Air France last took off with its Airbus A380. Today, the company said goodbye to the aircraft in a symbolic flight with selected employees around France.

The carrier ends with the aircraft eleven years after it first started flying with them. Air France was the first European carrier with this aircraft, first flying with passengers at the end of November 2009 from Paris to New York.

Their end was accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic, which significantly weakened the demand for flying and left most carriers in the world with the largest aircraft on the ground. According to the original plans, the aircraft was to end in 2022. Air France will replace it with smaller and more economical machines, especially the Airbus A350. The current operating time of the A380 is not very good, it is unnecessarily large. Many other carriers have grounded it for several years, for example Qantas will leave it weaned in the Mojave Desert for three years.

Within 2 hours and 22 minutes, the plane made its way from Paris to the Mediterranean Sea and back. The course of the flight could be monitored at Flightradar24.com. Now a total of nine planes are waiting for parking at the airport. Air France did not state what the machine will be, they will probably be scrapped. So he finished the first of ten Air France A380s. The company has previously stated that the premature end of the aircraft will cost 375 million euros.

The A380 Air France was also part of one of the most watched security incidents. In September 2017, a piece of the engine fell off the plane, and investigators finally found part of it on the west coast of Greenland under a layer of snow and ice.
