Airline to fly directly to Cancún, Malé and Mauritius

Lufthansa is continuing to expand its route network with new and attractive destinations. In the future, the airline will offer direct flights to popular holiday destinations in Mexico, the Maldives and Mauritius. During the winter months, between 8 December 2015 and 11 April 2016, passengers will be able to choose between two weekly flights each from Frankfurt to Cancún, Malé or Mauritius. Flying with an Airbus A340-300 from the Lufthansa hub, passengers will be able to reach sandy beaches and exotic landscapes in comfort.

On board across a total of 298 seats in Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class, passengers can expect the usual high level of Lufthansa comfort with the latest cabin layout across all classes: at the touch of a button, the seats in the new Business Class can be transformed into a comfortable bed with a horizontal lying surface of 1.98 m in length, while increased legroom and a greater seat pitch await those in the recently introduced Premium Economy Class. With the individual in-flight entertainment system, there is a wide range of entertainment on offer for passengers in all travel classes, as well as FlyNet, the wireless broadband Internet.

The flight times of LH 514, LH 704 and LH 708 have been specially selected so as to allow passengers from Germany and Europe, in particular, to benefit from smooth connectionss.

Return flights to Cancún can already be booked from EUR 919, to Malé from EUR 629 and to Mauritius from EUR 799.
