With the opening of services from Bristol to Frankfurt last week virtually all the former Flybe routes have now been taken up.
The route provides business travellers with increased opportunity to trade in one of the world’s leading financial centres and opens the door for multiple onward connections for both business and leisure travellers.
“We are extremely pleased to announce that Lufthansa will be operating up to four weekly flights from Bristol Airport this summer, and up to seven weekly flights starting in September. We look forward to connecting our passengers in Southwest England with our main Lufthansa hub in Germany. The Frankfurt service demonstrates Lufthansa’s commitment to the UK market and will provide increased connectivity to long-haul destinations such as Tokyo, Cape Town and Singapore,” said Heinrich Lange, who has newly taken over as the Lufthansa Group Senior Director Sales for Northern Europe.
Kathryn Davis, Director of Tourism, Visit West, said: “We are delighted that Lufthansa will be commencing their Frankfurt route to Bristol Airport, providing vital connections for our future German visitors and those connecting through this vital European hub from other destinations. Germany is one of our most important visitor markets, so this connectivity is a critical part in supporting the return of the international leisure visitors when appropriate and to enable families and friends to reconnect, as well as supporting business passengers.”
