Lufthansa expands its direct services from Milan

Monday 29 Sep 2008 6:08am

German airline Lufthansa has announced plans to offer its passengers an expanded service from Milan Malpensa airport to attractive European destinations. Under the planned expansion direct flights will be available from the Italian city to Barcelona, Brussels, Bucharest, Budapest, Madrid and Paris from February 2009. London and Lisbon will be added as further destinations under the new 2009 summer timetable. Karl Ulrich Garnadt, Executive Vice President of Lufthansa Passenger Airlines said: 'With the introduction of our new, direct flights from Milan, we will be able to offer customers in Italy a reliable service with the usual high Lufthansa quality'. Mr Garnadt added: 'Milan Malpensa's catchment area extends as far as the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland and is one of the key economic regions in Europe. Moreover, by expanding our services, we will create about 150 new jobs in Milan. ' Mr Garnadt went on to say: 'Lufthansa is very well positioned in Italy. It is extremely popular with Italian customers and demand is high. Our new services from Italy not only offer familiar Lufthansa values such as reliability and top quality, but also combine these with Italian flair on board'. From 2009, Lufthansa will base six Airbus A319s in Italy rather than Embraer 195s, as it originally planned. The new A319s will be operated by Lufthansa's Italian subsidiary Air Dolomiti.
