Glasgow - Munich Route ???
From today's Evening Times:
Germany air link planned for Glasgow
Aviation experts believe German national carrier Lufthansa will announce a new route from Glasgow to Munich within days. And it could be opened as early as March.
Glasgow Airport owners BAA Scottish Airports and Lufthansa refused today to confirm or deny the report.
The route will have to compete with Ryanair, which flies to Frankfurt from Prestwick.
Lufthansa will unveil its summer timetable within a week.
Industry sources expect its European regional wing, CityLine, to announce the Glasgow flights.
A daily Munich route would be Glasgow Airport's biggest boost since it announced £60m in airport charge discounts last July.
Glasgow politicians will watch closely to see if BAA can secure the route, highlighted as one of the most important for Scotland by Deputy First Minister Jim Wallace.
Glasgow lost its Lufthansa link with Germany, a key business route, years ago.
City Council, business and tourism leaders have lobbied for its restoration ever since.
A spokesman for council leader Charles Gordon said: "Germany is an extremely important market for Glasgow.
"Munich has tremendous potential as a business and leisure destination."
Two weeks ago the Evening Times revealed low-cost giant Germanwings wanted to launch daily budget flights between Edinburgh and Cologne.
