This summer Lufthansa will be offering flights
from Munich to three new long-haul destinations. From the end of
March, Tashkent, Tehran and Miami will be included in the
timetable. In addition, services to Cairo, which were launched
this winter from Munich, will be extended until 30 May 2010.
Lufthansa will begin operating the new
service to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, on 28 March 2010.
Many renowned multinational concerns have already established
bases in the country because it is rich in raw material resources
and agricultural produce. Germany is one of Uzbekistan’s principal
import partners and is a key trading partner in terms of exports.
Tashkent is also an interesting tourist destination. The city is
the gateway to the legendary Silk Road.
Lufthansa will serve Tashkent three times a week
(on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays). On each of those days,
flight LH 644 will depart from Munich for Uzbekistan at 20.35 hrs.
The route will be flown by a Boeing 737-800, which is currently
operated on behalf of Lufthansa by the Swiss business jet operator
PrivatAir. This aircraft has 24 seats in Business Class and 84 in
Economy Class. On board the PrivatAir jet, passengers flying
Business Class are treated to all the comforts of Lufthansa’s
long-haul product. Economy Class passengers also enjoy a number of
extra benefits. Due to the lower number of seats, passengers are
guaranteed a very individual service, including personal in-seat
video monitors. All the seats feature ergonomically designed
backrests and additional legroom.
On 29 March, Lufthansa will resume services from
Munich to Tehran. A PrivatAir Boeing 737 will be operated under
the flight number LH 608. Flights will depart for the Iranian
capital four times a week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and
Saturdays) at 20.35 hrs. This flight, with a two-class
configuration, will offer all the comforts of Lufthansa’s
long-haul product. Germany is one of the leading importers of
agricultural goods and industrial products from Iran. For
passengers interested in cultural trips, Tehran is a fascinating
destination but not the only one worth visiting. The country as a
whole has an abundance of historical sites and treasures.
Services to Miami from Munich will also be
resumed on 29 March. The “Sunshine State” is an attractive
destination – and not only for private travellers. Increasingly,
companies in the health care sector and the IT industry are being
drawn to the second-largest city in the state of Florida. Flight
LH 460, operated by an Airbus A330, will depart from Munich three
times a week (on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays) at 9.35 hrs. In
addition, flights to Cairo will be continued until 30 May 2010.
The thrice-weekly service to the Egyptian capital was launched in
November 2009 and was originally planned as a winter seasonal
service. From 28 March, Cairo will be served four times a week (on
Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays). As before, flights
will be operated by a PrivatAir Boeing 737 in a two class
Fares to Miami and Tehran start at 499 euros,
while flights to Tashkent are available from 779 euros. These
fares apply to return flights in Economy Class and include all
taxes, charges and the Lufthansa Ticket Service Charge if the
booking is made online at lufthansa.com.
