Lufthansa Group’s senior director sales for the Gulf, Iran, Afghanistan & Pakistan, Heinrich Lange, said: “After the restart of our Frankfurt-Dubai flights in summer 2020, we have witnessed a steady return in demand. Dubai has proven to be an attractive and safe destination for tourists and business travellers alike.

“As we expect a further increase in demand for flights to Dubai, also driven by the Expo as the first global post-pandemic event, we’re more than happy to announce the introduction of our Dubai-Munich connection.”

The German airline will be offering more than 85,000 additional seats on flights to the UAE during the upcoming winter schedule. The new Lufthansa connection will complement existing daily flights to Frankfurt, as well as daily Swiss flights from Dubai to Zurich during winter.
