Lufthansa Routes and Schedules

When do you want to fly it? If its in Europe or an old German colony chances are Lufthansa fly there from the hubs of either Frankfurt or Munich.

From London LHR to Frankfurt there are 10 flights a day, Munich gets 7, Hamburg 3, Dusseldorf 4, Cologne 3, Stuttgart 3, and Hannover 3. London City LCY is linked to Frankfurt 3 times a day, however the direct service to Berlin has just been cut.

From Manchester MAN to Frankfurt there are 3 flights a day, but more to Munich - it gets 5. Each day there are 3 to Dusseldorf, and 3 to Hamburg. Birmingham also has 3 direct flights to Frankfurt a day, 4 to Munich, and 3 to Dusseldorf. Frankfurt is also linked to Edinburgh 3 times a day, and Dublin 2 times a day.

A real curiosity is the direct flight to Berlin. For decades Lufthansa was banned from Berlin under the GDR. Even are reunification, there was no direct flight from Heathrow, and an attempt at a three times a day service from London City lasted little more than a year. Finally, with British Airways mopping up passengers on the route, Lufthansa has started direct flights from London Heathrow to Berlin: however it doesn't operate them. Instead it's pushed out these flights to bmi, which it has just taken over. There are direct flights from London at 0700, 1025, 1440, 1730, and 1945 to Tegel.

There is also a small, strange, weekday service from Newcastle to Dusseldorf.
