And then there were 8, and 16, and all 3 — top 5 RDU welcomes Lufthansa

Earlier this month, RDU announced that Lufthansa would be our newest carrier, and RDU-Frankfurt would be our next international and transatlantic flight.

Since February 2023, RDU has announced more than 20 new destinations; when the Frankfurt flight launches this coming June, we will have eight international flights and 16 airlines.

Frankfurt will be the longest flight from RDU, with a distance of over 4000 miles. The service will run 5 days a week beginning on June 6, 2024. Read more about the flight — and our growing connections to all 3 worldwide airline alliances — in this week’s blog.

You can visit the normal train schedule on their website and our quick summary of the normal Triangle area train schedule serving Durham, Cary, and Raleigh.
