Lufthansa launches new seasonal direct flight Toronto-Munich – Summer 2014


Starting on June 5 2014, Lufthansa German Airlines launches a new seasonal direct flight from Toronto to Munich. With the inauguration of another seasonal direct flight from Montreal to Frankfurt, this means that three Canadian cities – Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal – will each have direct flights to Lufthansa’s two most important hubs, Frankfurt and Munich. The Toronto-Munich flights (LH 494/495) will depart daily during the summer months.

“We have already been flying Toronto-Frankfurt for 40 years, but we have never flown to Munich from Toronto. This is very exciting for business and leisure traffic, but also for destinations beyond Bavaria and Germany,” says Hans DeHaan, director Canada, Lufthansa Group. “We usually start the route in the summer and then as it progresses and gains strength we will consider year-round service.”

Toronto and Montreal are the only North American cities where we are adding capacity this year, so we are very confident in the Canadian market,” says DeHaan.
