Lufthansa is expanding its services to the United Kingdom and is laying on flights to Aberdeen, its sixth UK destination in the winter schedules 2011/12. Starting on 30 October 2011, the airline will for the first time be operating thrice-daily on the route from Frankfurt, linking the major port on the east coast of Scotland with the Frankfurt hub and from there into Lufthansa’s global network. The Lufthansa CityLine regional subsidiary will operate the flights with its modern Embraer 190 aircraft, seating 100 passengers in Business and Economy Class.
Aberdeen, near the offshore North Sea drilling rigs, is a centre of the oil industry. “With this new connection to the Scottish port and ‘Europe’s oil capital’, we are incorporating a new Oil & Energy destination in the array of cities we serve, which are highly important in the energy industry,” noted Kay Kratky, member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board. “The Scottish city is also an attractive destination for leisure travellers and Scotland fans. With Aberdeen, we are additionally expanding our services between Germany and Great Britain.“ Lufthansa will then be operating a total of 434 flights, weekly, to London-Heathrow, London- City, Birmingham and Manchester as well as the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
The modern port of Aberdeen lies on the edge of the Scottish highlands, a magnet for holidaymakers and nature lovers. Among its many other attractions is the “Malt Whisky Trail“, famous Scottish castles and numerous, renowned golf courses.
