Lufthansa launches three long-haul leisure destinations in a week

Even at Lufthansa, it doesn’t happen very often that three new long-haul destinations from Frankfurt are added to the network in a single week.

Now, Lufthansa passengers have the opportunity to fly directly, with Europe’s biggest airline, from Frankfurt to the dream destinations of Cancun, Mexico, Malé (in the Maldives) and Mauritius.

The first flight kicked off when flight LH 514 departed Frankfurt for Cancun.

This was followed with flight LH 704 to Malé, with the week was rounded off with flight LH 708 to Mauritius.

Lufthansa has tailor-made these flights to suit private travellers, which has paid off: the inaugural flights were very well booked and the advance bookings for the upcoming holiday weeks look promising.


Cancun, Malé and Mauritius are just three of several new holiday destinations Lufthansa has added to its network in the last few months, with Tampa, Florida and Nairobi, Kenya being added in late September and late October respectively.

In March 2016, flights to Panama City, Panama will begin.

The aircraft used for these flights – equipped with a FlyNet broadband connection – is the Airbus A340-300, with seats offered in three different travel classes.

Out of a total of 298 seats, 18 are in Business Class, 19 in Premium Economy and 261 in Economy Class.
