First “Fanhansa” flight takes off

An aircraft in football livery will fly from Munich to Hamburg and London today.

The first aircraft with the new “Fanhansa” livery will taxi out to the runway on schedule at 11.20 this morning. The Airbus A321-200, named after the town of Göttingen in Lower Saxony, is flying from Munich to Hamburg on flight number LH2066. Overnight the “Delta Golf” – from its registration number D-AIDG – was embellished with special foil by five Lufthansa Technik employees in 40 hours of work. The Fanhansa lettering on this Airbus medium-haul aircraft is 7.65 meters long.

Lufthansa is celebrating a special premiere with Fanhansa. For the first time since beginning flight operations nearly 60 years ago, part of the fleet is to change the name on the aircraft fuselage. To mark the football World Cup, a total of eight Lufthansa aircraft will swap their familiar livery for the new Fanhansa logo. The Airbus A321-200 will be followed by two additional short-haul aircraft and a total of five long-haul aircraft with the Fanhansa lettering, including the Boeing 747-8, the world’s longest civilian aircraft.
