Lufthansa’s flagship Airbus A380 touched down for the first time at Suvarnabhumi Airport last week.
The A380 features four travel classes and the award-winning Lufthansa First Class cabin is a highlight that is not available across all the fleet, the German carrier said.
Thailand has once again proven to be one of the most important growing markets within the Lufthansa Group network.
By replacing the previous Boeing 747 – 400 for the winter timetable, there is an increase of more than 35-per-cent capacity from October to March next year between Bangkok and Frankfurt.
“It is a great pleasure for us, as the only European airline, to bring the Airbus A380 to Bangkok due to the seasonal demand we see for this market. This is an ideal aircraft for long-haul flights as it offers comfort, space and quietness,” said Stefan Molnar, general manager sales for Thailand, Vietnam and the Mekong Region for Lufthansa Group Airlines.
“We offer four travel classes on the Airbus A380. And with the reintroduction of Lufthansa First Class, we would like to demonstrate to the Thai market once again the premium services to top customers.
“For example, our caviar service is served as a separate course on the flight. In addition, we offer limousine transfer service from home to airport with BMW Series 7 for our First Class customers who purchase and travel on a round-trip ticket from Bangkok.”
The Lufthansa Airbus A380 carries 509 passengers and is configured as First Class (eight seats), Business Class (78), Premium Economy (52) and Economy (371).
Lufthansa Group Airlines – comprising Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines and Eurowings – offers more than three flights a day, 27 flights a week from Thailand to Frankfurt, Vienna, Zurich and Cologne-Bonn.
