Houston Lands Largest Passenger Aircraft in the World; Historic Flight is a First for Texas 

July 30, 2012

George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is welcoming the largest passenger aircraft in the world to Texas. The Lufthansa A380 will make its first arrival at Intercontinental on Wednesday, August 1, and is inviting Houston to the “A380 Houston Party” to celebrate from noon – 2 p.m. at FM 1960, just east of Farrell Road, Houston, 77066.

Guests will have an unbeatable view of the A380 landing on the runway at IAH. Get your cameras ready, because the “A380 Houston Party” is in a gated area, not regularly open to the public and it is very close to the runway. Planespotters should be able to get great photos.

While guests are waiting for the A380 to arrive, Intercontinental has plenty of entertainment planned, including chances to win several prizes including two trips to Germany on the A380 – all guests have to do is participate in a couple of contests.

For the grand prize contests, guests will need to register and show proof of I.D. at the registration table when arriving to the “A380 Houston Party.” To be eligible for the grand prize, contestants must be 18 years or older and cannot be City of Houston employees. Lucky participants, chosen at random, will either have to yodel their way to Germany or pack their suitcases the best.

Two other contests include a Lederhosen costume contest and a Foursquare Check-in contest. For more information on how to register for the contests and eligibility, visit www.fly2houston.com/A380contests.

What’s a party without food and music? The “A380 Houston Party” will have free food: sandwiches, chips, ice cream cups, popsicles, drinks and more; a free gift for each guest and entertainment from the Das Ist Lustig Band.
