Featuring Rolls-Royce engineering and state-of-the-art design, Lufthansa’s new long-haul aircraft arrived at Vancouver International Airport Tuesday. Celebrating hashtag YVRAirbusDay, it also marked the start of daily passenger service between Vancouver (YVR) and Munich, Germany (MUC) during the airline’s summer schedule.

“Economy class is particularly roomy and comfortable and features the most recent technology,” according to the website. “On average, the new plane consumes only 2.9 litres of kerosene per passenger per hundred kilometres—roughly one quarter of that consumed by comparable aircraft.”

Tuesday also marked the return of British Airway’s A380 which is the world’s largest passenger aircraft. The double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet will also be operating daily between YVR and London Heathrow (LHR) until Sept. 30.
