recently deployed the world’s most technologically advanced and largest passenger aircraft Airbus A380 on the Frankfurt-Miami route.
With the introduction of A380 on June 10 this year, Lufthansa has become the first airline to deploy the aircraft to Miami International Airport. Miami is the sixth destination for Lufthansa’s A380.
The inaugural flight LH462 departed Frankfurt at 9.45 am and arrived at Miami International Airport at 1.40 pm. On the other hand, the return flight LH463 departed Miami at 4.15 pm and arrived at Frankfurt at 7.15 am the following day (local times).
Jens Bischof, Member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board, Sales and Revenue Management, said, “We are extremely excited to introduce our new, flagship A380 aircraft as the very first in the Miami market. I applaud Miami International Airport’s management team for their determination to become A380-ready. We share in their excitement and are both committed to Miami’s community of global travelers in both the business and leisure markets. Now, Europe’s most highly regarded airline will serve Miami with the industry’s most advanced aircraft in date.”
Jose Abreu, Miami-Dade Aviation Director, expressed his happiness saying that the introduction of A380 is the proudest days in the history of Miam International Airport and Miami-Dade County. He said, “Lufthansa’s A380 service elevates Miami International Airport into an elite class of airports worldwide that are capable of receiving this groundbreaking aircraft. We congratulate Lufthansa and deeply appreciate them for helping us reach another historic milestone.”
Lufthansa is already operating its flight services at Miami International Airport for more than 30 years now.
The airline also said that it will reinstate its seasonal Miami-Düsseldorf flight services by operating thrice per week in October, and later on starting daily flights in November.
