You will be able to fly nonstop from Salt Lake City to Germany from 2022

SALT LAKE CITY – Soon you’ll be able to fly non-stop from Salt Lake City International Airport to one of Germany’s largest cities.

The Lufthansa Group on Thursday announced a handful of new international flights it will add next year, including three nonstop flights per week between Salt Lake City and Frankfurt, Germany. The service will be provided by low-cost leisure travel airline Eurowings from May 2022.

The group’s announcement was a big step forward for the future of the airport after opening its new terminals last year. Salt Lake City had nonstop flights to London, Paris and Amsterdam, as well as flights to the Canadian cities of Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver, but all were interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Delta plans to resume flights to Amsterdam starting next week, as non-stop international travel options slowly return. That and flights to the Mexican cities of Cancun, Guadalajara, Los Cabos, Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta are listed as the non-stop international flights from Salt Lake City available from June of this year, according to public documents from the airport.

There are more options on the way not only as post-pandemic life begins to emerge, but also thanks to airport upgrades. Salt Lake City Airport Manager Bill Wyatt told KSL NewsRadio on Thursday that the old airport made it impossible to expand new airlines that were already there, but that hurdle is now lifted with the upgrades. airport level.

“We now have these wonderful new international gates and arrival facilities, and I think that’s just the start,” he said.

Wyatt added that it is also hoped to add flights to cities in Asia and Latin America in the near future.

The Lufthansa Group also announced new Eurowings flights from Munich to Las Vegas from 2022 in new flights revealed on Thursday.

The company’s announcement comes as airline interest begins to heat up after travel was decimated by the economic impacts of COVID-19.

US Travel’s April 29 report estimates that American travelers spent nearly $ 70 billion on travel expenses in March 2021, a significant increase from previous months, but still down from levels of March 2019. It also revealed that 72% of American travelers at that time were planning a summer getaway, up from 37% at the same time last year.
