In a busy month for Dublin Airport, officials have welcomed an announcement from Lufthansa that the airline will almost double services on its Dublin – Munich route next summer. The carrier, currently with a year-round daily service, will fly 13 times a week from the end of March.
Andreas Köster, senior sales director for the UK, Ireland and Iceland, said: “This further increase shows the importance of the Irish market within the Lufthansa worldwide network. Having started as a seasonal summer-only service with three flights a week in 2008, we have continued to expand the service significantly to meet the demands of our Irish customers.
“As well as providing more frequent access to southern Germany through the Bavarian capital, the twice-daily service will further enhance the travel options of our Irish passengers by increasing the potential for onward travel to many of Lufthansa’s worldwide destinations.
Köster added that in addition to the Munich hub, which has a minimum onward connecting time of just 30min, the Lufthansa Group also offers existing connections from Dublin with a three-times-daily service to the Frankfurt hub operated by Lufthansa.
“Then there are 12 flights a week with SWISS to the Zurich hub and Geneva. In addition, our low-cost airline, Eurowings, also operates eight flights a week to Cologne and Dusseldorf.” (See also Qatar joins Dublin line-up this issue).
