Mr. Pradeep Panicker, CEO of GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd said the following on the new services to Frankfurt with Lufthansa:
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of new flight services to Frankfurt with Lufthansa Airlines. This connectivity will benefit travellers visiting Frankfurt as a transit point or for leisure trips and would open up multiple destinations in Europe, USA, Canada, and South America via Frankfurt.”
“It has been our priority to connect our passengers to global destinations from the city of Hyderabad. This is a step in that direction and an important milestone for the Hyderabad airport.”
Adding to this was Mr. George Ettiyil, Senior Director – South Asia, Lufthansa Group:
“With our new Hyderabad-Frankfurt service we now offer Indian passengers x64 weekly flights to our hubs in Europe and onward connections to the biggest network on the continent”
