Lufthansa Establishes New Air Route Between Shannon And Frankfurt
German airline Lufthansa operated its first scheduled flight out of Shannon airport last Saturday (29 April), marking the initiation of a new route to Frankfurt which will run weekly until the end of October.
As reported by The Galway Examiner, the route will provide travellers with one-stop connectivity to approximately 200 destinations worldwide. According to Lufthansa's UK Senior Sales Director, Andreas Köster, "The service is already proving to be an attractive travel option for people traveling to Ireland from around the Lufthansa global network."
Köster went on the say that the company also expects it to be a popular outbound service due to the fact that "Frankfurt has a lot to offer as a tourism destination and also offers a smooth connection between [the] Frankfurt hub and some major intercontinental destinations such as Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Sao Paulo or Singapore."
