In May 1998, Airbus delivered the A340 with serial number 217 and test registration F-WWJG to the Spanish Oneworld member, which christened it "Agustina de Aragon".
In 2016, Iberia parted ways with its long-time "workhorses" and decommissioned the Airbus A340-300 fleet. The last commercial passenger flight with an aircraft of this type was by the EC-GUP on 14 November 2016 as IB 6166 from Boston to Madrid, writing Spanish aviation history in the process.
The year after, the "Agustina de Aragon" was transferred to Castellon for further recycling. We have managed to salvage parts of the EC-GUP and upcycle them into a limited-edition Aviationtag.
The Airbus A340 is a long-range, four-engine, wide-body commercial passenger jet airliner developed and produced by the European aerospace company Airbus. The A340 was the first commercial aircraft made by Airbus with four engines and the first civil wide-body aircraft worldwide with a digital fly-by-wire-control. The A340-300 is 63.68 m long and can carry between 295 and a 440 passengers. Its maximum range is 12,500 km.
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.
