MONTREAL — Lufthansa is set to further expand its service from Frankfurt. Between May 16 and Oct. 12, 2014, the airline will offer seasonal summer flights from Frankfurt to Montreal and Valencia, Spain.
The nonstop flights to Canada will operate five times a week on Tuesday through Friday as well as on Sunday, using Airbus A340-300 and A330-300 aircraft in a Business and Economy Class configuration. Lufthansa already operates daily nonstop flights between Munich and Montreal, with partner airline SWISS offering daily services from its hub in Zurich to the city.
The new route will also complement the service offered by Star Alliance partner Air Canada, which operates daily flights between Frankfurt and Montreal.
With these two additions to the summer season, Lufthansa will increase direct services to 19 destinations in North America and seven cities across Spain.
Flight LH478 is scheduled to depart from Frankfurt in the early afternoon and reach Montreal at 3:35 p.m. local time. This will enable passengers travelling through Montreal to connect to the network of Lufthansa’s partner Air Canada. The return flight, LH479, is set to depart Canada at 5:10 p.m. and arrive in Germany the next morning at 6:25 a.m.
