In a move set to bolster international connectivity and facilitate seamless travel, Lufthansa, one of the leading global airlines, has announced the launch of direct flights between Frankfurt, Germany, and Hyderabad, India. The new service is scheduled to operate five times a week, offering passengers a convenient and efficient means of travel between the two cities. With this new service, the airline offers five destinations in India, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Chennai.

Enhancing Business and Tourism Links:

The introduction of these direct flights signifies a significant enhancement of both business and tourism ties between Germany and India. Frankfurt, a major financial hub in Europe, is not only a gateway to Germany but also serves as a pivotal entry point to the European continent, and a transit for passengers flying to the US, Canada, and South America. Hyderabad is a key economic and technological hub in India, often referred to as the “City of Pearls” and recognized for its burgeoning IT industry and the Pharma hub.

Convenient Schedule and State-of-the-Art Aircraft:

Lufthansa’s decision to operate these flights five times a week provides passengers with a versatile schedule, accommodating various travel preferences. The airline has also revealed that these flights will be operated using state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, a capacity of 294 seats in three classes (26 Business Class/21 Premium Economy/247 Economy).

According to a statement by Lufthansa, the airlines’ capacity to India has increased by 14% (relative to 2019), making it the fastest growing major market for Lufthansa. With Bangalore-Munich and now Hyderabad-Frankfurt services, Lufthansa has launched 2 new routes in the past 3 months, recognizing South India’s growing relevance and demonstrating the strong overall importance of India to the Lufthansa Group. With this development, it is also believed that the airline sis re-thinking its plans to bring back the iconic A380 back on its India routes.
