MUNICH, Germany, 2014-12-3 — /Travel PR News/ — Lufthansa is resuming flights to Florida from its Munich hub. Starting today, the airline will operate five flights a week to the Sunshine State in addition to its daily A380 service from Frankfurt. During the winter months, Miami will be served by LH Flight 460, which will be operated with an Airbus A330-300 in the new First, Business and Economy Class layout, which can accommodate 217 passengers. “We are delighted to be able to offer our passengers our latest product in all travel classes on flights to and from Miami and to provide a high level of travel comfort,” says Thomas Klühr, member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board, Finances & Hub Munich.
Lufthansa’s First Class is synonymous with the ultimate in passenger comfort and service and has already earned a 5-star Skytrax rating. Business Class travellers, meanwhile, can relax in the comfort of a seat that converts into an almost two-meter-long, fully flat bed. The extensive in-flight entertainment program can be viewed on demand on a 15-inch screen at each seat. In Economy Class, the Airbus A330-300 offers the latest generation of Lufthansa’s well-padded eco-seats an integrated monitor and Internet access.
In addition to its superb wide beaches, Miami offers visitors a broad range of tourist attractions, including the Art Deco District, Little Havanna and Coral Gables, which is one of the nation’s most affluent communities. The city is also an ideal starting point for trips to the Everglades and the Florida Keys. Orlando and nearby Cape Canaveral, which is the home of the Kennedy Space Center, are only a few hours’ drive from Miami. With one of the largest cruise ports in the world, Miami is also renowned as the gateway to the Caribbean.
