The company explained that “this important increase in frequencies comes after a very positive balance of the first year of operation of the route”. According to Aena, during the first 12 months after its inauguration at the beginning of November 2017, Lufthansa has transported more than 38,000 passengers between Pamplona and Frankfurt.
According to Lufthansa, this “good reception” by Navarran travelers, together with the “high average occupation of the route”, has driven him to increase “so significantly” his operations between Pamplona and Frankfurt.

“The excellent reception we have received from all Navarre makes us not only keep betting on this route, but substantially increase our operations to provide even more and better connections between Pamplona and our destinations around the world,” he said.
