The first Lufthansa Airbus A350-900 landed at its home airport of Munich airport on December 21. The airline will base ten A350-900s at its Bavarian hub. Captain Martin Hoell had the honour of flying the A350-900 “home” to Munich commented: “The A350-900 is the most modern plane with the most up-to-date technical features a commercial pilot can fly.” For the cabin crew who brought the A350-900 to Munich, the event was also “a milestone that makes us very proud”, said flight attendant Annika Wittmann.
Flight LH9921 from Toulouse landed on Munich’s southern runway, and was greeted by the fire brigade spraying a water arch as a welcome.
There was a Lufthansa Christmas angel on board, Lufthansa employee Anja Oskoui, who had a special something in her suitcase. She gave a €10,000 cheque to a Munich orphanage from help alliance, Lufthansa’s non-profit employee organisation.
The help alliance organisation has been around for more than 17 years. It is committed to ensuring that more people on our planet can decide for themselves how to live their lives. The result of the 13 Lufthansa-founded associations: More than 140 successfully supported aid projects, more than ten million euros in donations – in addition to emergency aid provided in the event of various natural disasters.
