Lufthansa to fly to two new destinations

The German airline will begin two new services from Munich to Newcastle in the UK and Tallinn in Estonia.

Lufthansa will be flying to two new European destinations this winter.

Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, will be offered from Munich for the first time, starting on November 4, 2019.

Newcastle in northeastern England will follow on February 3, 2020. This is the first Newcastle route for Lufthansa, opening its seventh destination in the UK.

Both new destinations will be served by an Airbus A319.

“With the new destinations, we are continuously expanding our route network within Europe. We are offering our customers two additional interesting destinations for business travellers that also offer tourist highlights,” says Wilken Bormann, CEO of Hub Munich.

The new flights open up 140 destinations in 46 countries through the Munich hub.

Estonia’s capital Tallinn features a historic centre that has been a UNESCO cultural heritage site since 1997. However, the city is also the economically strongest city in Estonia and is home to the largest banking sector in the Baltic states.

Lufthansa will be flying to Estonia’s capital every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

Newcastle upon Tyne is a significant industrial and transportation centre in northeastern England and is also a starting point for visits to a variety of the UK’s national parks and for round trips through northern England.

Passengers will be able to reach the English city non-stop from Munich every day but Saturday.
