Due to a large influx of air travel demand, Lufthansa has made the decision that it will be returning eight of its Airbus A380s to commercial service by 2025. All of the aircraft are due to be based at the carrier’s hub in the German city of Munich.

At present Lufthansa has already returned three Airbus A380s to service, those are registered D-AIMK which returned in June 2023, D-AIML which returned in July 2023, and D-AIMM which also returned in June 2023.

All three aircraft operate out of Munich to currently two destinations, New York’s JFK Airport, and Boston. The remaining five that the carrier will be put back into commercial service will be slowly brought back in over the next two years.

We had covered an article piece a couple of months ago when Lufthansa returned its first Airbus A380 to commercial service, following a three-year hiatus in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Read our article here.

Prior to the pandemic, Lufthansa operated a total of 14 Airbus A380s, however, as the pandemic set in, the carrier, amongst others who also operate the SuperJumbo type decided to put the aircraft into storage.

Since the decision was made to bring some of their aircraft back, the remaining six aircraft that Lufthansa had have since been sold.
