    Lufthansa's B747-8 makes India debut

    NEW DELHI: German carrier Lufthansa's "Queen of the Skies" or the B747-8 Intercontinental, made its debut in India today touching down at the airport here from Frankfurt.

    The world's newest aircraft was given a grand water canon salute at Terminal 3 of India Gandhi International Airport. Delhi is the second destination worldwide to receive the B747-8.

    Having deployed the new aircraft on its Frankfurt-Washington route, Lufthansa chose India as the first country in Asia to introduce the 362-seat "Queen of the Skies", which has 92 business class seats with more sleeping surface and other facilities developed after years of research.

    "Being the first airline to introduce this exceptional aircraft to India underlines our commitment to continue our success story here.

    "Making India the Asian launch pad for Lufthansa's new Business Class highlights our endeavour to provide Indian customers with the best Lufthansa products worldwide," Axel Hilgers, South Asia Director for Lufthansa, said.

    AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group, has taken delivery

    AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group, has taken delivery of its third Boeing 747-8 freighter. The 747-8F will be used to replace older aircraft and will be deployed on the carrier’s existing network from its Moscow hub. AirBridgeCargo’s fleet now comprises five 747-400ERFs, three 747-400Fs and three 747-8Fs.

    Skyworld Aviation has arranged the sale of a Saab 340A Cargo on behalf of Siemens Financial Services of Sweden. Serial number 078 was previously operated by Central Connect Airlines and was delivered to its new owner Dec. 28.

    Air Berlin will consider Airbus A321 modifications to operate new routes to Abu Dhabi with its Etihad partner.

    Thai Smile, a subsidiary of Thai Airways, will become the first Airbus A320 commercial operator to benefit from Airbus’ flight hour services tailored support package following a contract signed between Thai Airways International and Airbus. The 15-year contract provides an extensive scope of A320 line replaceable units (LRUs) and spare parts availability, LRUs repairs, logistics services, tools availability, APU and nacelle services.
