Lufthansa launches new website for its Airbus A380 fans

Lufthansa has launched a new website devoted to its upcoming Airbus A380 which has a planned entry into service during the 2010 summer schedule. The airline invites visitors to discover more about its future flagship including details about the current status of Lufthansa’s first Airbus A380.

The site is meant for both passengers and A380 fans who can find out, for example, about the route proving programme, which was conducted exclusively with Lufthansa, as well as about component acceptance tests or the transport of sections across Europe to the final assembly facility in Toulouse.

Over the next few months, Lufthansa will add more documentary material including extensive multimedia, to the website, with the aim of highlighting what makes the Lufthansa A380 so special.

A particular page I liked was where the A380 is super-imposed on to some known landmarks like a soccer pitch and St. Marks square, for size comparison.
