Scrapping of first A380s has begun


The scrapping of two A380s stocked at Tarbes Lourdes airport has begun. On April 5, 2019, the two Superjumbos were without engines and with a few missing parts including their cargo holds and a passenger door. 92% of the structure of an A380 can be recycled, reports Aerotime citing Aero Telegraph.
9V-SKA and 9V-SKB were the third and fifth A380s to come out of Airbus assembly lines. They had been part of Singapore Airlines’ fleet since October 2007, leased by German Dr. Peters. Group, and have been stocked since June 2018 along with two others at Tarbes Lourdes Pyrénées Airport (LDE) in France, one of the biggest boneyard for unwanted aircraft in Europe.
Dr. Peters group still owns five other A380s which still operate on leased with Air France and Emirates.
Airbus has officially confirmed the end of A380 on February 14, 2019. Because of the lack of airline demand, the superjumbo production is to cease in 2021.
