Airbus terminates Skymark order for A380s

Skymark Airlines A380

The only Japanese airline to order the double-decker model initially signed a firm contract for four A380s in 2011, and later increased the order with two more.

Skymark was due to fly its first A380 around the end of this year, but delivery was pushed back by up to six months because of problems fitting out the interiors of the large jetliner.

Following discussions with Skymark Airlines and in light of the airline’s expressed intentions in respect of the A380, Airbus has in accordance with its contractual rights, notified Skymark Airlines that the purchase order for the six A380s signed in 2011 has been terminated. Airbus is reserving all its rights and remedies.
