Lufthansa Inaugurates Munich-Bangalore Service…
Lufthansa flight LH764 departed Munich at 1213 local time yesterday and landed into Bangalore at 0046 local time this morning.
The flight was operated by D-AIVA, one of the airline’s Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
As per data from Planespotters.net, D-AIVA is a 5.3 year old airframe which first started out life with Philippine Airlines back in July 2018.
In November 2021, the aircraft was returned to SMBC Aviation Capital following a long storage stint in Abu Dhabi before being delivered to Lufthansa in April 2022.
Of the A350-900 variant, the German airline has 21 of them, of which 20 are in active service and one is currently parked.
It is understood that this new service between Munich and Bangalore will operate on a thrice-weekly basis.
The airline took to social media to celebrate the inauguration at the German airport, with the following photos below documenting that:
Attached to these photos, the German carrier said the following on the new Munich-Bangalore service:
“Our first flight between Munich and Bangalore has taken off today. To celebrate the occasion, we organized a special event for our guests flying in the inaugural flight.”
“As of today, flights will operate three times per week between the Bavarian capital and Bengaluru.”
All eyes will be on how this new service performs, as well as whether there is any scope to expand such services going into the future.
