Fly to Frankfurt in bigger aircraft from November 3

Pune: Lufthansa would operate a bigger aircraft on the Pune-Frankfurt sector when it resumes operation from the city on November 3, dishing out more seats to flyers.
Airport director Ajay Kumar said, “Lufthansa’s Pune to Frankfurt service will resume from November 3. The new flight will be of enhanced capacity with more seats.”

Confirming the development, a Lufthansa spokesperson said, “An Airbus A319 aircraft will fly on the route from November. Earlier, a Boeing B737 plane was ferrying passengers between the two cities. The new aircraft will have 21 business class and 72 economy class seats. The earlier aircraft had 20 business class seats and 66 economy class seats.”

The Airbus A319 is a member of the Airbus A320 family of short to medium range, narrow body, commercial passenger twin engine airliners manufactured by Airbus. It can carry up to 160 passengers.

Lufthansa is the only foreign airline operating from the city at present. It had suspended its operations on July 29 citing operational and commercial reasons, disappointing many passengers, particularly those coming to Pune from the US. The airline had said in a statement that it was examining various options to resume operations as soon as possible.
