Aircraft Dismantling and Recycling

Aircraft Availability | Applicability: Airbus fleet

Airbus Aircraft Family: A300 | A310 | A320 | A330 A340 | A350 | A380

In the framework of sustainable aviation, one key element is to be able to manage the end of life of the aircraft. Airbus is committed to support the dismantling and recycling of end-of-life aircraft in an eco-efficient manner. 


Airbus can facilitate specific projects that would require retirement of some of the fleet’s assets, packaged with other services. 


In the perspective of getting maximum value from an end-of-life asset, part out activity will be conducted and made available to you.


Dismantling will be done in a manner that maximises reuse and recycling, and focuses on the safe disposal of non-recyclable parts.



  • Eco-efficiency - 92% of the aircraft can be recycled or re-certified
  • Join efforts with Satair USM - Maximise value of end of life assets via Used Serviceable Materials
