A380 Flies Again: Qatar To Bring Back The Superjumbo From November Qatar Airways’ Airbus A380s will fly again, and sooner than even its CEO expected, with the superjumbos set to take wing in early November 2021. Five of the Gulf carrier’s A380s will initially come out of mothballs as a stop-gap measure to help the airline cope with increasing demand while 13 of its Airbus A350 jets remain grounded over claims of fuselage degradation. However, the entire ten-strong fleet could be back in the air in 2022 as the airline scrambles to match its long-haul capacity to resurgent passenger demand. “I think by early November we'll be starting to fly the A380s again” revealed Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker in an exclusive interview with Executive Traveller. “At the moment we are looking at flying five, but we may have to fly all ten.”
