Lufthansa to base five A380s at Mu­nich

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

LUFTHANSA IS TO TRANS­FER five of its 14-strong fleet of Air­bus A380s, pre­vi­ously based ex­clu­sively at Frank­furt air­port, to Mu­nich.

The su­per­jum­bos will be trans­ferred in time for the sum­mer 2018 sched­ules and will be de­ployed on ser­vices link­ing Mu­nich to Beijing, Hong Kong and Los An­ge­les. The move will make Lufthansa more com­pet­i­tive at Mu­nich – Emi­rates, for ex­am­ple, al­ready op­er­ates A380s from the air­port.

In other news, the car­rier will add an ex­tra weekly ser­vice to routes from Frank­furt to both Dublin and Manch­ester from Oc­to­ber 29, in­creas­ing ca­pac­ity by about 30 per cent on the Dublin ser­vice and 25 per cent on Manch­ester. Its up-un­til-now sea­sonal Glas­gow-Mu­nich ser­vice will op­er­ate four-times weekly this win­ter.
