Lufthansa to launch new Denver route in 2016

Lufthansa and Denver International Airport has announced non-stop service between Denver, Colorado, and Munich, Germany.

The service begins on May 11th, 2016 and will be operated by an Airbus A330-300 five times per week.

The new eastbound LH 481 service will operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, departing Denver at 16:05 and arriving in Munich the following morning.

The corresponding westbound LH 480 service will also operate on Tuesdays, Wednesday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, departing from Lufthansa’s Munich hub at 11:45 and arriving in Denver at 14:30 after a ten hour, 45 minute flight.

“Denver has been an important U.S. gateway for Lufthansa since 2001.


“Nearly three million travellers have flown Lufthansa to and from the Mile High City, and the return of direct flights to Munich displays just how important the Denver market is to our airline,” said Juergen Siebenrock, vice president The Americas at Lufthansa German Airlines.

“With all classes now offering the newest on-board product, our passengers traveling to Munich will experience the highest level of quality, as well as the premium customer service, that Lufthansa is known for.”

The Denver-Munich flight, which has a capacity of 236 seats, represents the first time that the A330-300 aircraft has been scheduled for regular service at DEN.
