Lufthansa Drops Guangzhou In Favour Of Shenyang, Qingdao

Lufthansa has announced changes to its flying network in China. The German carrier will resume service to Shenyang (which it last served in 2009) with a new flight from Frankfurt and add Qingdao to its global network. The existing Frankfurt – Guangzhou service will also be canceled and the aircraft redeployed to support the new route.


3 Times Weekly Frankfurt – Shenyang – Qingdao

Operated by a 266-seat Airbus A340-300, flight LH 784 departs Frankfurt at 2215 hrs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, arriving in Shenyang at 1430 hrs the next day before departing at 1550 hrs for Qingdao, landing in the port city at 1725 hrs. The return flight, LH 785, takes off from Qingdao Liuting International Airport at 2105 hrs, arriving in Shenyang at 2245 hrs prior to its 0015 hrs departure the following day to Frankfurt, where it lands at Frankfurt International Airport at 0530 hrs in the morning.


End of Nonstop Frankfurt – Guangzhou Service

Lufthansa’s decision to discontinue its 3 times weekly Frankfurt – Guangzhou (LH 786/787) service from 26 March 2012 signals the end of nonstop flights between both cities. Travellers will have to transit at a major hub city, with Hong Kong and Bangkok being the nearest options to connect with a Lufthansa flight.


When the new service begins operations, Lufthansa will offer 55 flights each week to 6 destinations within the Greater China region, including Beijing, Hong Kong, Nanjing, Qingdao, Shanghai and Shenyang.
