Lufthansa is to add a fourth daily flight on the Dublin-Frankfurt route from the start of the winter timetable on October 29. The German carrier said the extra flight, operated by Airbus A320, was to meet “customer demand” and said Dublin is a prime route for it.
Andreas Koester, Senior Director Sales Britain, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group, said: “Dublin has continued to shine as a key market for Lufthansa within our network. The demand for our services has continued to grow and we have been able to increase capacity accordingly.
“This, along with the recent introduction Lufthansa’s double daily service between Dublin and Munich, a weekly service from Shannon to Frankfurt and the twice weekly service between Cork and Geneva with Swiss, reaffirms the Lufthansa Group as biggest foreign airline group in Ireland.”
He said that in a market of “ever-increasing competition”, Lufthansa must be “better than anyone else in terms of reliability and innovation at a competitive price.”
He highlighted return fares between Dublin and Frankfurt available from €128 at lufthansa.com and a 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.
