German carrier Lufthansa is planning a return to London City Airport, with services due to commence on the 7th of September.
The carrier will operate two flights a day between London City Airport and Frankfurt, offering passengers the opportunity to connect into the airline’s wider international route network from its Frankfurt hub.
The move comes after London City Airport for nearly three months between 25th March and 21st June, in response to the escalating public health crisis and government lockdown measures.
During that period, the airport worked behind the scenes to create a safe environment for passengers to travel through.
London City Airport’s Head of Aviation, Anne Doyere, said:
“The resumption of our Frankfurt route is a significant milestone for London City Airport and a positive sign for the UK’s and Europe’s economic recovery, restoring a very popular connection between two of the world’s most important financial centres.
“We have already seen demand from passengers to travel, especially for a summer holiday after months of lockdown. As restrictions continue to ease, with businesses increasing activity and more people getting back to work, we anticipate demand for business travel on routes such as this will grow as we head into the autumn. Lufthansa’s decision to resume this route with twice-daily flights demonstrates their confidence in that too.
“We are working with all of our airline partners to re-establish other important and popular routes as soon as possible, to provide the fast and convenient connectivity needed to recover from the impact of the Coronavirus.”
Don’t forget your face covering
Onboard and on the ground, face coverings are a requirement. You’ll have to follow the appropriate one-way systems and observe social distancing.
For London City Airport, the chance to rebuild is an important one – and it’s grabbing it by both hands as carrier return to the airport to support both business and leisure travel.
