An Airbus A380 will make a farewell flight on June 26 to celebrate the aircraft as the airline abandons the fleet after 11 years of service. F-HPJH (MSN 099) will take Air France personnel connected to the A380, including pilots, cabin crew, maintenance personnel and others on tour in France. The flight is scheduled to depart from Paris at 3.30 p.m. local time (1.30 p.m. UTC).

Air France A380 fleet

At its peak, Air France operated 10 A380s to regular destinations on five continents. Before the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Air France planned to withdraw its A380 fleet by 2022.

The airline’s A380s have been involved in two notable incidents during their 11 years of operation. On April 11, 2011, Air France flight 7 operated by F-HPJD was taxiing for departure when its left wing struck the tail of a Delta Connection (Comair) CRJ-700, causing the CRJ to rotate 90 degrees. And on September 30, 2017, Air France flight 66 operated by F-HPJE suffered an uncontrolled engine failure of its number 4 engine over Greenland.

And the F-HPJH is the second most popular A380 photo ever added to the JetPhotos catalog.
