I came across a press release from Lufthansa that I found to be really interesting and also a bit funny.
Lufthansa Group was curious to find out how many Austrians and Germans had never been to New York City so they asked a leading opinion research institute.
The numbers were overwhelming:
- 82% of Austrians had never been to NY
- 92% of Germans had never been to NY
Lufthansa wants to help change this.
Starting July 2, Lufthansa Group (Austrian, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa & SWISS) will increase its frequency to the NY region.
When I started to read the press release, I figured they would be adding lots of flights and offering great deals to NY. Boy was I wrong. They will be increasing frequencies to NY from 12 to 13 daily flights. (The one flight being added will be Austrian Airlines connecting Vienna and Newark with a daily nonstop service.)
I guess one extra flight per day is a pretty big increase in percentage for flights per day but will it really help to get more Austrians & Germans to visit NY?
Check out the Lufthansa Group’s press release here.
FYI- Kim and I went to Austria 8 years back. I first went to Germany around 7 years ago. In 2013 Kim, Lucas and I visited Germany. (I almost forgot- we are all from NY, well Kim was born in NJ- close enough I guess!)
