Lufthansa’s cheap flights to Tokyo from Frankfurt will begin using the airline’s new A380 aircraft this summer.
A380 services to the Japanese capital will commence on June 11th and will replace the existing route operated by a Boeing 747-400.
Lufthansa’s first A380 route will depart for Tokyo’s Narita International Airport from Germany’s financial centre on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while return flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Elsewhere, the German national carrier will introduce further A380 flights to Beijing from Frankfurt on August 25th, with services operating three times a week.
Airports around the world are currently upgrading their facilities in order to accommodate the A380, which is the world’s largest passenger aircraft.
Passengers travelling from Frankfurt board Lufthansa’s A380 on two levels, with the aircraft able to accommodate a total of 526 passengers.
Meanwhile, the carrier commenced flights to Dusseldorf from Edinburgh on Monday (April 26th), while a second daily service to Frankfurt is being introduced from the Scottish capital.
