Two days before the start of the Munich Oktoberfest, the traditional costume crews of the German airline take off again.

The flight attendants are taking off from Munich today for Rio de Janeiro and San Diego at the same time. Boston and New York will follow on September 26th. The special thing about this year: After five years, the Lufthansa cabin crew are presenting themselves in a new costume, which was also produced sustainably. Wearing traditional costumes at the Oktoberfest has also been a tradition for many years on numerous European and German routes from Munich. During the Oktoberfest, of course, the Lufthansa employees in passenger care in Terminal 2 also welcome the passengers in traditional costume. Instead of the classic Lufthansa uniform, the women wear dirndls and the men wear traditional suits.

The Oktoberfest season also begins above the clouds today on more than 800 long-haul flights to 33 destinations from Frankfurt and Munich. Lufthansa is serving Bavarian specialties in First and Business Class until October 3rd. In addition, guests receive roasted almonds, Oktoberfest chocolates and gingerbread hearts. In the lounges in Terminal 2 and in the satellite building, meat loaf, pretzels and white sausages are traditionally served.

“We are delighted that we are continuing the 16-year history of traditional costume flights and are thus also able to welcome visitors to the Oktoberfest on the ground and on board with Bavarian flair,” says Stefan Kreuzpaintner, CCO Lufthansa Airlines. "In the coming weeks, Munich Airport will once again present itself as an attractive gateway to the Oktoberfest, and that includes Lufthansa's traditional costume crews," adds Jost Lammers, CEO of Flughafen München GmbH.
