Feature

Lufthansa is adding non-stop flights between mainland Europe and Ottawa starting next year. The route will operate in conjunction with Air Canada.

The flights will run between Frankfurt (FRA) and Ottawa (YOW); meanwhile, Air Canada is discontinuing its Frankfurt–Ottawa (YOW) service after Oct. 24.

Lufthansa’s new flight will operate daily except Wednesdays and Fridays. The airline will deploy its 279-seater Airbus A340-300, with business, premium-economy and economy seating.

Lufthansa did not say whether it will fly the Ottawa route year-round. The flight is currently timed to accommodate connections from elsewhere in Europe, plus other destinations.

Other Lufthansa Group members (including Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and SWISS) plan to market the route, with support from other Star Alliance members like Air Canada and Scandinavia’s SAS.

Ottawa will be Lufthansa’s fourth Canadian destination, after Montreal (YUL), Toronto and Vancouver (YVR). Tickets for the new route are on sale now.

FOR THOSE OF US PASSIONATE about wellness pursuits and who feel most at peace close to the sea, there’s nothing quite like the synergy offered by a floating spa integrated into the setting of a luxurious cruise ship. I’m sailing through the Mediterranean from Rome to Barcelona, discovering along the way that the Crystal Life Spa & Beauty Salon on board the Crystal Serenity provides not only the element of high-end indulgence but also the cruise line’s signature commitment to attention and service.

Your Home Away From Home

Tropical Hot Spot

CONSIDERING THAT JUST A LITTLE more than a century ago — 1910, to be exact — Miami’s population was only about 5,400 people, it’s easy to see why this South Florida hot spot has long been considered a boomtown. And the evolution continues to impress as the city gears up to welcome an array of new services, amenities and experiences.

Point of Departure

WHEN IT COMES TO PLACES OF entry and departure, airports are both more common and can have more character than the average cruise port. Port Canaveral, however, near Orlando, Florida, boasts tons of charm to complement the plentiful cruises departing daily.
