Lufthansa officially launched its new long-haul route from Munich to Vancouver yesterday (May 16). The new route marks 30 years of Lufthansa service to Vancouver and complements the airline’s daily Frankfurt-Vancouver flights, which commenced in May of 1983. The new Munich-Vancouver route is the only international long-haul route Lufthansa is adding this year worldwide. The daily flights provide travellers from Vancouver with an alternative gateway to Germany, Europe and beyond – with over 282 destinations worldwide. “Our new Vancouver-Munich route offers an exciting new choice for British Columbian travellers, but it also provides European business and leisure travellers another travel option to the largest city in British Columbia,”said Juergen Siebenrock, vice-president, The Americas, Lufthansa German Airlines. “Given the strong performance of our Vancouver-Frankfurt route and the increasing demand by Western Canadians for a new direct passage to Germany, the new route makes a great addition to our services by adding more than 1,500 additional seats to Germany every week.”(
