Edinburgh Airport and Lufthansa are celebrating the launch of a new route between the city and Munich.

The Lufthansa service will fly twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays during the winter season. It will operate on an A319 which offers 28 business class seats, the only business class product between the cities.

It adds to the existing routes to Munich operated by Eurowings and easyJet, further strengthening Edinburgh’s links to Germany and beyond thanks to the hub connectivity to Central and Eastern Europe.
