Lufthansa will expand its offering Frankfurt and Munich to include six new tourist destinations.

The airline announced in a statement that the 6 new destinations will include Eilat (Israel), Agadir (Morocco), Trieste (Italy), Thessaloniki (Greece), Edinburgh (United Kingdom) and Tromsø (Norway).

Lufthansa now flies from Frankfurt and Munich to Eilat, the attractive holiday resort on the Red Sea in the south of Israel. They will fly to this “sunshine paradise”  4 times a week (Thursdays and Sundays from Frankfurt and Tuesdays and Saturdays from Munich).

They will also fly to Agadir every Monday and Saturday from Frankfurt and every Sunday from Munich. Agadir is located on the southern Atlantic coast of Morocco, in the foothills of the Anti-Atlas mountains. The capital of the province of Agadir Ida-Ou Tanane is a popular holiday destination featuring golf courses and endless beaches.

Trieste, the capital of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the north-east of Italy, is considered one of the literary capitals of Europe, and its many ethnic and religious groups have earned it the moniker of ‘early New York’. From the start of the winter, you can fly there with Lufthansa twelve times a week departing from Frankfurt.

The airline will once again offer flights to Thessaloniki from Frankfurt. The town is the ideal starting point for hikes and explorations of the north of Greece.

Edinburgh is a new European destination from Munich. From December 2018, Lufthansa will fly to the Scottish capital on Tuesdays and Saturdays, in addition to the existing Frankfurt route. Edinburgh not only has an interesting old town, it is also the perfect starting point for visiting the Highlands.


Cultural Tromsø is regarded as an ideal starting point for experiencing the Northern Lights.  An Airbus A319 flies to this Norwegian city every Thursday and Saturday. These flights also depart from Frankfurt.
