Today, Lufthansa announced its upcoming 2017 summer flight schedule mainly targeted towards leisure travelers. Five new summer destinations have been added to its European offerings and are currently on sale.

New destinations from Frankfurt:
Beginning March 27, 2017, there will be a flight every Monday, Thursday and Friday from Frankfurt to Santiago de Compostela (Spain). This city and its cathedral are the end point of one of the best known Christian pilgrimages, the Way of St. James, and also the gateway to Galicia. Travelers here can look forward to beaches, charming forests and picturesque villages.

Bordeaux (France) is on Lufthansa’s flight plan from Frankfurt for wine fans and sun-seekers as of April 2, 2017. Flights leave on Thursdays and Sundays for the metropolis on the Gironde, the economic, political and cultural capital of south-west France.

Once a week (Saturday) from April 29, 2017, Lufthansa will offer flights to Shannon (Ireland) from Frankfurt. Shannon is situated in County Clare, one of Ireland’s most popular holiday regions, which is famous for its abbeys and castles. This is also a great starting place for exploring Ireland’s “Wild Atlantic Way” – a spectacular coastal tourism trail that has been declared as the longest coastal route in the world.

The program of summer destinations from Frankfurt is completed by the Baltic resort of Heringsdorf. From April 15, friends of the Baltic Sea and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can fly once a week (Saturday) to the “Nice on the Baltic Sea” with Lufthansa.

Last but not least, fans of the flower island of Madeira will be happy because Lufthansa will now offer flights to Funchal (Portugal) from Frankfurt all year round, not only in winter.

New destinations from Munich:
Francophiles should mark their diaries for March 28, 2017. That is the date of the first Lufthansa flight from Munich to Nantes (France). The capital of the Pays de la Loire region is one of the most dynamic cultural and artistic centers in France, and Lufthansa will be flying there four times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday) all year round. Nantes is just 33 miles away from the Atlantic.

Santiago de Compostela (Spain) will be having a double premiere within the Lufthansa flight timetable next summer. For the first time passengers can fly to the Galician metropolis once a week (Sunday) from Munich, as well as from Frankfurt. Flights can be booked from the start of the schools’ Easter holidays in Bavaria, April 9, 2017. Pilgrims and other hikers curious to walk the famous Way of St. James can book a special one-way fare from Lufthansa, making an attractive round trip in combination with a flight to Bilbao.
