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.

Frontier Airlines to Begin Temperature Checks June 1

As states allow visitors again and travel picks up, airlines are starting to prepare for an influx in passengers by increasing cleaning schedules, preparing aircraft for flight and even taking the temperatures of passengers before boarding the plane.  

The Perfect Fit

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States. InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG) goes above and beyond to create opportunities for this segment with its IHG® Business Edge program, voted Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program in Global Traveler’s 2019 GT Tested Reader Survey awards.
