Lufthansa will launch a new nonstop route between Munich and Denver next year.
The German airline will operate the service five-times weekly — on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays — from May 11.
It will roster an A330-300 in a four-class configuration, including 21 seats in premium economy, on to the route.
Outbound service LH480 will depart Munich at 1145 and arrive in Denver at 1430. Return leg LH481 will leave Denver at 1605 and land in Munich at 1005 the next day.
Thomas Kluhr, a member of Lufthansa's executive board, said: "With Denver, we are offering our customers an extremely attractive travel destination. Denver is a paradise for sports fans and nature lovers. The city was also awarded the title of best metropolis for 'business and careers'."
Last week, it emerged that Lufthansa is to phase out its first class "seat and a bed" concept (see news, October 16).
