Graz Airport: Scheduled service to Frankfurt returns

Graz is once again connected to the most important German transfer airport since this morning

Feldkirchen/Graz, 31. 05. 2021: Due to the COVID-19 lockdowns, the connection between Graz and Frankfurt was temporarily suspended last autumn. As of today, there are again 4 flights per week between the two cities as a first step. The frequencies are to be increased from July.

Councillor Dr Günter Riegler: "We are delighted that the important connection to the financial and economic metropolis of Frankfurt is being resumed. This secures jobs in Graz in these challenging times and maintains our competitiveness with other competing regions."

CEO DI Wolfgang Malik, CEO of Holding Graz: "I am thrilled with the connection to one of the key hubs and the further positive boost it will give the local economy. Our airport was unfortunately in 'park position' and now we are hopefully transitioning back to climb."

As an important transfer airport for many business and private travellers, Frankfurt was the busiest route for Graz Airport before the coronavirus pandemic," explains Wolfgang Grimus, Managing Director of Graz Airport. "We are very pleased to be able to offer this destination, which is extremely important for the Styrian economy, in our portfolio again. Graz is connected to 100 Lufthansa destinations worldwide via the Frankfurt hub."

Flights are currently on Monday, Friday and Saturday mornings and on Sunday afternoon. Another increase in frequencies is already planned for July.

In addition to Frankfurt, Vienna and Düsseldorf are also currently being served in the scheduled sector. Amsterdam is scheduled to resume in mid-June with KLM and Zurich and Munich flights will be added later this summer.
