Liverpool gains global connectivity with new Lufthansa route

Global connectivity for Liverpool John Lennon airport has returned for the first time in a decade with a new Lufthansa service to Frankfurt.

The route enables travellers to connect to the carrier’s worldwide network via its main German hub, with flights running four times a week.

Airport chief executive John Irving said: “We are delighted to see this important and strategic new route come to fruition, with Lufthansa welcomed here today by representatives of the business community and visitor economy from across the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire and North Wales.

“This route reconnects Liverpool with the world, now enabling travellers from across the region fly to a host of global destinations via Lufthansa’s seamless connections at Frankfurt, with the added advantage of all the passenger benefits of flying from Liverpool.”

Lufthansa Group senior director sales northern Europe, Heinrich Lange, added: We want to convince our customers from north-western England and Wales about an easy transfer at our Frankfurt hub.

“Every passenger stays in the same terminal building for their connecting flight. And we are pleased that Liverpudlians can now start their journey with us from even closer to their home or office.”
