From October 27, 2024, the Frankfurt hub will again be served directly from Innsbruck. Air Dolomiti, on behalf of Deutsche Lufthansa, takes over the route with up to two daily flights. This comes after a temporary interruption due to capacity bottlenecks at Lufthansa.

The reintroduction of this connection is good news for Innsbruck Airport and its passengers, as Frankfurt is one of the important international hubs accessible from Innsbruck, along with Vienna, Munich, Amsterdam and London. According to airport managing director Marco Pernetta, this is the result of intensive and constructive discussions with Deutsche Lufthansa.

The flight connection is offered up to twice a day: a daily flight from Monday to Sunday and an additional flight four days a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday). This significantly improves Tyrol's international connections, which is an important location factor for the region.

Innsbruck Airport hopes that flights can continue beyond the winter to ensure continuity of international accessibility. According to Pernetta, operational difficulties such as the lack of staff at Frankfurt Airport, which had previously led to the suspension of flights, should be a thing of the past.
