Aberdeen Beach Aberdeen business leaders say new direct flights to the city from Frankfurt have opened up international business tourism opportunities.
 
Air carrier Lufthansa has begun three daily flights between Frankfurt in Germany and Aberdeen, opening up opportunities for European delegates to fly to the north-east in just two hours.
 
Aberdeen Convention Bureau’s Sales and Marketing Manager Alesia du Plessis said the increased connectivity was beneficial to delegates travelling to events as well as organisers keen to utilise the north-east’s unique venues, castles and distilleries.
 
“Aberdeen is a strong contender in terms of business tourism and Aberdeen Convention Bureau is constantly out there raising the profile of the city, which has great connections to all of the major hubs,” she said.
 
“New air routes such as the direct service between Aberdeen and Frankfurt opens up the opportunities for meeting and event planners who are looking for a compact but major city which has so much to offer, with historic castles, unique venues and world-class golf courses on its doorstep.
 
“Developments such as the Trump golf resort, new international hotel brands and increased connectivity mean we can welcome a bigger share of the global meetings and conference market.”
