Last December, Emirates received the last A380, the world´s largest passenger airliner. We will still see many of these airliners in service worldwide, but the production of it stopped last year. However, you could soon own a part of the history of aviation for yourself.

Auction in October

On 13, 14 and 15 October, 500 parts of an A380 will be auctioned by Airbus for the benefit of the Airbus Foundation and the AIRitage association. The items are mostly from the cabin of this aircraft, such as lamps, the bar, stairs, handrails, trolleys, seats, paddles, and the cockpit rescue rope. They will be offered at an auction being held in Toulouse and on the Internet.

The majority of the parts come from the A380 MSN13, which entered service in 2008, and was disassembled by TARMAC Aerosave in 2021, a company that specialises in the sustainable management of aircraft end of life. These parts were selected following the disassembly of MSN 13 by TARMAC Aerosave who are partners in the auction.

Final A380 for Emirates

First studies for a full-length double-deck jet airliner commenced in 1988. The first A380 was delivered to Singapore Airlines in 2007. Production peaked at 30 per year in 2014. But after the most significant customer, Emirates, reduced its last order in 2019, Airbus announced that the production would end in 2021. As mentioned above, in December 2021, Emirates received their final A380.
