German airline Lufthansa has announced it will start operating the world’s largest commercial aircraft the Airbus A380 to Mumbai starting next summer.

Wolfgang Will, Director South Asia, said the airline plans to start flying between Mumbai and Frankfurt with the A380 from July-August 2015. This is despite the Mumbai airport, unlike the one in Delhi, having just one position/slot to land the A380.

The airline had earlier this week launched the A380 flights between Frankfurt and Delhi. The launch of the A380 flight to Delhi will see the airline offering 140 more seats a day from what was offered earlier. Similarly, the launch of the A380 to Mumbai will see the airline offering 170 more seats a day.

Will also announced that Lufthansa will offer ‘premium/economy’ seating to passengers flying between Bangalore and Frankfurt from November 22 this year. Lufthansa had launched the ‘premium/economy’ class (in between economy and business) globally this year.
