Lufthansa’s first reactivated A380 returns to Munich ahead of service restart

Lufthansa’s first reactivated Airbus A380 aircraft returned to Munich Airport (MUC) on April 12, 2023, after a three-year hiatus. The nine-year-old aircraft was used by Lufthansa for its North American and Asian routes. It was then placed in storage at Teruel Airport (TRL), along with the airline’s 13 other A380s, after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. In January 2023, the A380 aircraft, with registration D-AIMK, spent time at Lufthansa Technik’s site in Manila International Airport (MNL), where it received over 30 days of heavy maintenance and checks.
