Lufthansa will be deploying four of the currently parked Airbus A350-900s to its hub in Frankfurt during the winter season.
The Airbus A350-900 is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly long-haul aircraft in the world.
Over the next few months the A350-900 will be serving Chicago and Los Angeles from Frankfurt, by temporarily replacing the Boeing 747-8 for this period of time.
From December onwards, the ultra-modern A350-900 will also be flying from Frankfurt on the route to Tokyo/Haneda instead of the Airbus A340-300.
All flights will be operated by Munich-based cabin and cockpit crews.
Compared to a Boeing 747-8, the Airbus A350-900 consumes around 12 percent less fuel and emits less CO2.
Lufthansa’s A350-900 fleet currently encompasses 16 Munich- based aircraft. Due to the sharp reduction in the number of flights offered as a result of the corona pandemic, only seven A350-900s will initially be operated at Munich in the winter timetable of 20/21 on routes to North America and Asia.
