Lufthansa will once again operate the A380 from summer 2023. The airline made the announcement yesterday. The reason for the reactivation is the sharp increase in ticket demand and, above all, the delays in ordered aircraft. This primarily affects the Boeing 777-9, whose first deliveries have now been postponed from 2023 to 2025.
At present, the number of aircraft and the routes on which they will be deployed are still being examined.
Out of the original fleet of 14 aircraft that were retired in 2020/21, only eight still belong to Lufthansa, and six have since been sold.
