BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Thursday April 4, 2019 – Barbados is expanding its reach in Germany with a new thrice-weekly direct flight from Frankfurt to the Grantley Adams International Airport.

Flight LH 5432, which is scheduled to commence on Monday, October 28, 2019, will run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays using an A330 aircraft which seats up to 330 passengers.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI), William ‘Billy’ Griffith, said his organization will be looking to capitalize on the extra seats the partnership will bring.
