Germany's largest airline Lufthansa plans to expand its 2010-2011 winter offerings to include more seats and new destinations, the company said on Monday.

More than 12,200 flights per week – 3.5 percent more than the previous schedule – will be available to passengers, who will also enjoy 9.1 percent more seats, Lufthansa announced.

“Above all the new, larger regional planes, along with our new flagship (Airbus) A380 are contributing to the growth in capacity,” Lufthansa board member Karl Ulrich Garnadt said.

Planes will also be taking off and landing at their destinations more frequently, the airline said.

Three new destinations include Bogota (Colombia), Pointe-Noire (Republic of the Congo) and Luxemburg – making a total of 197 in 85 countries.

The new winter flight plan will be valid from October 31 to March 2011.

Lufthansa subsidiaries Austrian Airlines, bmi, Brussels Airlines und Swiss International Air Lines will also offer new destinations and flight times beginning on the same day, taking total offerings to 258 destinations in 107 countries, the airline added.
