  • Celebration at Incheon Airport on 17th September 2017
  • Traditional Bavarian costumes worn by crew on flight LH719

Lufthansa German Airlines, the largest airline in Europe, held the 10th anniversary celebration of its Incheon-Munich route at Incheon International Airport on 17th September. Lufthansa started the Incheon-Munich service in 2007 and is currently operating the exclusive direct service six times a week. Flight LH719 took off with a total of 297 passengers.

The event was joined by Donald Bunkenburg, Senior Director Sales for Korea and Japan at Lufthansa Group Airlines, the General Manager of Lufthansa Korea together with executives and employees. The Lufthansa crew was dressed in traditional Bavarian costumes which are exlusively worn to selected destinations during Octoberfest. This was further adding to the excitement of the event and attracted the public in the airport premises.

Donald Bunkenburg said, “I am very pleased to be part of this meaningful event that marks the 10th anniversary of our Incheon-Munich service. I would like to express my gratitude to Korean passengers for all their support over the past decade. We will continue to strive to provide convenient services connecting Korea and Europe via our hub Munich, the only five star airport in Europe.”

Lufthansa celebrated the special occasion with German traditional gingerbread hearts given out to all passengers flying on its Incheon-Munich flight on the event day. In addition to the crew in traditional Bavarian costumes, Lufthansa has also been offering special Oktoberfest in-flight meals and amenity kits every September and October when Oktoberfest – the world’s largest folk festival as well as an event representing Munich – takes place.
