Emirates: We will operate the A380 till the mid-2030s

The status of the Airbus A380 has been questioned ever since international travel took a massive step back due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Some airlines have laid out plans to retire the double-decker prior to the disaster that was 2020, while some remained strong believers in the Super Jumbo. Emirates was one of them, as the airline had quite a hefty fleet of A380s – and once again, the airline’s executives have re-affirmed their long-term belief in the aircraft.

Positive news for Hardide about the Airbus A380 where they are already qualified for wing compression pads.  These pads will continue to be installed as replacements for the existing hard chrome plated pads during aircraft maintenance. Hardide is heavily involved with Airbus on multiple components across many aircraft platforms.
