Lufthansa has expanded connections between Glasgow and Germany with a new daily flight to the major financial centre of Frankfurt.


With its modern fleet of Airbus A320s, Lufthansa already flies from Glasgow to Munich five times per week and the new route to Frankfurt further underlines the airline's commitment to Glasgow.


Andreas Koester, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group, said: "This new daily service opens up a huge number of business and leisure opportunities to Scottish passengers. Not only does it provide access to one of Europe's financial capitals, but it also introduces new options for onward travel to hundreds of worldwide destinations".


Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport's Commercial Director, said: "Frankfurt is one of the world's leading financial hubs and home to the European Central Bank, while Glasgow is referred to as Scotland's economic powerhouse".


Glasgow Chamber of Commerce chief executive Stuart Patrick said: "Frankfurt is a principal German city, with an airport that is one of the top three hubs on the European mainland, giving access to markets worldwide. It will be a source of opportunities for our business community as they travel the globe in sectors such as food and drink, engineering and financial services."
