lufthansa has also withdrawn its larger aircraft A380 and reduced many more large aircraft from its fleet to ensure that all is well in the future.
Singapore Airlines, the second largest operator, has decided to retire seven of its 19 A380s permanently due to the Corona crisis. In this series, big airlines like Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways as well as Emirates of UAE are looking to discharge large passenger planes from their fleet. So far no airline has recovered from the corona virus.
The A380 is the world’s largest passenger aircraft after the Boeing 747 was discontinued. It was retired earlier this year by British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
