Lufthansa flying to New York with the A380


Lufthansa is planning to operate flights from Frankfurt to New York’s JFK International Airport with its new A380 flagship from 18 February.


Following delivery of the fifth A380 (registration D-AIME, “Mike Echo“), Lufthansa will be using it initially for twice-weekly flights (Mondays and Fridays) to replace the Boeing 747 and Airbus A330 long-haul jets on the existing LH 400/401 city-pair flights. At the same time, the world’s biggest passenger plane will be flying the Frankfurt-Johannesburg connection daily expected from 15 February. Lufthansa is planning to increase A380 frequencies to New York step by step up to daily transatlantic services with the new flagship between Frankfurt and New York, probably by mid-April.


New York is the major destination in Lufthansa’s long-haul network, with seven daily connections from Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf. After Tokyo, Peking and Johannesburg, it is the fourth destination that Lufthansa is serving with the A380. In total, four A380s are scheduled for delivery to Lufthansa in the first half of 2011. All information on A380 of Lufthansa is available on the web
