High-flying Calgary lures Lufthansa
Airline relaunches daily, non-stop service to Frankfurt
Gina Teel, Calgary Herald
Published: Tuesday, April 15, 2008
Lufthansa's new, daily non-stop service from Frankfurt to Calgary touched down ahead of schedule at the Calgary International Airport Monday, with the inaugural flight greeted on the tarmac by two red fire trucks blasting ceremonial arcs of water over the Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

Inside the terminal, Jens Bischof, Lufthansa's vice-president, the Americas, said the flight represents an important milestone for the airline -- the return of a daily, three-cabin aircraft to the Canadian market.

Lufthansa last offered a Frankfurt-to-Calgary service in the 1980s, but the airline -- along with several others -- pulled out during the bust, as passenger air travel plummeted.
