List of Aviation Changes & Losses | May 2020 (TBU)

COVID 19 has had a huge impact around the entire world, and the aviation industry as a whole has really suffered from this.


This thread would consist of lists that showcase major changes in airlines, as well as airlines that have filed for bankruptcy. This is for those who would like to see a compilation of every major event that has taken place. (You wouldn’t really know the severity until you see it all on one thread)
These lists would be updated as often as possible.

I believe Virgin Atlantic retired the A340 aswell. Double-check on that though, because I’m just remembering from the top of my head.

Nice compilation

Not yet confirmed, still being considered.

Did they confirm this? I think it’s still under review. They also retired the 3 remaining A340-300s as well, in addition to some A319s.

@Bryan4558 Yeah the A340-600s were accelerated by a few months.

There’s also Corsair’s 3 remaining 747-400s that were retired recently because of COVID-19.

It’s even worse when you see all of it in one thread. 😪

Wow! One by one it doesn’t seem like a lot, but all together it seems we’ve lost a bunch of players. Thanks for putting this together.

From what I read, Air France retired one A380 in January (before COVID, but I’m including it as it was rather recent) two A380’s have been sent to Tarbes airport (France), and another two A380’s have been sent to Teruel (Spain). This is where I got the total of 5x Airbus A380’s from.

Ah, they were placed in Tarbes/Teruel for storage. Early retirement’s still being considered.

girls: you will never experience sadness
