Lufthansa will hire 1,000 flight attendants for its MUC hub as its launches Airbus A380 operations from the Bavarian capital in spring 2018.

“From March 25, our A380s will take off for HKG, LAX and PEK,” Lufthansa Munich hub CEO Wilken Bormann said.

Lufthansa will transfer five of 14 509-seat Airbus A380s from its FRA home base to MUC starting from summer 2018.

This is the first time Lufthansa has based A380s outside Frankfurt.
