Lufthansa German Airlines celebrating silver jubilee of its services in Riyadh.
(MENAFN - Arab News) Celebrating 25 years in Riyadh and marking its continued confidence with its more than 50 years in the Kingdom, Lufthansa German Airlines has announced that it will increase its Riyadh-Munich service to five flights a week beginning May 16, 2013. The Munich service will connect Jeddah via Riyadh.

Lufthansa also announced the launch of a new non-stop flight from Munich to Vancouver from the same date, connecting passengers from Saudi Arabia more conveniently to the largest city in Western Canada.

The Airlines celebrates its local silver jubilee this month, having completed 25 years of operations in Riyadh. Since launching flights from Riyadh to Frankfurt in 1987, the airline has been increasing its presence and capacity in the Kingdom.

Lufthansa first arrived in Dammam more than 50 years ago followed by Jeddah in 1967. Today, Lufthansa offers flights from Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam to Frankfurt and a Jeddah-Munich one via Riyadh.

The increased capacity on the Munich route from May 2013 will bring the total number of weekly flights offered by the airline to 23 to passengers from the Kingdom.

Mr. Jens Bischof, Board Member of Lufthansa German Airlines, who flew in to Riyadh to celebrate the jubilee, expressed the importance of Saudi Arabia for the airline: "Saudi Arabia is a key market for Lufthansa and is in fact one of the first countries in the Middle East that the airline operated services. With 25 years in Riyadh, 45 years in Jeddah and 52 years in Dammam, our operations in the Kingdom are stronger than ever."
