Lufthansa increases Glasgow – Munich service

Lufthansa has announced plans to expand flights between Glasgow and Munich with four flights a week during the winter following the success of the airline’s seasonal service.

In addition to providing Lufthansa’s Scottish passengers with year round access to southern Germany through the Bavarian capital, the additional flights will also enhance options for those wanting to travel on to many of the airlines worldwide destinations through their Munich hub which has a minimum onward connecting time of just 30 minutes.

The service will operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 30th October reducing to twice weekly (Wednesday and Friday) over the Christmas holiday period using aircraft from the Airbus 320 family.

Announcing the extension of the service Andreas Koester, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group said: “We have seen a continual increase in demand on our Glasgow to Munich summer service since it was introduced as a seasonal service in May 2015. Developing the route into a year round service is the obvious next step. It reinforces our commitment to meet the expectations of our Scottish passengers and also confirms the continuing importance of Glasgow Airport within the Lufthansa worldwide network.”

Francois Bourienne, commercial director at Glasgow Airport, said: “Lufthansa is one of the world’s largest airlines with an enviable route network spanning 73 countries. In addition to making it easier for tourists from one of our biggest international markets to visit Glasgow, the expansion of this route will play an important role in strengthening Scotland’s connectivity by providing passengers with access to major markets worldwide through Lufthansa’s Munich hub.”

Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “This announcement by Lufthansa to operate a year-round service from Munich to Glasgow is fantastic news. Germany is a hugely important international tourist market for Glasgow contributing around £16 million to the city’s economy each year.

“This increased connectivity with Lufthansa through the key hub of Munich will allow us to further grow leisure and business tourism to Glasgow while also strengthening the city’s credentials as gateway to Scotland.”

The new flights are available for booking through lufthansa.com with return fares starting from £87 for Lufthansa’s high quality product that provides all passengers with their seat, hold & cabin baggage allowances, in flight food & drink, the ability to check-in on line, from their mobile phone or at the airport and all taxes and charges for one all inclusive fare.
