Lufthansa To Re-link Bavarian Hub and Tel Aviv

By webadmin |  February 23 2009


East Meadow, NY, — Lufthansa announced that subject to government approval, it will expand its capacity to Israel this spring with the introduction of four weekly flights between Munich and Tel Aviv beginning April 26, 2009. The new service complements Lufthansa’s existing double-daily service from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv, providing U.S. travelers with even more connectivity options through Munich’s award-winning airport. From Munich, North American travelers can connect to 107 destinations in 38 countries.

The new Munich – Tel Aviv route will be operated by a 221-seat Airbus A340-300, offering eight First Class, 48 Business Class and 165 Economy Class seats for a total of 884 additional seats per week between Europe and Israel. The flight will depart on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from Munich and will feature Lufthansa’s new in-flight personal entertainment screens in Economy Class, the longest bed in Business Class at six feet six inches, and a premium First Class service that includes access to Lufthansa’s renowned First Class Lounges.

“For over 40 years, Lufthansa has served as a bridge between Germany and Israel, connecting it with millions of travelers from all corners of the globe. We are thrilled to extend this bridge even further and provide our North American travelers with even more options for traveling to Israel,” said Jens Bischof, Vice President, the Americas at Lufthansa.
