The jet with more than 500 passengers on board landed without further incident.
The planemaker is implementing a 2-year plan to stop making the world's largest airliner.
Airbus says that they will stop deliveries of the A380 in 2021 after Dubai-based airline Emirates reduced its order of the model by 39 planes.
Emirates is considering at least 20 of the 777X planes while weighing the cancellation of an existing deal for 40 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The airline is an ardent supporter of the jet, which was designed with luxury features like bars and showers.
Furniture constructed from parts of a decommissioned A380 could add the touch of class you are looking for.
The decision deals a fresh blow to the European planemaker's efforts to maintain market interest in the double-decker jet, barely 10 years after it went into service.
The new planes will be delivered from 2020, with engine options being evaluated.
Video and photo images posted on social media, apparently by passengers or their relatives, showed extensive damage to the front of the outer starboard engine, with part of its external cowling stripped away.
The A380 is the world's largest civilian airplane, carrying up to 544 passengers in a four-class configuration or 853 in just a single class.
