German carrier Lufthansa has relaunched non-stop flights from Munich to the Iranian capital, Tehran.
Flight LH 602 will operate three times a week departing Munich at 22.10 pm and arriving in Tehran at 5.20 am.
The Airbus A330-300 offers Lufthansa passengers the latest cabin facilities including Premium Economy with 21 seats. With this new connection the Lufthansa Group is expanding its daily offer with a Boeing B747-400 from Frankfurt. Moreover, Austrian Airlines is flying up to twice a week from Vienna with an Airbus A320.
“Due to increasing business relations, we are expecting a significantly higher demand in the future. Iran has also gained greater significance with culture tourists,” said Thomas Winkelmann, CEO of Lufthansa’s Munich hub.
Flights between Munich and Tehran previously operated from spring 2004 to summer 2006.
