A380 destinations

This will delight fans of the world’s largest passenger aircraft. After an absence of almost 3 years, the Lufthansa Airbus A380 returned to the skies this summer. Currently operating between Munich – Boston and Munich – New York (JFK).

On October 5, the A380 will return with a daily flight between Munich and Los Angeles, and for the first time on October 28, a Lufthansa A380 will depart from Munich to the Thai capital Bangkok. This will increase the seating capacity by almost 75 percent compared to the A350 which operated the route previously. Lufthansa will offer more premium product on this connection than ever before: the A380 offers 8 seats in First Class, 78 seats in Business Class and 52 seats in Premium Economy.

Lufthansa is doubling the number of A380 destinations next summer. From Munich, passengers will experience the Airbus A380 on five routes: Boston, Los Angeles, and New York (JFK) and two new capitals will be added for the first time: Washington, D.C., and Delhi. Lufthansa will station a total of six “big bird” Airbus A380s in Munich and by 2025 the A380 fleet will grow to eight aircraft.

The Airbus A380 is an exceptional aircraft that provides a unique feeling of space. With its main and upper deck, the A380 offers significantly more capacity than other planes, carrying up to 509 travelers to their destination. At 73 meters long, 24 meters high, and a take-off weight of up to 560 tons, it boasts four engines with 70,000lbs of thrust each. Despite its size, the A380 is incredibly quiet due to its specially designed outer shell that muffles loud noises from both inside and outside the plane, allowing travelers to have a comfortable and peaceful flight.
