Yep. The day’s unfortunately here. The end of the A380 is approaching with Airbus announcing the end of the production line earlier this year and this:
TARMAC Aerosave has scrapped and dismantled its first A380
- The French company began dismantling its first A380 earlier this year and completed the process a few days ago.
- They will be able to recycle 90% of the A380’s mass, meaning spare parts can be sold on the market.
- TARMAC Aerosave already has a second A380 in the scrapping process.
- These two A380s formerly belonged to Singapore Airlines (9V-SKA & 9V-SKB)

Sad to see these go. While the A380 will still remain in some fleets for another decade or so (Emirates will retire theirs in the 2030s), other airlines will be retiring theirs or sent to to be scrapped.
