LUFTHANSA German Airlines now offers flights from Dubai to Munich on its A319 business executive jet six times a week until October 28, 2008.
The inaugural flight service on the Dubai Munich route began on May 1 from Munich to Dubai. It will fly everyday except Wednesday.
This adds to Lufthansa’s existing daily flight from Dubai to Frankfurt onboard the Boeing 747, offering passengers easy connections to Germany, Europe and the US.
Peter Pollak, general manager passenger sales UAE and director Gulf & Pakistan, Lufthansa German Airlines said, “We are very happy to offer our customers such an exclusive product which allows our passengers to enjoy an all year round offer on the Dubai-Munich route as well as convenient departure and arrival timings specially designed according to the needs of our business travellers. In addition, passengers enjoy easy transfers and optimal connections via onward flights to European and US connections through the hub in Munich”.
Business is the only class on board offering offering a maximum of 48 seats. The seats recline at 160 degrees, are two metre long with a seat pitch of 58 inches and seat width of 21 inches.
Passengers travelling with Lufthansa’s Business Jet service can check in at the business class counter, have access to the Business Lounge located on the departure level (H level) in Munich and the Star Alliance Lounge in Dubai and board from gate H 40.
Exclusive terminal area in Frankfurt
THE new passenger handling area between the C and D concourses in Terminals 1 and 2 was recently inaugurated at Frankfurt Airport. With two waiting levels and amply dimensioned bridges, the new pier in the passageway links the C and D concourses.
Entirely new is the pier concept allowing passengers to board their flights direct from two separate levels. “The new and exclusive Lufthansa gate area located on two levels is unique, worldwide. Even before the first 380 enters service with the Lufthansa fleet, we are already laying on more space and comfort for passengers prior to flight departure,” says Karl Ulrich Garnadt, executive vice president services and human resources at Lufthansa Passenger Airlines.
With the new two-level boarding concept, Lufthansa can now channel first, business and economy class passengers into separate areas as soon as they access the waiting and boarding zone at the airport.
