Lufthansa marks anniversary with 747-8 service to KoreaLufthansa Airlines said it is temporarily introducing the new Boeing 747-8 to Korea to celebrate 30 years of flying to the country.
As the longest commercial passenger aircraft currently in the air, the B747-8 is often compared with the Airbus A380. Lufthansa’s B747-8 fleet is configured to seat 386 passengers.
“Lufthansa has been connecting Korea and Europe since the first operation of the Seoul-Frankfurt route in 1984,” said Christopher Zimmer, general manager of Lufthansa.
“This year is the year Lufthansa celebrates its 30th anniversary in Korea, and we are happy to introduce the new aircraft to Korean passengers.”
Lufthansa was the first airline to order the next-generation aircraft and has been flying them since June 2012. Currently, Lufthansa operates 10 B747-8s.
