New Highland Flights from Germany

Lufthansa airlines will be running a Saturday only service from Inverness Airport to Dusseldorf in Germany from 20th June to 12th September, for a trial period. The flights which will start from £90 return(inclusive of airport tax, sandwich and a drink) will have 70 seats with business and economy services.

Dusseldorf is one of Germany's most prosperous areas and houses Europe's largest Japanese community and is less than two hours away by air and it is hoped that the route may become permanent.

Lufthansa’s general manager for the UK and Ireland, said the Highlands would be popular with German tourists who enjoy hiking and golf. With proposed marketing activity in Germany next year for the golf market this route could be a nice wee add on for GTS members looking for new markets.
