Lufthansa Airlines launched nonstop Tampa/Frankfurt service Sept. 25, expanding the carrier’s presence in the U.S. to 18 gateways.

The service will run five times a week through Oct. 24, after which it changes to four weekly flights.

Tampa is Lufthansa’s third Florida destination, along with Miami and Orlando.

“We’ve already seen huge growth in international passengers," said Tampa airport CEO Joe Lopano. “This service will allow us to double international traffic compared to 2010,” he said, anticipating that the flights will have an annual economic impact on the region of $97 million and create roughly 680 jobs.

The Airbus A340-300, which is equipped with FlyNet, Lufthansa’s broadband Internet access product, offers a three-class configuration that includes 18 Business Class seats, 19 Premium Economy seats and 261 Economy Class seats.

A round-trip from Tampa to Frankfurt in Economy Class is priced from $999.
