Lufthansa adds Stuttgart from LCY

23 Feb 2006 by business traveller

Lufthansa is expanding at London's convenient City airport.  On March 26, the German airline is launching a new route to Stuttgart and increasing flight frequency to both Dusseldorf and Frankfurt.

Stuttgart and its surrounding region is an economic success story with multi-national firms and pioneering SMEs.  It's also the gateway to the Black Forest region.

Flight LH2725 departs City at 14.40 to reach Stuttgart at 17.45. The inbound service leaves at 12.50 and arrives in City at 14.10.  Services are operated by Lufthansa partner Contact Air using an ATR turbo-prop.  These timings may not be ideal for everyone but passengers can mix and match flights with existing schedules to and from Heathrow.  Tickets start at £75 return. 

In addition, Lufthansa will operate new Saturday morning and Sunday lunchtime services to Frankfurt. It will also add an afternoon service to Dusseldorf.  These will compliment the existing early and late schedules on both routes.

Lufthansa's announcement follows the recent launch of two other new routes from City. On January 30, regional carrier Eastern Airways inaugurated a four times a day domestic service to Newcastle while on February 13 SAS began a twice daily service to Stockholm Arlanda.

London City Airport

In other news, London City says that its shuttle bus links to Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf will cease from Friday March 3 because of falling demand.  The airport says that the new DLR rail service (with journey times of 14 minutes to Canary Wharf and 22 minutes to Bank in the City of London) has proved very popular with passengers.
