Lufthansa announces return to Newcastle with daily Frankfurt service
Lufthansa will return to North-East England with the launch of a new daily service between its Frankfurt hub and Newcastle International Airport on 28 June 2021.
Frankfurt Airport is, of course, Lufthansa’s largest hub and, as international travel begins to recover, will provide passengers with easy access to cities throughout Europe, the Middle East, the Americas, Africa, and Asia Pacific thanks to the airline’s global network of 140 destinations in 46 countries.
“We can offer a huge connectivity as we take advantage of our hub system in Frankfurt,” says Andreas Köster, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group. “Lufthansa can provide more than a hundred connections beyond Frankfurt to all relevant destinations worldwide, just with one single transit. We are very happy to return this upcoming summer, reconnect Newcastle International Airport to our huge network and resume our connection for our customers in North-East England.”
Nick Jones, Chief Executive, Newcastle International Airport, adds: “We are delighted to welcome Lufthansa back to Newcastle International Airport and it is fantastic news for the North East and beyond that the airline will be operating this new daily service to Frankfurt. The addition of this route not only provides a new direct destination, but also access to another major global hub for the North East public from the airport. Frankfurt Airport feeds directly into Lufthansa’s extensive onward connection network and will give passengers even more opportunity to travel to destinations across Europe and the wider world. This will help to support the restoration of crucial global connectivity from the region as we look to compete in the future.”
Flights will depart Frankfurt at 16:10 every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and depart Newcastle at 17:35. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays flights will depart Frankfurt at 10:20 and Newcastle at 12:15.
