Another casualty of the Covid-19 outbreak and its effect on worldwide aviation has been the early retirement of Iberia’s Airbus A340 fleet.

While the A340-300s had already been removed, the A340-600s were still in operation until recently and had some time to go before being retired.

Now all have gone, so we take a look here at where to find Iberia’s A340s now.

This may change as aircraft are sold on or moved to their final resting places. We’ll try to keep the list updated as we hear about changes.
