Airbus completes production of last Airbus 380

MailOnLine has reported the final Airbus A380 has rolled off the production line in France amid a travel industry devastated by the coronavirus pandemic, the news source said.

An early halt to its production was announced last year following a slump in sales of the four-engined plane just 14 years after entering service.

The final convoy of parts to build the superjumbo A380 crawled towards an assembly plant in southwest France to rapturous applause from locals and workers.

Trucks carried three fuselage sections through the rural village of Levignac on their way to Toulouse – where the final superjumbo will be assembled before the model ends production in 2021.

The last of the Airbus A380 MSN 272, will be delivered to Emirates.
