The Airbus A 310-Kaiserslautern began operation on 28 March 1984. The plane has been used in Europe, North Africa as well as the Middle East. The plane was also temporarily used for the route to Khartoum in Sudan. The Airbus, which was lovingly given the nickname "Charly Charly" because of its license number, was among the first 25 planes of this type which Lufthansa began using up to 1990.

The Airbus A 310 Kaiserslautern was unfortunately taken out of operation and on 28 August 1996, its successor, the Airbus A 321 with the number D-AIRN, took over the existing sponsorship. In a celebration, the City of Kaiserslautern was given the new certificate and a model of the plane.
