Lufthansa flying again between MUC & GRU

Wed Dec 04, 2019 11:54 pm

Four years after suspending the Munich - Sao Paulo route (used to operate daily with the A346), Lufthansa reinstated the route, this time around with the A350, 3x a week. First flight operated yesterday.

Great news, 3 weekly is an interesting number but Lufthansa is conservative. If the traffic is there, they will up the number of flights accordingly. A350 seems like the perfect equipment for the route, as I imagine the cost savings the A340 will be tremendous.

Keep in mind they serve GRU daily from FRA, 10x weekly overall should be good enough to start with.

Brazil's economy is beginning to show signs of life again, at least in the 3rd Q, so hopefully this time around the route sticks around.
