- Lufthansa Expands US Route Network
Lufthansa says it is expanding its route network to the United States from May 2019, when it will offer its first connections from Frankfurt to Austin.
“This is Lufthansa’s third destination in Texas alongside Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston. Starting in summer 2019, an Airbus A330-300 will be in service five times a week on the route between Frankfurt and Austin. Connections are seamless in Frankfurt for passengers from Nigeria,” the airline said in a statement.
It stated that apart from Tuesday and Thursday, its flight would leave the Lufthansa hub in Frankfurt in the morning and reach Austin in the afternoon after a travel time of 10 hours, adding that the return flight would depart from Texas in the late afternoon and arrive at Frankfurt airport in the morning of the following day.
The airline said, “On board, passengers can expect the usual high level of Lufthansa comfort in 255 seats in business, premium economy and economy class.
“The company is also expanding the Bavarian Lufthansa hub into an Asia hub. The first flight ever of LH792 will take place on 1 June, 2019. A new Airbus A350-900 will be used, which will take off daily from Munich to Thailand in the afternoon.”
