He added: “The extra daily flight represents a 45% increase in capacity between the two cities next summer which is testament to the popularity of Munich and the onward connections Lufthansa offers.”

Announcing the additional frequency Andreas Koester, Senior Director Sales UK, Ireland & Iceland, Lufthansa Group, said: “Dublin is a key destination within the Lufthansa network and is of growing importance. We have increased frequency on both our Munich and Frankfurt services in 2018 due to continued growth in demand.”
