The German airline Lufthansa on Wednesday announced plans to add a new direct flight between Frankfurt and Thessaloniki every Friday and Sunday, starting on October 28. Tickets for the new flight are already on sale at travel agents and via the airline’s website Lufthansa.com.

“Thessaloniki has made major progress as a tourist destination. In addition to its character as a city, its culture, gastronomy and entertainment, it is also an ideal starting point for hiking and exploration in northern Greece and a passage for southeast Halkidiki,” said Lufthansa Group head of sales for Greece and Cyprus, Constantinos Tzevelekos.

Two more airlines in the Lufthansa group, Austrian Airlines and Eurowings, will offer flights from Thessaloniki to popular destinations in Germany and Austria this winter.
