The German carrier will operate its daily Frankfurt-Miami route with an A380 aircraft from June 10, replacing the B747 currently serving the US city.

Miami will be the sixth Lufthansa destination to be served by the superjumbo, and the third US city after New York and San Francisco.

The service will use existing flight numbers LH462, departing Frankfurt at 0955, and LH463, leaving Miami at 1610.

The latest A380 route will be made possible by Lufthansa taking delivery of its 8th superjumbo in May. The carrier will be the first airline to operate the A380 into Miami.

The news follows Lufthansa’s announcement earlier today (March 31) that it will increase the number of A380 flights between Frankfurt and Beijing from three-times weekly to daily from April 10.
