Lufthansa A380 begins scheduled operations at Changi Airport

Singapore Changi Airport today welcomes the commencement of Lufthansa’s A380 operations from Singapore to Frankfurt, the newest addition to Changi’s growing list of A380-connected destinations. With a total of 188 weekly A380 flights to nine major cities – Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Paris, Sydney, Tokyo and Zurich – Changi Airport is the world’s busiest multi-carrier A380 hub.

Mr Yam Kum Weng, Changi Airport Group’s Executive Vice President, Air Hub Development, said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Lufthansa’s A380 operations to Changi Airport. Just like Lufthansa’s launch of Changi’s inaugural service to Munich in 2008, this is another important milestone for us. The additional capacity that the new A380 service brings to the Singapore-Germany route will not only meet the strong travel demand but also help to stimulate traffic between the two markets.”

For the 12 months ended August 2011, 348,000 passengers travelled between Singapore and Germany, an increase of 18.3% over the previous corresponding period. At the same time, there were 2.37 million passengers who travelled between Singapore and Europe, a growth of 12.1%.
