German airline Lufthansa has opened a first-class lounge for pets at Frankfurt Airport.Those on cheap flights to Australia or some other far flung destination who may be stopping off in the European city could now catch a glimpse of every kind of pet, from dogs to horses and wild animals relaxing in luxury ahead of their flight.

General manager at Lufthansa Kai Peters said: “Our animal lounge provides individual care, professional expertise and an environment designed to ensure ultimate comfort for 14,000 household pets and 1,500 horses and wild animals annually.”

The lounge is aimed at pets that are experiencing an airport stopover of more than around two hours.

Lufthansa has recently taken a delivery of its second Airbus A380 this year, with the new plane being sent to Hamburg. Manufacturer Airbus has delivered some ten new planes this year so far, with Singapore Airlines taking another yesterday (July 19th).
