Lufthansa launches new route to Bursa, Turkey


Lufthansa is introducing a new service to Bursa in western Turkey on 1 August 2010. The city will then become the fourth destination in Turkey after Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir to be served direct from Germany by Lufthansa.



The new route will initially be operated from Munich with an Airbus A319. From September, a CityLine Embraer E95 will be deployed. "Bursa is one of the biggest growth markets in Turkey. For business travellers, Lufthansa is thus offering an additional direct flight to an important economic and tourist region," said Thomas Klühr, Group Representative and Head of Hub Management Munich.


The launch of the new service to Bursa brings to ten the number of new destinations Lufthansa has added to its flight network from Munich. This summer, Lufthansa customers will thus have a choice of 117 destinations in 44 countries.


Bursa is the fourth-largest city in Turkey, with a population of about three million. Renowned corporations, including numerous companies in the automobile industry, the machine manufacturing sector and the textile processing and manufacturing industry, have set up branches in this part of western Turkey. The region around Bursa also has many tourist attractions. The nearby Uludag Mountains are famous for their hot springs and numerous spa resorts, including Uludag, the largest and most popular winter sports centre in Turkey.


The round-trip fare from Munich to Bursa starts at 99 euros. This price applies to Economy Class and includes all taxes, fees and the Lufthansa Ticket Service Charge of 10 euros if the booking is made online at
