Aberdeen to Frankfurt

Lufthansa has jumped in to offer an Aberdeen – Frankfurt service this winter with a three times daily service from 30 October.  The cities were not previously linked.  It will be Lufthansa’s sixth UK destination.  Regional subsidiary CityLine will operate the flights using Embraer 190 aircraft seating 100 passengers in Business and Economy Class.  The airline says it will offer Scotland’s oil capital a two-way connection into the carrier's global hub.

Aberdeen is directly 575 miles from Frankfurt and Lufthansa is allocating two hours for the sector with the regional jets currently using remote stands at the German airport.  Long haul aircraft connections can easily be made within the hour as UK passengers are not part of the European Schengen visa area and only have to deal with security.  There is a free electric wagon service but it needs to be booked in advance. www.lufthansa.com
