National Team Travel In Style to South Africa

The national team will arrive in South Africa for the 2010 World Cup in style as they will be part of Lufthansa’s first long haul flight for their new A380.

The special flight operated by Lufthansa’s new flagship on Sunday, 6 June, with flight number LH2010 on the Frankfurt-Johannesburg route, leaves Frankfurt Airport at 20.30 hours and will arrive in Johannesburg at 8.15 hours local time.

In addition to the team, DFB trainers and assistants, around 150 soccer fans will also be making the journey on the A380.

The fans will be attending the send-off for the team in the Business Lounge at the flight departure gate and taking part in a talk session prior to the flight with Team Manager Oliver Bierhoff, Football Association General Secretary Wolfgang Niersbach and the players. They will also be presented with an exclusive Lufthansa World Cup fan kit.

Captain Jürgen Raps will be in charge of the special flight on the flight deck. Supporting him in the cockpit are Captain Raimund Müller and Captain Werner Knorr. The cabin crew consists of two pursers and 19 flight attendants.

“We are thrilled to be the first guests on board Lufthansa’s biggest and most modern airliner and hope after a relaxed flight to realise our sporting ambitions at the World Cup in South Africa,” said Team Manager Oliver Bierhoff.

There is no better way to debut Lufthansa’s first A380, named the “Frankfurt am Main”, than for it to carry a nation’s hopes and dreams to the biggest sporting event in the world. Can they top it off by bringing back the World Cup trophy on the return flight?
