Lufthansa’s Airbus A340-600 with special FC Bayern Munich decals takes off

The FC Bayern Munich took off today on a Lufthansa Airbus A340 for an eleven-day USA trip on the “FCB Audi Summer Tour 2016”.

To mark the occasion, the long-haul aircraft with the registration D-AIHK has been covered with a special FC Bayern Munich design.

In addition to the FC Bayern Munich logo, ten players from the club are also pictured on the fuselage: Jérôme Boateng, Robert Lewandowski, Manuel Neuer, Douglas Costa and Arturo Vidal.

Also shown in sporting action: Franck Ribéry, David Alaba, Thomas Müller, Philipp Lahm and Arjen Robben. The Lufthansa Airbus will be flying from Munich to four continents with this design for a year.

Lufthansa has been the official carrier of FC Bayern Munich since 2004. In addition to its long-term cooperation with FC Bayern Munich, the airline also works with the German Football Association (DFB) and supports numerous popular sports.

Moreover, the airline is a national sponsor of the sports foundation Deutsche Sporthilfe, and has been a partner of the German Olympic Sports Committee (DOSB) for many years. This traditionally includes flying the German team to the Olympic Games and, as a partner of the National Paralympic Committee (DBS), to the Paralympics.
