Lufthansa German airlines is planning a busy Greek summer– their busiest on record with new destinations and flights being added to the airline’s already expansive relationship with Greece.
Lufthansa will operate its Greek flights out of Frankfurt and Munich. The airline has plans to add Rhodes and Zakynthos to its network, starting on 4th April 2020.
The German airline confirmed in a press statement that the new offerings would increase flights between Germany and Greece to record numbers– “more than ever before.”
“In summer 2020, Lufthansa will thus be offering all sun-hungry passengers up to 14 weekly connections to five Greek islands in addition to flights to Athens and Thessaloniki. More than ever before.”
Incidentally, Condor, another German airline is also increasing its routes to Greece.
Condor will operate direct flights to Santorini, Mykonos, and Samos starting on May 1, 2020. The airline will fly once a week to Mykonos from Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich airports and will fly twice a week from the same airports to the island of Santorini.
It also currently operates between Stuttgart and Samos but it hopes to expand the connection to Samos between Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich as well.
The additional flights from Germany mean that there will be more options for North American tourists to use German airports as a connection to Greece. Lufthansa operates dozens of flights from cities across the United States and Canada.
