Lufthansa once again connects Miami gateway

[ July 21, 2020   //   ]

The Lufthansa Group continues to ramp up its services to the United States, resuming flights to its key, global gateways. On Tuesday, July 14, the Group’s flagship carrier, Lufthansa, will resume service to Miami, FL, operating three weekly flights from Miami International Airport to the airline’s largest hub in Frankfurt, Germany, starting the next day on July 15. Lufthansa is continuing to meet the demand of its loyal cus-tomers throughout the United States and will now connect the South Florida region to its growing network of international destinations that are slowly easing travel re-strictions.
The resumed route will operate out of Miami on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays using an Airbus A340-300 with a three-class configuration of Business, Premium Economy and Economy classes. Initially, flights will operate three times per week in July. Beginning July 29 until October 24, the end of the summer schedule, the flights increase to five times weekly.
“The Lufthansa Group is committed to connecting passengers and serving as a bridge between the continents. We are especially excited to resume service for our Miami-based customers as we expand our network connections for the benefit of all travelers in this global city,” said Larry Ryan, senior director of sales, USA for the Lufthansa Group.
By the end of October, over 70 percent of the originally planned long-haul routes will be operated by the Group carriers. Additionally, 90 percent of all originally planned short- and medium-haul destinations will be served again.
Throughout the summer months, Lufthansa is adding important connections for its local Miami-area customers traveling to Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. These include flights within Germany, as well as to other countries including Austria, France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. Flights to Israel have already resumed, and connections to the UAE began on July 3.
More than 2,000 weekly flights to over 130 destinations worldwide will be operated by the Lufthansa Group carriers in the remaining months of the summer season.
“As the world gradually begins to open up, the desire to travel has increased and there is an ever-growing necessity to see family and friends, as well as conduct im-portant business trips. Lufthansa is continually evaluating additional connections globally,” added Ryan.
