Voted the world’s best airline in the Skytrax Ranking 2019, Qatar Airways is now also part of the Aviationtag fleet with its former Airbus A340-600 registered as A7-AGB. The A340 was built by Airbus in 2006 with the MSN 715 and test registration F-WWCR before being delivered to Doha. Qatar Airways christened the plane “Ras Dukhan”.
Just 13 years after entering into operation, Qatar Airways’ A7-AGB was retired in May 2019 and transferred from Doha to Enschede in the Netherlands, where it was recycled and parts of the outer skin were upcycled into our Aviationtags.
The number of airworthy four-engine wide-body aircraft still out there worldwide is now decreasing slowly but surely, but once again, thanks to the A7-AGB Aviationtag edition, a piece of quad wide-body aviation history has been preserved.
Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds. Small scratches, flaky paint and imperfections are totally normal and give our Aviationtags their unique charm – the charm of a vintage product crafted from upcycled materials. These quirks are not the result of the production process, they simply reflect the state of the aircraft material we use when it was extracted. The original aircraft paint of this edition is rather sensitive, so please take good care of your tag!
The Airbus A340-600: The A340-600 is 12 m longer than an A340 -300, more than 4 m longer than the Boeing 747-400 and even 2.3 m longer than the A380. It held the record for the world’s longest commercial aircraft until the first flight of the Boeing 747-8 in February 2010. The maximum take off weight is 360 tons including a cargo volume of up to 201.7 m3.
