Lufthansa receives 10th Airbus A350-900
- First landing in Munich, on the 1st of June
- Award-winning cabin on display on the 9th of June
Lufthansa is expecting the arrival of its tenth Airbus A350-900 today. The aircraft bearing the registration D-AIXJ is named after the town of Erfurt, and is expected to land at its future home base in Munich around noon. A few days later, the A350-900 featuring the new Lufthansa livery will be one of the main attractions at the Family & Music Days at Munich Airport: On the 9th and 10th of June, the world’s most modern long-haul aircraft can be experienced close up. Aircraft fans should not miss the opportunity on Saturday, the 9th of June, when all visitors – young and old – can view the multi-award-winning cabin. The aircraft is open for viewing between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on that day only.
The Lufthansa A350-900 is the world’s first passenger aircraft to model its cabin light on the course of daylight. The extraordinarily lighting concept, which makes travel even more relaxed and comfortable, recently received the award of the German Lighting Design Prize 2018. This is the second time the Lufthansa A350-900 has won an outstanding award: Prior to that, the Lufthansa A350 Economy Class received the German Design Award 2018 in the category “Excellent product design”.
The A350-900 is the most modern and environmentally friendly long-haul aircraft in the world. It consumes 25 percent less jet fuel, generates 25 percent less emissions and is significantly quieter on take-off and landing than comparable aircraft types. The first of 15 aircraft entered service from its Munich base in February last year. The A350-900 can seat 293 passengers: 48 in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy Class and 224 in Economy Class.
