The A6-EDA is a remarkable A380 with an impressive service history. It completed 6,319 flights, visited 62 destinations, and carried over 2.1 million passengers during a total of 55,863 flight hours – which is nearly six years and eight months in the air.


Following its retirement in April 2020, A6-EDA was carefully recycled by Falcon Aircraft Recycling at Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) in Dubai. The meticulous process took less than five months. While most materials of the aircraft, such as metals and plastics, were recycled back into the local waste stream, some significant parts were preserved for upcycling, resulting in the creation of this unique merchandise collection. It is now exclusively available at Aviationtag’s online store.


“The limited collection offers aviation enthusiasts the unique opportunity to own a piece of aviation history, with only 380 tags produced for each of the 62 destinations visited by A6-EDA,” says Tobias Richter, Chief Commercial Officer of Aviationtag. “We are honored to welcome Emirates, another renowned airline, to our esteemed customer portfolio.”


A portion of sales revenue will go towards supporting the Emirates Airline Foundation, which currently sponsors 14 projects in nine countries, providing assistance to underprivileged children worldwide.


The Emirates Aircraft Skin Tags are now exclusively available at a price of €59.95 on www.aviationtag.com. For more information, please visit https://www.aviationtag.com/pages/emirates-airbus-a380-a6-eda-aircraft-skin-tags


Seventeen years ago, passionate “Aviation-Geek” Stephan Boltz fulfilled his dream by transforming retired aircraft trolleys into functional design furniture through bordbar design GmbH. Over the years, he built a worldwide network within the aviation industry, and his passion for aviation grew even stronger. In 2016, the idea arose to grant retired aircraft a second life alongside trolleys, leading to the birth of Aviationtag – a piece of aviation history in your pocket. When the project reached its cruising altitude in 2018, it was time to bring another experienced aviator, Tobias Richter, on board as Chief Commercial Officer, solely navigating the Aviationtag division.
