Pullmantur Cruises and Wamos Air made history on Saturday when Wamos landed a Boeing 747 in Rostock, with more than 500 passengers and 19 crew onboard, according to a released statement.

The passengers were transferred to the Monarch for a Northern European cruise, while the plane became the biggest to land at Rostock since U.S. President George W. Bush landed in Rostock on Air Force One in 2006.

The arrival of the Boeing 747, piloted by Commander Alberto Blasco, was witnessed by the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Minister of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Christian Pegel, and the Mayor of Rostock Roland Methling.

That night the Boeing 747 headed back to Madrid full of passengers freshly off a cruise with Pullmantur, which will do seven turnarounds in Rostock this year.
