From the beginning of next week, the carrier will provide flights three times a day to Frankfurt, where passengers can then access onward European and international connections.
The airport said that it was getting ready for the arrival of the airline by conducting training checks on Lufthansa’s systems, as well as ordering German newspapers for the business lounge.
Alison Roberts, terminal general manager at Bristol International Airport, said that the airport was working hard to make sure it was ready to help deliver a “great customer service and high quality product” to the thousands of passengers who will be flying to Frankfurt.
Marianne Sammann, Lufthansa general manager UK and Ireland, added: “This new service is a direct response to business traveller demand. The Bristol area includes the headquarters of a number of global companies – including Airbus, HBOS (Halifax Bank of Scotland), Hewlett-Packard, Knorr-Bremse, Orange and Rolls-Royce – and they will now be able to take advantage of Lufthansa’s reputation for punctuality and efficiency from their local airport.”
