Namasté! Yashas welcomes guests aboard

9-year-old Yashas Dassani, winner of Lufthansa's worldwide 'Your Announcement' contest, had a delightful surprise waiting for him at Frankfurt airport. Later he created history on board LH756 from Frankfurt to Mumbai by making the first live ‘announcement by a kid’. Listen to his charming announcement!

In January 2016, Lufthansa launched a first-of-its-kind global kids contest for the best onboard announcement. The winner would win a flight to any destination in Europe accompanied by two adults with the first ever inflight announcement by a kid.
Fantastic entries were received by children from over 9 countries. The top 15 were put out for public polling – 8-year-old Yashas from Mumbai got the maximum votes.

In what is sure to be a big surprise, a team has made its way to Mumbai to tell Yashas the brilliant news:
