Lufthansa is launching a new direct flight from Austin, Texas, to Frankfurt - the airline’s main base.
Commencing on May 3rd next year, the German flag-carrier will offer five weekly flights from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to Frankfurt Airport.
With this new flight offering, Austin will become the German carrier’s third gateway in Texas, following daily service from Dallas and Houston, respectively, to Lufthansa’s Frankfurt hub.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of nonstop service between Austin, Texas, and our Frankfurt hub in May of next year, which will offer Austin area residents a world of travel opportunities to more than 200 destinations in 100 countries from our European base,” said Matt Strong, Lufthansa group general manager sales for the south-central region of the USA.
“Those living in Texas’ state capital will now be able to experience Lufthansa’s outstanding service and five-star premium product on long-haul travel routes.”
Lufthansa will operate the Airbus A330-300 in a three-class cabin configuration offering customers business class, premium economy, and economy class.
Flights will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Optimally timed, flight LH469 will depart Austin at 16:00 and arrive at 09:05 in Frankfurt on the following day, offering passengers hundreds of connections to Europe, as well as Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.
