40 years and one day ago today, Lufthansa
flight LH 421 took off from Boston Logan, offering New England travelers
the first nonstop link between Boston and Frankfurt, Germany. The
then-twice-per- week service today includes three daily flights to
Frankfurt, Munich and beyond—connecting some 5,000 Bostonians per week
with the world. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of flight LH 421, Lufthansa has
announced a special online fare of $421 round-trip for travel between
Boston and top European destinations during the month of April. Seats are
limited and certain rules apply. Visit http://www.lufthansa-usa.com/ for

Lufthansa and local Massport officials gathered at Logan International
Airport this afternoon to celebrate the anniversary with departing
passengers, who received stainless-steel anniversary luggage tags and a
water gun salute from the Logan Fire Department.
“Lufthansa is extremely proud to serve the Boston community,” said Mathias
Friess, Director of Passenger Sales—North America for Lufthansa.
“Together with our loyal customers and strong supporters at Massport,
Lufthansa has planted strong roots here that we know will keep blossoming
for many years to come. We urge Bostonians who have not tried Lufthansa
yet to take advantage of our special $421 anniversary fare, and really
enjoy springtime in Europe,” Friess added.
“Lufthansa has provided 40 years of quality service to Logan International
Airport passengers,” said Thomas J. Kinton, Massport Director of Aviation.
“The airline’s attention to customer service and on time performance is
among the best in the industry. Massport looks forward to an additional 40
years of exceptional non-stop service to Frankfurt, Germany.”
