Lufthansa has today confirmed that the Airbus A380 will return to the skies this summer. While the return has been confirmed by the flag carrier, details of where the largest passenger aircraft will fly are currently unknown. The entire Lufthansa fleet is currently in storage at two locations across France and Spain.

If any airline was likely to bring the Airbus A380 back, it didn't seem like it would be Lufthansa. The German flag carrier was quick to ground its giants after a handful of repatriation flights at the start of the pandemic. As the COVID crisis continued, the airline group's CEO, Carsten Spohr, revealed that the aircraft would likely never return.

Details remain sketchy

Details of the Airbus A380's return remain fairly sketchy for the time being. While the airline has confirmed that the giant of the skies will be back, it says more specific details are still being discussed. Lufthansa revealed that it is still assessing how many A380s would return to service, and which destinations these jets could fly to.

Lufthansa operates two main bases, Munich Airport, and Frankfurt Airport. It is also unclear which of these the giant will return to, though we hope that it's both! Frankfurt is the busier airport, but it also has the Boeing 747 fleet already.
