“We are certain outbound travel from Thailand will sustain good growth”: Lufthansa brings A380 to Land of Smiles
Lufthansa Group is expanding its capacity for Thailand on its Bangkok to Frankfurt route by using the world’s largest aircraft, the Airbus A380. It is the only European carrier operating the A380 to Thailand, demonstrating its commitment to excellent service and a one-of-a-kind travel experience. The expanded service targets both Thai customers and international visitors to Thailand seeking a unique flying experience on long-haul flights to and from Europe.
Stefan Molnar, Lufthansa Group’s general manager in Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam and the Mekong Region, said: “Lufthansa remains highly committed and confident about Thailand. It is a very important market for us. Last year we welcomed 800.000 passengers on flights to and from Thailand. We are certain outbound travel from Thailand will sustain good growth.” Currently, Lufthansa Group serves Thailand with four airlines: Austrian, Swiss, Eurowings and Lufthansa. Together they offer customers 31 weekly flights between Thailand and some of the most important cities in Europe: Frankfurt, Vienna, Zurich and Munich that has the only European five-star airport.
Lufthansa initially increased capacity by going from the Boeing 747-400 to the Airbus A380 during the 2017/18 winter schedule. This is the third season Lufthansa is operating an A380 on the Frankfurt-Bangkok route. This highlights the airline’s commitment to providing outstanding service to all its passengers, particularly in First Class and Business Class. First Class offers passengers exclusivity and privacy with only eight seats and premium features. The A380 Business Class offers 78 lie-flat seats stretching across the aircraft’s entire upper deck and unique inflight entertainment.
