Lufthansa has today announced that it will be increasing the number of weekly departures to Frankfurt from Liverpool John Lennon Airport at the start of Summer 2023, following the success of the service which started in May this year.
Lufthansa will increase frequency to six weekly departures, operating every day except Saturday. It means the airline’s capacity from Liverpool next summer will increase by 50% compared to Summer 2022.
It is almost 12 months to the day that Lufthansa first announced that they would commence operations from Liverpool, with flights subsequently starting earlier this year on 2 May. The route connects Liverpool with the world, enabling travellers from across the region to fly to a host of global destinations via Lufthansa’s seamless Frankfurt hub, with the added advantage of all the passenger benefits of flying from Liverpool.
This increased frequency means that Liverpool will connect with even more destinations, along with offering more departure choices for existing connections over Frankfurt including to destinations such as Dubai, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and more.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport CEO John Irving commented, ”This is tremendous news not just for the Airport but for the City Region and beyond, as this will enable passengers to easily travel to more global destinations via Frankfurt with the benefit of starting their journey from Liverpool and the faster, easier, friendlier passenger experience we are now well known for.
“It is also good news for the region’s visitor economy, further opening up access for visitors to the Liverpool City Region, the North West and North Wales and great timing ahead of the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest.”
Lufthansa’s Senior Director Sales Northern Europe Lufthansa Group, Heinrich Lange added, “This new Lufthansa connection from Liverpool to Frankfurt has already enjoyed a very good level of demand in its first year and Liverpool has also proved popular as a new destination. For next summer we are now doubling our number of flights to six per week, increasing our flexibility as passengers will have more flight connections available to them via our Frankfurt hub. Liverpool will see even more incoming guests as well.”
