The airline company is expanding its network of services in west central Africa and is including a new route to the capital of Gabon, Libreville.
Starting off from the 15th of July 2009, the airline will offer flights five times every week (excluding Fridays and Sundays) from Frankfurt, flying via Accra-Ghana to Libreville. This latest addition would mean that a total of 16 destinations across Africa are now offered to customers.
“Our route network is growing steadily, particularly in West and Central Africa…only last year we added two new destinations – Malabo in Equatorial Guinea and the Angolan capital Luanda – to our schedule. A few days ago, we increased our frequencies to Angola to two flights per week”
says Karl Ulrich Garnadt Executive Vice President, Lufthansa.
The new route will be operated by Airbus A340 and A330 aircraft with a First, Business und Economy Class cabin. In addition, from 1 July 2009, the airline will be serving Accra five times a week non-stop, rather than with a stopover in Lagos, Nigeria. Including the SWISS destinations Douala and Yaounde (both in Cameroon), Lufthansa customers have a choice of 31 flights per week to eight destinations in this dynamic economic region in West and Central Africa.
The company will be offering a return ticket from Frankfurt to Libreville for just 949 euros and would apply to Economy class with taxes, charges and the Lufthansa ticket service charge of 15 euros, provided the booking is made via their online service.
