Threat to freighters as parts shortages hobble airlines, manufacturers and MRO
Buoyed by strong passenger demand, airlines have ramped up their schedules aggressively for the summer ...
Big aviation news today – even if it’s not very freight-y. Airbus is to stop production of the A380 by the end of 2021. Not even an order from Emirates could halt the end. “We have no substantial A380 backlog, and hence no basis to sustain production, despite all our sales efforts with other airlines in recent years. This leads to the end of A380 deliveries in 2021,” said Airbus chief executive Tom Enders.
The Dubai carrier has now agreed it will receive 14 more – and it has also put in an order for 40 A330-900s and 30 A350-900s.
