First Lufthansa flights to Rzeszów in Poland
Direct from Frankfurt to southeastern Poland from summer 2009
Lufthansa is extending its route network in Poland by adding Rzeszów to its summer timetable 2009. From 27 April 2009, the Lufthansa CityLine regional airline subsidiary will begin operating five flights weekly on the Frankfurt-Rzeszów route with a Bombardier CRJ700.
Rzeszów is an important economic and cultural centre in southeastern Poland. Located in the Carpathian foothills, and near the border with Ukraine and Slovakia, the City has become a major communication hub, attracting a number of companies and investors to set up bases there. Aside from the aviation industry, the City is home to automotive components and mechanical engineering firms. Alongside its business importance, Rzeszów is a major academical centre. It hosts diverse universities providing education to a current 70,000 students, principally in aviation studies and electrical engineering.

With their addition to the network, we will be offering our customers fast and convenient connections to eight Polish cities in different regions,” said Karl-Ulrich Garnadt, Executive Vice President Services and Human Resources Lufthansa Passenger Airlines. “Only a few months ago, Lufthansa augmented the existing connection ex Munich to Poznan by laying on flights there from Frankfurt as well, giving Lufthansa passengers a choice of more than 200 weekly connections to Germany’s neighbouring country.
