The Airbus A380 has been the flagship of Lufthansa since 2010, with a fleet of 14 aircraft. By summer 2020, seven will undoubtedly be stationed in Munich and seven in Frankfurt. The Airbus A380 may be the world’s largest commercial aircraft – 24 meters high and 73 meters long almost. Thanks to a higher proportion of composite materials, the A380 is 15 tons lighter and contains a 50 percent lower noise level than comparable long-haul aircraft. Moreover, the A380 flies in and out of airports, at exactly the same speed of anA320. Most of these characteristics donate to the reduced amount of aircraft noise in airport surrounding areas.

The A380 has 33 percent lower fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions than aircraft of the prior generation correspondingly.
