Lufthansa resumes route from Frankfurt to Austin
Lufthansa’s Frankfurt to Austin service
Lufthansa has resumed service to Austin from Frankfurt. With Texas being one of the most important markets in the US, the resumed route to Austin brings the number of Lufthansa gateways in the Lone Star state to three, with service already existing from Houston and Dallas to Frankfurt.
“Austin is our third gateway in Texas, offering not only a connection between two culture-rich cities, but also an important link for the region’s ever-expanding technology ecosystem and the global technology hubs which Lufthansa serves,” said Don Bunkenburg, Senior Director of Sales for the U.S. – Central, West & Central America, Lufthansa Group. “Central Texas residents can now access Lufthansa’s vast network of destinations in Europe and beyond via Frankfurt. The resumed service also supports the growing interest in Austin for both commerce and leisure, directly benefiting the local economy and spurring further business development on both sides of the Atlantic.”
The route will be operated three times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with the A330-300.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Lufthansa and direct flights to Frankfurt, Germany,” said Jacqueline Yaft, Chief Executive Officer, AUS. “As business travel continues to recover and as leisure travel demand remains strong here in Austin, the re-launch of this route is an exciting pandemic milestone recovery for AUS.”
