Lufthansa is introducing once-hourly flights on three key European routes.

Starting on 30 March, the airline will operate flights from Frankfurt to Brussels, London Heathrow and Vienna at set times once every hour, although the frequency will be reduced to one flight every two hours during daytime periods with low traffic volume.

The route between the carrier’s main hub and Vienna will be jointly operated with wholly owned subsidiary Austrian Airlines.

The timetable rejig comes after Lufthansa introduced once-hourly flights on the domestic main routes from Frankfurt to Berlin, Hamburg and Munich in October 2012.

Scheduling flights at set times every hour has simplified travel planning and waiting times when passengers missed connecting services, says the airline.
