An airline is expanding the number of routes it operates from Edinburgh after a year of passenger growth.

Lufthansa has announced that it will add a six-times-a-week summer service between the Capital and Dusseldorf, Germany, from March 25 until October 27.

It has also confirmed that it will increase the number of flights on its long-established year-round service between Edinburgh and Frankfurt to twice daily.

In 2011, the airline carried 167,142 passengers to and from Scotland, an increase of 25.5 per cent on 2010.
