Domestic routes in winter to fly “every hour on the hour”
Lufthansa is introducing hourly flights on three of its domestic German trunk routes this winter, between Frankfurt and Hamburg, Munich and Berlin. On weekdays between 06.00 and 20.00, for example, flights from Hamburg to Frankfurt will depart every hour on the hour (e.g., at 10.00, 11.00, 12.00, etc.). In the mornings and evenings, some twice-hourly services will also be operated. Departure times for flights to and from Berlin will always be at 45 minutes past the hour.
Lufthansa says that the customer response to its expanded schedule from Berlin has been “very positive” and a further three new tourist destinations are being added this winter, to, Funchal in Madeira and Innsbruck. Lufthansa has already welcomed more than 600,000 additional passengers aboard its new flights from Berlin. The airline is also launching direct flights from Düsseldorf to Tel Aviv, Funchal and Marrakech and from Munich to Cape Town and Rotterdam.
Lufthansa is expanding its long-haul services from its Munich hub and from 16 May 2013, for the first time, it will offer a non-stop flight from Munich to Vancouver. The new route will be served daily with an Airbus A330 and will complement the airline’s daily Frankfurt-Vancouver flights.
