Lufthansa Brings Back Another Stored Airbus A380

Lufthansa, the German airline, has pulled another Airbus A380, D-AIMH, out of storage. This move is part of the airline's plan to reactivate its entire fleet of Airbus A380s by 2025.


The Return of D-AIMH

The Airbus A380, D-AIMH, had been in storage since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic had a significant impact on the aviation industry, leading to many airlines grounding their fleets, including Lufthansa's Airbus A380s. However, with the gradual recovery of the aviation industry, Lufthansa has decided to bring back its stored Airbus A380s. The return of D-AIMH marks the fifth return to the carrier, all destined to be based at Munich Franz Josef Strauss Airport (MUC), in support of a robust summer schedule.


The Future of Lufthansa's Airbus A380s

By the end of 2023, Lufthansa expects to have four active A380s. In 2024, the airline plans to reactivate the aircraft D-AIMC and D-AIMH. Eventually, all eight remaining A380s will be back in service. Lufthansa plans to operate the A380 on high-demand routes, varying seasonally. For the summer 2023 schedule, Lufthansa operated the Airbus A380 on daily flights from Munich to Boston and New York. For the winter 2023 schedule, Lufthansa will operate the Airbus A380 on daily flights from Munich to Los Angeles and Bangkok. By the summer 2024 season, the plane will be operating five routes.
