The countdown to the delivery of the most modern long-haul aircraft and the newest addition to the Lufthansa fleet has now started. On 19 December 2016, Lufthansa will receive its first A350-900 and two days later, on 21 December, the Airbus will be transferred from Toulouse to Munich. It is expected to arrive sometime in the afternoon. Subsequently, the A350-900 will be making guest appearances at a number of different German airports: in the period before and after the Christmas holidays, Lufthansa pilots will be carrying out flight training exercises with a range of different takeoff and landing procedures. Details regarding the transfer flight and the flight training exercises will be released later on.

Exclusive A350 flight from Munich to Hamburg on 9 February

One day before the A350-900 takes up regular commercial service from Munich to Delhi on 10 February 2017, it will take off for a special flight. For the very first time, the A350-900 will depart with passengers on board on 9 February. On this flight from Munich to Hamburg and back, guests will have the unique opportunity to be one of the first passengers on board of the world’s most modern long-haul aircraft. Takeoff will be at 10.30 am and landing in the Hanseatic city is scheduled for 12.00 pm. The passengers will return to Munich at around 5.00 pm. The ticket price of €179 comprises a return flight with all taxes and fees and also includes a reception with breakfast and sparkling wine before the takeoff in Munich – as well as a gate event in Hamburg and much more. Another special feature of the Hamburg flight: if you book early, you have a good chance of traveling in Business Class or Premium Economy Class for the same price of €179. The flight can be booked on LH.com/A350 from 13 December onwards.

Lufthansa plans to base ten type A350-900 aircraft at their Munich hub. In total, 25 aircraft were ordered; it has yet to be decided where the remaining 15 aircraft are to be based. The world’s most modern long-haul aircraft is an investment in the future – it produces 25 percent fewer emissions than comparable types of aircraft and is also considerably quieter during takeoff.
