LUFTHANSA Updates A380 Service Details From Munich

LUFTHANSA Updates A380 Service Details From Munich

In 4 weeks (on March 25, 2018), Lufthansa will finally begin deploying their A380s in Munich with flights to Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and Beijing.    Though that is not ‘new’ news, LH did provide an update today regarding the logistics at the airport when it comes to gates and security screening.    Considering the A380 can carry twice the amount of passengers as the typical long-haul planes LH currently uses in MUC, it was obvious that certain things needed to change at security screening and the gates that LH will use for the A380.

According to Lufthansa, the A380 will use gates H47 and H48 located inside Terminal 2, and gates L11 and L13 that are located in the new Satellite terminal.  In addition, gates L24/26 and L28/30 are retrofitted with a 3rd passenger bridge that will give passengers direct access to the upper deck.

Munich Airport and Lufthansa have also adjusted the security screening process to make it a bit easier to get through security and to the gate as a result of having substantially more passengers boarding the A380 as compared to other aircraft that usually use Terminal 2 and the Satellite Terminal.

Current plans call for LH to utilize 5 A380 aircraft in Munich to cover these initial routes.

Lufthansa has announced that it will deploy their A350 fleet to fly between Munich and Beijing.

Beginning on October 30, the A350 will replace the A346 that currently flies the route. This change will be in place through at least the Winter timetable that stretches between late October and Early March.

The flight numbers (LH722 ex-MUC and LH723 ex-PEK) and departure times remain the same.
