We welcome the air service between the two tech hubs and the successful interchange of international tourism, business, and economic development opportunities.”

“Austin is our third gateway in Texas, offering not only a connection between two culture-rich cities but also an important link for the city’s local bourgeoning technology ecosystem and the global technology hubs which Lufthansa serves,” said Heike Birlenbach, Senior Vice President of Sales for the Lufthansa Hub Airlines and Chief Commercial Officer of the Frankfurt Hub. “Central Texas residents can now access Lufthansa’s vast network of destinations in Europe and beyond via Frankfurt. The new service also supports the growing interest in Austin for both commerce and leisure, directly benefiting the local economy and spurring further business development on both sides of the Atlantic.”

This flight offers Central Texas passengers hundreds of connections to Europe, as well as Africa, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent. Frankfurt is Lufthansa’s main hub and is Germany’s most international city – offering a rich blend of culture and history.
