Before the first of Lufthansa’s A380s flies the German team to Johannesburg for the Football World Cup on Sunday, 6 June 2010, Lufthansa pilots will carry out numerous flights with the brand new flagship in the Lufthansa fleet.

 After about a month’s training in the A380 simulator, the flights - with no passengers on board - are required as part of the qualifications for pilots to acquire a licence to fly this aircraft type. In addition to take-offs and landings, the flight tuition includes line training on scheduled routes to prepare the pilots to operate scheduled services for the airline with the A380.

Provided the weather conditions are good and allow the training flights to go ahead, the A380, named Frankfurt am Main, will be seen at the following airports:

Monday, 31 May: Full-day flight training at Karlsruhe Airport.

Tuesday, 1 June: Full-day flight training at Leipzig Airport.

Wednesday, 2 June: Line training on the Frankfurt – Stuttgart – Zürich – Vienna – Dresden – Linz – Munich – Frankfurt routes.

Thursday, 3 June: Line training on the Frankfurt – Berlin-Tegel – Hanover – Hamburg – Bremen – Dusseldorf – Cologne/Bonn – Frankfurt routes.

The first Airbus A380 is scheduled for delivery to Lufthansa on 19 May 2010.
