The figures also show that almost three-quarters of Lufthansa passenger from Dublin are taking advantage of the quick and easy onward connections to the airline’s worldwide network through the Frankfurt and Munich hubs.

Announcing the figures, Christian Schindler, Lufthansa’s General Manager UK & Ireland, said: “Once again Dublin has proved to be a key market for Lufthansa within our network. It reinforces our belief that discerning travellers still prefer the added value they receive from a full service airline. They know when they book with Lufthansa that the price they pay includes the ability to take hand-luggage on board and check in one piece of baggage, assigned seats, good quality food and drink on board the aircraft, and the option to check-in online or at the airport with no hidden extra cost.

“We will continue to offer our Dublin passengers the shortest possible onward connection times to our worldwide network through our hubs of Frankfurt and Munich. In 2013 the most popular onward destinations for Dublin travellers included Moscow, Kiev, Tel Aviv, Lagos, Sofia, Beijing, Caracas, Tokyo, Zagreb, Cairo, Graz and Minsk.”

Overall more than 104 million passengers flew with airlines in the Lufthansa Group last year. In total, Lufthansa, Germanwings, Swiss and Austrian Airlines carried a million more passengers between January and December than in the previous year.
