Lufthansa to launch flights from Düsseldorf to Tokyo

Expansion at Lufthansa’s Düsseldorf hub continues; six flights a week on offer

Lufthansa has announced that it will soon start offering long-haul flights to Asia from Düsseldorf. From 1 June 2012, the airline will fly the first nonstop flight between North Rhine-Westphalia and Tokyo. The new route will be offered six times a week with an Airbus A340-300 and represents another step in the airline expanding its Düsseldorf hub.
“The integration of Tokyo will help to develop and strengthen our route network at Lufthansa’s Düsseldorf hub and offer passengers connecting flights to over 50 direct destinations in Germany and Europe,” Oliver Wagner, the airline’s senior VP for direct services, commented. Düsseldorf Mayor Dirk Elbers said that “a direct connection between Düsseldorf and Tokyo is the culmination of many years of hard work that we have invested in consolidating and expanding Düsseldorf as a hub of Japanese trade and industry.”
