Lufthansa’s new microsite is a comprehensive source of information for travelers and aviation buffs interested in the Airbus A380, the future flagship of the airline’s fleet. Starting today, visitors to lufthansa.com/a380 can access the most current details about the status of Lufthansa’s first Airbus A380 and follow the route-proving program in New York, Chicago and Washington D.C., which was conducted exclusively with Lufthansa in March 2007. Furthermore, they can learn about component acceptance tests and the transport of the aircraft’s sections across Europe for final assembly in Toulouse.
Over the next few months, Lufthansa will continue to add more documentary material to the new microsite, illustrating Lufthansa’s A380 innovations. In addition to articles, the Web site will include numerous images, games, video clips and other downloadable material. Details and further site functions will be added until the planned entry of the aircraft into service during the 2010 summer schedule. Visitors to the Web site will also find A380 items available through the Lufthansa WorldShop as well as an integrated media section with the latest press releases, an image database and other services.
