Lufthansa is preparing to launch new flights
between Munich and Riyadh. From 26 April 2010, the Saudi Arabian
capital will be served thrice weekly in addition to the daily
flight already operated by Lufthansa from Frankfurt. The route
will be flown by a Boeing 737, which is currently operated on
behalf of Lufthansa by the Swiss business jet operator PrivatAir.
This aircraft is fitted with 24 seats in Business Class and 84
seats in Economy Class.
On board the PrivatAir aircraft, passengers can enjoy all the benefits of
Lufthansa’s longhaul product. In Business Class, these include an
inflight entertainment system with the latest films and topical
programmes, Star Chef menus that change every two months as well
as excellent amenities enabling passengers to continue working
while on board. When extended, the lie-flat seats provide an
almost horizontal surface two metres in length. Economy Class
passengers can also look forward to a high level of comfort. Due
to the lower number of seats, passengers are guaranteed a very
personalised service. All the seats are also fitted with an
individual in-seat video screen und feature ergonomically designed
backrests and additional legroom.
“Thanks to the spacious cabin interior of
the Boeing 737-800, passengers travel in an extremely calm and
relaxed atmosphere. Our customers can therefore look forward to an
exceptionally high level of comfort,” said Thomas Klühr, Group
Representative and Head of Hub Management Munich.
