Deutsche Lufthansa AG will return the Airbus SE A380 double-decker jet to service next summer, reversing its pandemic-era decision to retire the aircraft as travel demand soars.

The carrier is assessing how many 500-seat A380s will need to be reactivated and where they should fly in summer 2023. One reason for bringing back the four-engine model is delays in deliveries of ordered aircraft, Lufthansa said in a statement Monday.
