New flights from UK as Lufthansa launches summer schedule

Lufthansa is boosting UK services with the introduction of the summer timetable with a double-digit increase in capacity on the Aberdeen to Frankfurt route and the start of two new services to Glasgow and Cardiff.

The increase in capacity between Aberdeen and Frankfurt is the result of introducing the larger B737-500 aircraft with 114 seats to replace the 70 seat CR7 which has been operating the route.

Lufthansa’s flight schedule provides excellent onward connections to many popular worldwide destinations including Houston, Beijing and Singapore – all operated with the flagship A380 aircraft; Hong Kong and Washington – operated by the Boeing 747-8, the latest addition to the Lufthansa fleet which has rapidly become a favourite among Lufthansa passengers.

Inbound tourism to the UK will be boosted by the introduction of two new services from Düsseldorf.

The all year round service to Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland renowned for its vibrant arts scene, its architecture and design and the spectacular scenery in the nearby Scottish Highlands starts on April 8th.

A seasonal service to Cardiff will operate every Saturday between May 4th and October 5th providing an ideal starting point for European tourists taking holidays on the coast or in the Welsh mountains

Lufthansa is expanding its long-haul services by introducing a new route from Munich to Vancouver on the west coast of Canada to complement its existing service from Frankfurt.

From May 16th 2013, the new route to the largest city in British Columbia will be served daily with an Airbus A330.

Vancouver is a major centre for trade and commerce. It also has Canada’s largest seaport and is home to the headquarters of numerous forestry and mining companies.

Many IT companies have settled in the surrounding region.

In addition, Vancouver is a popular tourist and holiday destination.

The Lufthansa Group continues to invest in the modernisation of its fleet with 236 of the latest generation aircraft currently on order in its fleet renewal programme of around €23 billion.
