The Friday service will depart at 07.05, with an 08.00 arrival in Dublin, and depart again at 08.30 and arrive in Lubeck at 11.25.
Commenting as they announced their new routes, the Lübeck Air Managing Director, Jürgen Friedel told the German media, “We are pleased to be able to offer our passengers an expanded range of services from Lübeck for 2022, despite the challenges of the industry and the general situation. Our goal for 2022 is to convince many passengers of our exclusive tourist offer in addition to the regular guests we have already won. We are sure that after the long winter months, the summer perspective, with the beautiful new destinations that are unique for Lübeck, will be well received. When choosing another aircraft, as with our ATR 72-500, we rely on an economical aircraft that is in line with our environmentally conscious holistic service concept and offers an attractive product for our guests.”
The airline started operations in August 2020 with a route between Stuttgart and Munich on behalf of Air Ailse of Denmark. The airlines current fleet is just one ATR 72 aircraft but they expect to expand next year with the addition possibly an Embraer Regional jet.
