Whether you are looking to spend time at the beach, explore a new city or setting off on an exciting adventure, Lufthansa will take you there in style.

Munich to Jerez de la Frontera

Starting April 4th, 2020 Lufthansa will, for the first time, begin a once-weekly flight from Munich to Jerez de la Frontera (Spain). Using an Airbus A320, passengers will depart Munich at 12:25 arriving in the Andalucian city at 15:25. The return flight back to Munich will depart Jerez Airport (XRY) on the same day at 16:10 in the afternoon landing back in Munich at 19:10 in the evening.

Capital of the Andalucian horse culture and the home of Sherry, Jerez de la Frontera is a vibrant city where modern fashion blends with old fashion style. Often overlooked in favor of Cordoba or Seville, a visit to Jerez will give you a true sense of daily Andalucian life.

Munich to Minsk

Also starting April 4th, 2020 Lufthansa will offer a once-weekly flight to the Belarusian capital of Minsk operating a Bombardier CR900. The flight will depart Munich at 14:50 Saturday afternoon landing at Minsk National Airport (MSQ) at 8:00 in the evening. The return flight back to Bavaria departs Minsk at 18:55 arriving back in Munich around two hours later. The flight from Munich to Minsk compliments Lufthansa’s yearly two a day flights from Frankfurt.

Once a dreary grey place full of utilitarian communist architecture, Minsk will surprise visitors with its fashionable cafes, restaurants and packed nightclubs. Throw away any misconceptions you may have had of Minsk and embrace a city that’s hard not to like.


Two new Lufthansa flights from Frankfurt


Starting March 30th, 2020 Lufthansa will offer twice-daily year-round flights to the English city of Bristol except for Saturdays when there will only be one flight. Operating on the route will be a 100 seat Lufthansa Embraer 190 configured in a passenger-friendly 2-2 seating layout.

Both return flights back to Germany depart 35 minutes after the aircraft’s arrival in England and will allow passengers to connect to Lufthansa’s worldwide network from its Frankfurt hub.

With a world-class street art scene and a docklands steeped in maritime history, Bristol is an exciting city that is easily explored on foot.


Completely new to Lufthansa is the Breton capital of Rennes, France to which Lufthansa will be flying three times a week starting March 31st. The flights aboard a Bombardier CR900 will be on a Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday departing Frankfurt at 15:55 in the afternoon arriving at 17:30 CET.
