Lufthansa increases to Saudi Arabia

For this coming winter’s programme Lufthansa is launching a new service from Munich to Jeddah via Riyadh.  The route will be flown by an Airbus A340.  Riyadh, the capital and largest city in Saudi Arabia, is currently served with a Boeing 737-800 operated on behalf of Lufthansa by the Swiss business jet operator PrivatAir.

In the winter timetable, Riyadh and Jeddah will be served thrice weekly from Munich, supplementing the daily flights already operated from Frankfurt. 

Jeddah is Saudi Arabia’s main port and has a population of 3m.  The city is considered to be the principal gateway to Mecca and has many historic sights to offer.  Jeddah is also an important industrial centre on the Red Sea. www.lufthansa.com
