Introducing the Exclusive Aviationtag Air France Airbus A380 Glare!

Discover the latest Aviationtag edition: the F-HPJF, the second Air France Airbus A380 after the F-HPJA. Delivered to Air France in 2011 with MSN 64, this majestic aircraft served the French flag carrier for only nine short years before being decommissioned in Spain in 2020. With the flight number AF380, the Airbus was transferred to Teruel on 25.4.2020 and initially parked there during the Corona crisis. Since 2023, the A380 has finally been recycled, with parts of it ending up for upcycling in Cologne.

A special novelty is that for the first time, Aviationtags have been produced from GLARE, an innovative hybrid material made of aluminum and glass fiber laminate. The use of a special water jet cutting technology allowed precise shaping of these unique Aviationtags, making them coveted collector’s items for aviation enthusiasts and suitable for use worldwide as keychains or luggage tags.

We also have the blue version, which can found here.

Please be advised: Owning an Aviationtag, is owning a piece of history. During the airplane’s long life, the skin has developed some unique properties which make each tag different. Depending on the aircraft and what part it’s manufactured from, tags may show differences in material, color, thickness, and finish. For example, small scratches and flaking paint are perfectly normal, and these imperfections reflect on the long history of the aircraft. They give the tag its unique look and make it an excellent aviation collectible!

When using the Aviationtag as a keychain or luggage tag, we strongly advise using the original Aviationtag cover to preserve the finish.

History of the Airbus A380

The Airbus A380, known as the “Superjumbo,” took its first flight on April 27, 2005, and entered commercial service with Singapore Airlines on October 25, 2007. It was designed to meet the demand for long-haul travel on busy routes.

The A380 comes in a single model, the A380-800, with a massive wingspan of approximately 261 feet and 8 inches (79.75 meters). A range of up to 8,000 nm, makes it ideal for long-distance flights. Its standout feature is its double-decks with spacious interior, accommodating up to 853 passengers in a typical two-class configuration, providing a comfortable flying experience.

However, economic challenges emerged as the program continued. Airbus decided to cease production by 2021 due to unprofitability, High development costs and a selling price insufficient to cover production expenses led to this decision. 

Despite its challenges, the Airbus A380 remains a symbol of luxury and efficiency, offering exceptional comfort and performance for long-haul flights. The end of production marked the closing chapter of this iconic aircraft’s journey.
