Lufthansa will fly nonstop from Tampa to Frankfurt in the fall 2015. This city in the west coast of Florida is the third destination on which it will use Airbus A340-300 since the airlines already flies to Orlando and Miami. The German carrier will deploy four wintertime flights in a week starting from September 25, 2015. In the summers, it will add more flight on the route.

The reconfigured A340 aircraft will have 298 seats with no first class, 18 new lie-flat business class seats, 280 economy seats out of which 19 are Premium Economy. Tampa will be the first destination to use this reconfigured aircraft.


Karl Ulrich Garnadt, CEO of Lufthansa expressed delight that the airline’s customers will be able to board nonstop comfortable flights from Tampa to Frankfurt. He also anticipates that this direct connection will be in huge demand among leisure and corporate travelers.

Carsten Spohr, the Chief Executive Officer of Lufthansa Group holding company said in a statement that the number of premium seats will be reduced to 18 in business class whereas the economy and premium economy seats will be increased to 280. He also added that this will allow the airline to focus on leisure destinations which have less demand for premium class seats.

Tampa International also spoke highly of Lufthansa and its CEO Joe Lopano said that this new Tampa-Frankfurt route is a big win for Tampa Bay. Lufthansa is one the most lucrative airlines in the aviation industry; this new route is the testimony of the global impact of air travel industry in the city.

The airline also mentioned that the connection to Frankfurt will link it to one of the busiest hubs where Lufthansa flies to 145 destinations in Asia, Africa and Europe.
