In addition, a service linking London and Berlin will be moved from London City Airport to Heathrow so that Airbus 319 aircraft can be used on the route, increasing capacity by more than 50 per cent, the carrier said.

Other changes include the addition of a third daily flight between Edinburgh and the Berlin. Also, Lufthansa will offer service between Inverness and Dusseldorf from 20 June through 12 September.

Also on the summer timetable are new flights on Lufthansa Italia connecting London Heathrow with Milan Malpensa.

Lufthansa’s general manager for the UK and Ireland, Marianne Sammann, commented: “Despite the suspension of our service between Bristol and Frankfurt, Lufthansa will still have a presence in the South West following the introduction of the new bilateral code sharing between Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines. So, the vast majority of our UK passengers will have more and even better connections to a wide range of destinations.”

She added: “At the same time, our portfolio is growing with the new Lufthansa Italia offer from Heathrow. Bookings for the new service are growing at a rate of well over 1,000% since January, an excellent take up of our now increased offer of six daily flights from London to Milan.”
