Furthermore, as of last year, Lufthansa set to increase the number of Airbus A380 aircraft based in Munich. The two additional planes will be deployed to Boston (BOS) and San Francisco (SFO) this summer.

Additionally, the airline’s A380 fleet at Munich International Airport (MUC) is expected to increase from five to seven aircraft for this year’s summer season.

The A380 is currently deployed on flights from Munich to Los Angeles, Shanghai, and Beijing. With BOS and SFO, the airline’s flagship service from Munich will climb to five destinations.
