Emirates is sending its oldest Airbus A380 for scrap, offering part of it to the masses as furniture

Emirates has two new A380s to take charge.

Emirates is still waiting to receive its last two Airbus A380s, but at the same time it is definitely decommissioning the oldest piece of the world’s largest passenger plane. The oldest model in the A6-EDA registration fleet will end up in the Falcon de-recycling process. The company promises to supply most of the materials from the used machine for further use.

The conversion and liquidation will take place in the United Arab Emirates, where the two companies are based. Emirates claims that, unlike getting rid of other aircraft, it will not only focus on sourcing the most interesting components. This isn’t the first A380 that Emirates has started getting rid of, it’s the first pieces It ended up taking it apart last year. But it is now the A380, which was historically the first aircraft of this type in the Emirates fleet. It flew from summer 2008 until the outbreak last year, and has been on the ground ever since.

190 tons to use

According to Emirates, the partnership with Falcon aircraft recycling is unique.”Through this initiative, our customers and fans can take home a piece of aviation history while saving valuable items from landfills and donating to charity through the Emirates Airline Foundation. It is an elegant solution to depart from this legendary and pioneer aircraftTim Clark, President of Emirates Airlines, said:

According to Andrew Tonks, director of Falcon Aircraft Recycling, about 190 tons of metals, plastics, carbon fiber composites and other materials will be recycled from the aircraft. Some of the materials will be used in cooperation with Wings Craft, which specializes in the production of custom furniture and other aerospace goods, and Falcon Aircraft Recycling will design and manufacture one-of-a-kind collectibles. They will be on sale in the coming months. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will go to Emirates Airlines.
