20 Nov 2014 by GrahamSmith

Lufthansa will next year start flying from Frankfurt to Tampa for the first time.

The German airline will roster an A340-300, with 18 seats in business class, 19 in premium economy and 261 in economy, to Tampa International airport from September 25.

The route will operate five-times weekly in the summer and four-times weekly in the winter. Tampa will be Lufthansa's third destination in Florida, joining Miami and Orlando.

Outbound flight LH482 will depart Frankfurt at 1100 and arrive in Tampa at 1550 local time, while return service LH483 will leave Tampa at 1720 and land in Frankfurt at 0845 local time the following day.

Karl Ulrich Garnadt, CEO of Lufthansa German Airlines, said: "We're delighted that our passengers will soon be able to fly in comfort non-stop to the west coast of Florida on flights to our new US destination at Tampa."
