Lufthansa will soon start offering long-haul flights to Asia from Düsseldorf.

From 1 June 2012, Lufthansa will offer its passengers the first non-stop flight from North Rhine-Westphalia to the Japanese capital of Tokyo. The new route will operate six times per week with an Airbus A340-300.

“Following the introduction of intercontinental routes to the major North American cities of New York, Chicago, Miami and Toronto, we are now expanding our offer towards Asia with a direct flight to Tokyo,” said Oliver Wagner, Senior Vice President Direct Services at Deutsche Lufthansa. “As one of the most important economic nations, Japan is of major significance to Lufthansa and at the same time, Düsseldorf’s central location in Europe’s most important conurbation makes its “Japan’s capital on the Rhine”. In addition, the integration of Tokyo will help to develop and strengthen our route network at Lufthansa’s Düsseldorf hub and will offer passengers attractive connecting flights to over 50 direct destinations in Germany and Europe.”

 The Düsseldorf region has over 500 Japanese companies located in the region. A quarter of all Japanese citizens in living in Germany live in the North Rhine-Westphalian capital, making it the third largest Japanese community in Europe, behind London and Paris.

The return flight from Düsseldorf to Tokyo and back will be available from 849 euros. The price applies for Economy Class tickets and includes all taxes, fees and the Lufthansa Ticket Service Charge. Terms and conditions apply.

Miles & More passengers can collect up to 37.600 miles on these flights – depending on booking class and status.
