From now on, Lufthansa is including the connection to São Paulo in its Munich flight schedule again.
The airline is planning three weekly connections with the Airbus A350-900 to the largest city in Brazil. Flight number LH504 takes off in Munich on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:30pm and arrives in São Paulo at 6:55am, the following day.
The return flight leaves the Brazilian metropolis at 6pm local time and arrives in Munich at 9:35, the next morning. Lufthansa Group now offers a total of 17 weekly connections from Europe to São Paulo.
“We are pleased to connect São Paulo with our premium hub in Munich again,” says Markus Binkert, CCO Hub Munich and senior vice president Marketing.
“For the first time ever, Lufthansa is using the Airbus A350-900 on flights to South America – the most modern and environmental friendly long-haul aircraft in the world.”
São Paulo is the most important economic, financial and cultural centre of Brazil and the largest industrial conurbation in Latin America.
At least 21 million people live in the Grande São Paulo metropolitan area, making São Paulo one of the largest cities in the world.
Lufthansa is serving the new destination with an Airbus A350-900, the world’s most modern and sustainable long-haul aircraft.
Its kerosene consumption averages 2.9 liters per passenger per 100 kilometers of flight, which is 25 per cent less than comparable aircraft types.
As a result, the A350-900 produces a quarter less greenhouse gas. The Rolls-Royce XWB engines are among the most efficient engines for large passenger aircraft currently in operation.
Together with the weight savings, they result in a noise footprint reduction of 50 per cent. At the same time, a modern fleet also means a significant increase in comfort for passengers.
With the introduction of the Lufthansa A350-900, it is possible for the first time to provide biorhythm support with the right light at the right time.
Another special feature of the A350-900, is that due to the special structural design, cabin pressure remains comfortable during cruising, so that passengers arrive better rested.
