Lufthansa's 6th Airbus A350-900 begins scheduled flights from Munich

From 1st December, Lufthansa will begin flying the A350-900 from Munich to Tokyo.

Just in time for the A350 launch in Tokyo, the newest member of the A350 fleet will be deployed — the Airbus A350-900, registration D-AIXF, started scheduled flights earlier this week. This brings the number of A350-900 aircraft stationed at the Munich hub up to six. As well as Tokyo, they fly to Beijing, Hong Kong, Boston, Delhi and Mumbai.

The A350-900 has space for 293 passengers — 48 in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy and 224 in Economy. The aircraft is the world´s most modern and environmentally friendly long-haul design. It uses 25 percent less kerosene, produces 25 percent fewer emissions and is significantly quieter than other comparable aircraft models at take-off.

In total, Lufthansa has ordered 25 of these state-of-the-art jets.
