Qantas cancels remaining A380 order for eight aircraft

Qantas has officially cancelled its order for eight Airbus A380s. The airline will continue with plans to refurbish the cabins of its existing fleet of 12 A380s starting in the middle of this year.

A Qantas spokesman said that “following discussions with Airbus, Qantas has now formalised its decision not to take eight additional A380s that were ordered in 2006” adding that the A380 “have not been part of the airline’s fleet and network plans for some time”. The cancellation will be reflected in Airbus’ end January order and delivery tables.
