The A380 superjumbo passenger plane is finally making a comeback as demand for travel increases. Being the world’s largest passenger plane, it seemed to be out of commission just two years ago. This was because airlines were grappling with the spread of coronavirus and the demand for travel was at a low.
Many planes went into long-term storage, and some airlines even took the chance to get rid of their A380s altogether. Air France retired its fleet in May 2020. But as passenger numbers rise and air traffic returns to normal levels, the specific place is making a comeback. More than half of the global fleet is already back in service.
Geoff Van Klaveren, an aviation analyst and managing director of advisory at IBA said “It’s definitely having a comeback, … Operators were quite reluctant to bring it back because it’s a very costly airplane, but I think we’ve seen demand recovering faster than people expected.”
