AVIATIONTAG Airbus A321- I-BIXN - White (Alitalia)
Aviationtag have been taking original airplane parts off from what were once real-life airliners and turning them into premium, one-of-a-kind designer and collector’s items since as far back as 2006. In 2015, Aviationtag had the idea of making the world a little bit better by upcycling scrapped airplanes into special 'Aviationtags'. Alongside commercial planes like the Boeing 747 or the Airbus A340, they have also given historical aircraft like the DC-3 “candy bomber” a second life as an Aviationtag.
The Aviationtags themselves are 100% authentic original airplane skin. The origin of the material can be traced back seamlessly all the way to when the plane was first sold for scrap.
Airbus A321: The Airbus A321 is a short to medium-range, narrow-body commercial passenger twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus. It can carry a maximum of 220 passengers. With a length of over 44 m, the A321 is the longest member of the single aisle family and about 7 m longer than the A320. After approval in 1993, the first delivery was to Lufthansa in 1994. Since then nearly 3000 A321 planes have been sold, making the longest fuselage member of the AIRBUS A320 family the second most successful model.
A big welcome to the former Alitalia Airbus A321 I-BIXN. The Airbus A321 was delivered to the Italian Sky Team member with MSN 576 in 1996 and flew for Alitalia until 2019. It was christened 'Piazza del Duomo CATANIA' and flew up to 200 passengers all the way across Europe.
In 2019, I-BIXN was finally retired and then recycled in May 2020. It is thrilled to have been able to upcycle a part of Italian aviation history into Aviationtags!
Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in haptics, thickness of material and colour. Small irregularities tell of a plane’s long history and convey the feeling of its glory days above the clouds.
Dimensions: 35 x 88mm.
