Lufthansa to offer additional flights to Abu Dhabi

This fall, Lufthansa German Airlines is set to make changes to its service between Frankfurt and Abu Dhabi as the carrier increases the number of flights handling this route.

Before the end of October, Lufthansa will discontinue its flights to Muscat, Oman. This, in turn, will provide individuals who like to purchase first class tickets and business class airfares for a trip to Abu Dhabi with more travel options.

The additional nonstop service will carry passengers aboard Lufthansa's Airbus A330-300 and take off daily from Abu Dhabi International Airport, bound for Frankfurt Airport. Last October, the airline increased the number of flights along this route from six weekly trips to daily service due to heavy traffic between the two destinations.

"Lufthansa is pleased to announce increased capacity on its Abu Dhabi-Frankfurt route, which reflects the growing demand from our customers in the Abu Dhabi region, in Germany and in the rest of Europe," said Peter Pollak, the airline's general manager for the United Arab Emirates and director for Gulf and Iraq.

Passengers who hold first class airfares will find eight seats in the Airbus A330-300's premiere cabin, according to Lufthansa's website. Meanwhile, travelers who have purchased business class tickets will have their pick of 48 seats.

In Lufthansa's First Class cabin, seats can be converted into fully flat beds in the event that passengers want to get some rest on a long trip. To help make travelers feel at home while they are high above the ground, the airline staff provides a pillow and a high-quality duvet. In business class, individuals are provided with what the airline's website refers to as a generous seat size and pitch. Blankets and pillows are also available to ensure a relaxing flight.

On long trips, passengers have more than enough in-flight entertainment for their eyes and ears, as well as dining options for their taste buds, to help the time spent in the air fly by. First class ticket holders can choose from a wide selection of movies that come in up to eight different languages for the international traveler who wants something to watch. Meanwhile, in the aircraft's Business Class cabin, passengers can enjoy a meal on the plane or take advantage of the airline's breakfast-to-go service.
