Winter: Lufthansa Deploys Airbus A350-900s to Frankfurt
For the duration of the winter timetable (until the end of March 2021) Lufthansa will be deploying four of the currently parked Airbus A350-900s to its hub in Frankfurt.
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 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.
The A350-900 not only offers Lufthansa customers a top product onboard, but it is also extremely environmentally friendly, efficient, and quiet. Compared to a Boeing 747-8, the Airbus A350-900 consumes around 12 percent less fuel and emits less CO2.
At the same time by operating the A350-900 in Frankfurt, the fleet will be optimally used in an efficient and sustainable way under the current circumstances.
The Airbus A350-900 is one of the most modern and environmentally-friendly long-haul aircraft in the world. Lufthansa’s A350-900 fleet currently includes 16 Munich- based aircraft.
Due to the reduction in the number of flights as a result of the corona pandemic, only 7 A350-900s will initially be operated at Munich in the winter timetable of 20/21 on routes to North America and Asia.
