In the 2023 summer timetable, Lufthansa will return some of the Airbus A380 aircraft to scheduled service. Three units are to be deployed from Munich. The super jumbos were temporarily taken out of service in the wake of the corona pandemic.
CEO Carsten Spohr thought so initially unlikelythat there will be an A380 comeback at Lufthansa. However, he later revised his opinion, so that the Kranich Group then announced the reactivation of the super jumbos parked abroad. At least part of the A380 fleet should take off commercially again in the 2023 summer flight schedule.
In the course of communicating the latest quarterly figures, Spohr said that three Airbus A2023s will initially take off from Munich in June 380. At the same time, the subsidiary Cityline will sell two to three Embraer 195s to the sister company Air Dolomiti. These are used for the usual feeder services.
Regarding the superjumbos, Spohr also said that in his view three Airbus A380s are not enough. Due to the high demand and for operational reasons, the number had to be increased. Most recently, there was official talk of "four to five A380s" to be used in the 2023 summer flight schedule. Six of the original 14 units were sold back to Airbus. The reactivation of the first Airbus A380 parked in Teruel is currently underway. The machine bears the registration D-AIMK.
