Lufthansa restarts Munich-Tehran flight

Lufthansa is flying non-stop once again from Munich to Tehran.

Starting Monday, the connection under flight number LH 602 will begin three times a week at 22:10, arriving at the Iranian capital at 05:20, UK-based travel industry news provider Breaking Travel News reported.

The Airbus A330-300 offers Lufthansa passengers the latest cabin facilities, including premium economy with 21 seats.

With this new connection, the Lufthansa Group is expanding its daily offer with a Boeing B747-400 from Frankfurt.

Moreover, Austrian Airlines is currently flying up to twice a week from Vienna with an Airbus A320.

“Due to increasing business relations, we are expecting a significantly higher demand in the future. Iran has also gained greater significance with culture tourists,” said Thomas Winkelmann, chief executive of Lufthansa Munich hub.

The connection between Munich and Tehran was last offered from spring 2004 to summer 2006.

The Iranian capital is situated at an altitude of around 1,100 meters above sea-level and boasts a wealth of attractions.

The high altitude and temperate climate provide clear technical benefits, while its geographical location offers more direct routings on flights between Europe and Southeast Asia.

The metropolis has about 10 million inhabitants.
