Lufthansa has announced it will commence operations at Belfast City Airport. The airline is entering the Northern Irish market for the first time and will operate flights from Belfast City Airport to Frankfurt from 23 April 2023. The service will operate up to four times a week.

“Attracting an airline such as Lufthansa to Northern Ireland that will provide the only route from the region to Germany is a major win for not only the airport, but the wider tourism and business industry,” said Katy Best, Commercial Director, Belfast City Airport. “With Germany being the third-largest market for overseas tourism to the island of Ireland, there is a clear demand for direct connectivity.”

Dr Frank Wagner, General Manager Sales, UK, Ireland and Iceland, Lufthansa Group, commented: “We are excited to announce the addition of Belfast City Airport to Lufthansa’s global network with the inaugural flight to Frankfurt on 23 April 2023. This new nonstop connection will bring Northern Ireland much closer to Frankfurt and to the heart of Western Europe. Connecting passengers will enjoy a convenient and full-service connection beyond our hub to our vast network of over 200 destinations in summer 2023.”
