Frankfurt is renowned for its world-class attractions, including the opera house, Goethe Museum and the Deutsches Film Museum; culture seekers in particular can now take advantage of the convenient new services. This is the first Frankfurt service for Lufthansa from Bristol strengthening the South West’s accessibility to Germany.
Announcing the new flight, “Andreas Köster, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group said: “We are looking forward to resuming our Bristol service this upcoming summer and offering our customers great connectivity within our world-wide, multi-hub system.
