Oviedo (EFE).- The German company Lufthansa will connect Asturias to Frankfurt and Munich with four weekly flights from April 23 next year, increasing the direct international connections from the Principality’s airport to eleven.
According to the offer of the German airline, which has already put tickets for these new routes on sale, the frequencies between Asturias and Frankfurt will be on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while the connection with Munich will take place on Saturdays .
These new connections with the two main air connection centers in Germany will connect the Asturian community to more than 200 destinations worldwide.
