Lufthansa, part of the Lufthansa Group, is one of the world’s largest and most prestigious airlines as well as the first European 5 star airline. The airline is widely known for its premium services. Lufthansa has recently invested in introducing and upgrading a wide range of products and services, including our Signature Service in Business Class on our long-haul services.
The Lufthansa Group comprises Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, Lufthansa and SWISS. It is the airline group with the largest network in the world. We offer well-timed, easy transfers from Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as numerous UK and Irish airports via the efficient hubs of Vienna, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich, Geneva and Zurich to over 400 global destinations.
Additionally, March 2018 saw the further expansion of Glasgow for Lufthansa. Lufthansa now operates a new daily flight from Glasgow to Frankfurt flying 7 times a week and has even expanded its Glasgow to Munich service to 5 times a week. All flights will be serviced with the Airbus A320 family.
Announcing the new flight, Andreas Koester, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group said: “This new daily service opens up a huge number of business and leisure opportunities to Scottish passengers. Not only does it provide access to one of Europe’s financial capitals, but it also introduces new options for onward travel to hundreds of worldwide destinations. Passengers are now able to travel to both Frankfurt and Munich, giving them more flexibility and increased connections to numerous destinations in our large, multi-hub network. We have been able to increase Lufthansa’s flight offer at Glasgow from a single weekly service to 12 flights a week in just 6 months. This level of growth is almost unprecedented and underlines the importance of Glasgow Airport within the Lufthansa worldwide network.”
As well as providing Lufthansa’s Scottish passengers with daily access to Germany, the new Frankfurt flight enables Glasgow passengers to access onward connections to the airline’s worldwide network of 209 destinations in 74 countries through its Frankfurt and Munich hubs. In addition to Lufthansa’s flights to its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich, Lufthansa Group’s point-to-point airline, Eurowings, connects Scotland’s biggest city with Düsseldorf, one of its main bases that offers connections to 33 destinations.
With Lufthansa Eurowings departing from Glasgow you can take a short city break to one of Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf or Cologne – all great cities with plenty to see, such as the Neuschwanstein Castle near Munich or the historic Old Town in Cologne. Additionally, if you want more then via our efficient hubs you can connect onto hundreds of destinations throughout Europe and globally – you really can go anywhere!
If it is a short city break you are after – in addition to our main hubs, why not take a nice weekend in Rome, Toulouse, Prague, Budapest or Nuremburg to name a few - all destinations with great connection times via Frankfurt or Munich. With Summer quickly approaching, what a great way to spend a nice long weekend!
So what are you waiting for? There is a whole world out there to see and we want to part of that experience. We look forward to welcoming you on board soon!
