Lufthansa enjoyed its most successful year ever in Dublin Airport last year, carrying just under 370,000 passengers on its Dublin routes, which was a 7% increase on 2012.
New data from Lufthansa shows that almost three quarters of its passengers from Dublin are making onward connections to the airline’s worldwide network through its Frankfurt and Munich hubs.
“Once again Dublin has proved to be a key market for Lufthansa within our network. It reinforces our belief that discerning travellers still prefer the added value they receive from a full service airline,” said Christian Schindler, Lufthansa’s General Manager UK & Ireland.
“We will continue to offer our Dublin passengers the shortest possible onward connection times to our worldwide network through our hubs of Frankfurt and Munich,” he added.
Last year, the most popular onward destinations for Lufthansa’s Dublin Airport passengers included; Moscow, Kiev, Tel Aviv, Lagos, Sofia, Beijing, Caracas, Tokyo, Zagreb, Cairo, Graz and Minsk.
