Sea-Tac Airport announced on Monday its third new international service this year with news that Lufthansa Airlines will provide daily service between Sea-Tac and Frankfurt, Germany, beginning March 30.

Earlier this year Air France began nonstop service to Paris from Sea-Tac, and Aeromexico began nonstop service from Sea-Tac to Mexico City. "We have been courting Lufthansa for many years," said Port of Seattle Commission President John Creighton.

Lufthansa's service also will allow passengers to make connections to Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and India. Lufthansa's flight between Seattle and Frankfurt will be a daily service aboard a 221-seat Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
