FRANKFURT -- Lufthansa is reactivating the Airbus A380 in response to a steep rise in customer demand and the delayed delivery of certain aircraft that the carrier has on order.

Lufthansa currently has 14 A380s, all of which are in deep storage in Spain and France. Six of these aircraft have been sold. The remaining eight A380s remain part of the Lufthansa fleet for the time being.

Lufthansa expects to resume operating the A380 in the summer of 2023. The carrier is assessing how many of the A380s will be reactivated, and the destinations to which the aircraft will fly.

In a statement to customers, the Executive Board members of Deutsche Lufthansa AG said, "In the summer of 2023, we not only expect to have a much more reliable air transport system worldwide. We will be welcoming you back on board our Airbus A380s, too. We decided today to put the A380, which continues to enjoy great popularity, back into service at Lufthansa in summer 2023. In addition to this, we are further strengthening and modernizing our fleets with some 50 new Airbus A350, Boeing 787, and Boeing 777-9 long-haul aircraft and more than 60 new Airbus A320/321s in the next three years alone."

The A380 is 73 meters long and 24 meters high. Lufthansa's A380s are configured to seat 509 passengers.

BERWYN, Pa. -- Triumph Group's Product Support business has been awarded a two-year wheel and brake maintenance and repair contract from Starlux Airlines for its Airbus A350 XWB fleet. The work will be accomplished at Triumph's location in Chonburi, Thailand. The award is the third for Triumph from Starlux Airlines for wheel and brake maintenance. The previous awards were for the carrier's A321neo and A330neo fleets.

Based in Taiwan, Starlux was established in 2018, and operates A321neo, A330neo, and A350 XWB fleets. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the airline is slated to begin accepting delivery of A350 XWB aircraft in order to expand its network to North America in 2023.

"We appreciate the opportunity to support Starlux Airlines and the confidence they have in Triumph," said Jim Berberet, President of Triumph Product Support. "We continue to expand our service offerings and customer base across the Asia-Pacific region and working with customers like Starlux supports that expansion."

It conducts repairs and overhauls on a wide range of aircraft structures and components, such as engine nacelles, flight control surfaces, and various aircraft accessories.
