Lufthansa Launches Hyderabad Service

Lufthansa has launched direct flights from Hyderabad in India to Frankfurt, Germany.

Furthering its commitment to India and enhancing its presence on the subcontinent, Lufthansa German Airlines has launched direct services between Hyderabad, the capital of the Indian state of Telangana and Frankfurt, Germany. 

Once known as the City of Pearls due to its historical significance in the pearl and diamond trade, Hyderabad has long been a hub for merchants and traders from all over the world. Today, Hyderabad is India’s 4th largest city, an emerging technological, aerospace and Indian pharma hub, with a strong presence of major multinational companies including Google and Microsoft as well as Boeing and Airbus.  

As a growing capital city in a prosperous state, both Hyderabad and the State of Telangana have contributed to the economic success of India today. An investment hub as well as a centre for innovation, Hyderabad combines the old-world charm of its rich history with the dynamism of 21st-century India.

As the leading European carrier in India, Lufthansa now operates direct connections from Germany to five destinations in the country with Hyderabad-Frankfurt being the latest addition to its global network. As the fastest-growing major market for Lufthansa globally, capacity growth in India exceeds pre-pandemic levels.     

Lufthansa has launched direct flights from Hyderabad in India to Frankfurt, Germany.

“With our new Hyderabad-Frankfurt service we now offer Indian passengers 64 weekly flights to our hubs in Europe and onward connections to the biggest network on the European continent,” says George Ettiyil, Senior Director – South Asia, Lufthansa Group. “As we launch Hyderabad, our capacity to India has increased by 14% (relative to 2019), making it the fastest-growing major market for Lufthansa.  With Bangalore-Munich and now Hyderabad-Frankfurt services, we have launched two new routes in the past three months, recognising South India’s growing relevance and demonstrating the strong overall importance of India to the Lufthansa Group.”

The new service will be operated using a new 787 Dreamliner.
