Lufthansa launches Aberdeen-Frankfurt service

Lufthansa has announced it will start flights between Aberdeen and Frankfurt this autumn. The route will operate three times a day from 30 October using a 100-seat Embraer E190 in two-class configuration. “This new service from Europe’s oil and energy capital is a direct response to business traveller demand and will strengthen Lufthansa’s position in the world’s key oil and energy markets where we serve almost 80 destinations in EMEA, Asia and the Americas”, said Marianne Sammann, general manager UK and Ireland at Lufthansa. “We have ensured that the timetable provides excellent connections to both our European and world-wide network from our Frankfurt hub.” Derek Provan, managing director at Aberdeen Airport said he hoped the announcement would coincide with the airport’s expansion. “The announcement yet again shows how positive the future is looking,” he said. “The runway extension project was a key catalyst in Lufthansa making their decision and we hope that the works can encourage many more new airlines to come on-board in future.”
