Today, Lufthansa announced that they have reintroduced service from Munich to São Paulo, Brazil. The route will be operated three times weekly on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays with an Airbus A350-900. The new flight (LH504) will depart Munich at 10:30PM and arrive São Paulo at 6:55AM the next morning. The return flight departs São Paulo at 6:00PM (local time) and arrives in Munich at 9:35AM the next morning. With the new service, the Lufthansa Group now offers 17 weekly connections from Europe to Brazil’s largest city. In Friday’s announcement, Lufthansa’s CCO Hub Munich & SVP Marketing, Markus Binkert said,
“We are pleased to connect São Paulo with our premium hub in Munich again. For the first time ever, Lufthansa is using the Airbus A350-900 on flights to South America – the most modern and environmentally friendly long-haul aircraft in the world.”
São Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world, with over 21M residents in the greater metropolitan area, and is also Brazil’s most important financial, cultural and industrial center. Lufthansa is particularly proud to operate the route with the sustainable Airbus A350-900, which consumes only 2.9L of fuel per passenger for every 100 kilometers of flight, about 25% less than other aircraft in its class. The aircraft uses efficient Rolls-Royce XWB engines, which provide both weight savings and a 50% noise footprint reduction.
