A Five-Star option for Silicon Valley

Lufthansa has brought back its non-stop service between San Jose, California and Frankfurt giving international travelers another flight option from the Bay Area to Europe, and beyond. And it’s especially convenient for those traveling to/from Silicon Valley.

  • LH489* SJC-FRA 3:05pm – 11:10am (the next day)
  • LH488* FRA-SJC 10:40am – 1:20pm 

SJC advantages over SFO

Most Bay Area travelers automatically think SFO when planning an international trip. But here are some reasons why Lufthansa’s SJC-FRA flight might be a better option:

  • Flight times allow for great connections to destinations throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and is ideally timed for connections to/from India
  • SJC is an easy airport to get in and out of with little to no ATC delays
  • No other long-haul international flight is arriving at the same time
  • Avoid the traffic between Silicon Valley and SFO
  • Lufthansa partners with TSA Pre-check, available at SJC

Europe’s only Five-Star Airline

Flying with Lufthansa also means flying with the first airline outside of Asia (and one of only ten in the world) to receive a Five-Star certification from the aviation research specialist, Skytrax.
