Lufthansa has further expanded connections between Glasgow and Germany, with a new daily flight to Frankfurt, starting today. 

The airline already flies from Glasgow to Munich five times per week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Lufthansa serves Glasgow with Airbus A320s. Andreas Koester, senior director sales UK, Ireland and Iceland, Lufthansa Group, said: “This new daily service opens up a huge number of business and leisure opportunities to Scottish passengers. Passengers are now able to travel to both Frankfurt and Munich, giving them more flexibility and increased connections to numerous destinations in our large, multi-hub network.

“We have been able to increase Lufthansa’s flight offer at Glasgow from a single weekly service to 12 flights a week in just six months. This level of growth is almost unprecedented and underlines the importance of Glasgow airport within the Lufthansa worldwide network.”

Glasgow Chamber of Commerce chief executive Stuart Patrick said: “We warmly welcome the addition of this service by Lufthansa, having identified Germany as a highly important target for overseas trade and for attracting inward investment to Glasgow.

"Frankfurt is a principal German city, with an airport that is one of the top three hubs on the European mainland, giving access to markets worldwide. It will be a source of opportunities for our business community as they travel the globe in sectors such as food and drink, engineering and financial services.”
