Aviationtag is delighted to present the exclusive cooperation with Germanwings.
The Airbus A320-200 with the registration D-AIPW and the Manufacturer’s Serial Number (MSN) 137 was delivered to Lufthansa, the largest German airline, in December 1990. Under the baptismal name “Schwerin” and with 156 seats, the machine headed for international destinations such as Palma, London and Porto. In April 2015, the low-cost carrier Germanwings took over the machine and increased the passenger volume to 174 seats. A year before Germanwings ceased flight operations in 2020, D-AIPW had already been phased out and parked in Oostende/Bruges and later recycled.
With this edition they have succeeded in squaring the circle: An officially licensed edition of an airline that no longer exists.

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 A320 family
The Airbus A320 made its first flight on 22 February 1987. The narrow-body jetliner entered commercial service on 18 April 1988 with Air France.
The aircraft was the first airliner with Fly-By-Wire (FWB). The Sidestick sends signals to the flight control computers, which in turn command the flight control surfaces within the flight envelope protection. The A320 family comes with four different fuselage lengths (A318, A319, A320 and A321).
Airbus started development of the A320neo (new engine option) in December 2010. The new model has upgraded engines and big sharklets, making the aircraft much more fuel efficient. The A321neo is also available with an LR (long-range) and XLR (extra-long range) option. The first neo was delivered to Lufthansa on 20 January 2016.
