Lufthansa expands Glasgow services to Germany
Lufthansa has announced substantial expansion of flights between Glasgow and Germany, with a new daily flight to Frankfurt and an increase in its services to Munich.
The new Frankfurt route will launch in March 2018, while the Munich service will increase to five flights per week.
Lufthansa started flying from Glasgow with a weekly, summer-only service to Munich in May 2015. This was increased to four flights a week on 30 October 2017, with flights operating on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. This will increase to five flights per week from March 2018, when a Saturday service will be added.
The new daily, year-round, service between Glasgow and Frankfurt will launch on 26 March 2018. All flights will operate next summer with aircraft from the Airbus 320 family.
Announcing the new flights Andreas Koester, senior director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group, said: “The introduction of these services will result in a massive increase in Lufthansa’s flight offer at Glasgow – a level of growth which is unprecedented in recent years. To go from a single weekly service to 12 flights a week in 12 months is remarkable.
“It reinforces our commitment to meet the expectations of our Scottish passengers and also confirms the continuing importance of Glasgow Airport within the Lufthansa worldwide network.”
In addition to providing Lufthansa’s Scottish passengers with year-round access to Germany, the additional flights will also enable Glasgow passengers to access onward connections to the airline’s worldwide network to 193 destinations in 75 countries through its modern Frankfurt and Munich hubs.
