Lufthansa Announces Revived Schedule For June

The Lufthansa Group has announced that it will be expanding its roster of services for June. Back in March, it stated that it would be cutting its flight program by up to 50 percent. However, it said in a statement issued on Thursday that it will be offering 1,800 roundtrips a week by the end of next month serving over 130 destinations on a global scale.

Domestic, European And International Routes Open

The group has also clarified that 106 of these routes will be domestic or inter-European routes. These expanded offerings were opened to travelers via the group’s booking system on Thursday.

This larger roster of services can be booked out of Frankfurt and Munich. The bulk of the group’s international routes will operate out of the former city, which will offer connectivity to Toronto, Mexico City, Tel Aviv, Johannesburg, Dubai and Mumbai, to name a few. Chicago and Los Angeles will be served by services from Munich.

However, it cautions that all long-haul flights may be subject to travel restrictions and all passengers, the group adds, will be asked to cover their mouths and noses during the course of their journeys.

But Not All Within The Group To Fly Just Yet

While some airlines within the Lufthansa Group are set to resume their operations within just a few weeks, other group members are taking a more cautious approach.

For example, Austrian Airlines has opted to extend the suspension of its regular flights until June 7th and Brussels Airlines says that it will not enter into operation again until June 15th, when it will take to the skies with a reduced schedule.

Caution And Consideration Urged Among Plans For Revival

Despite its plans for rebooting its operations, the group has issued cautionary advice to travelers, stating, “When planning their trip, customers should consider the current entry and quarantine regulations of the respective destinations. Throughout the entire trip, restrictions may be imposed due to stricter hygiene and security regulations, for example due to longer waiting times at airport security checkpoints. The catering services on board will also remain restricted until further notice.”

Speaking of the plans to increase its schedule, Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of German Lufthansa AG, said, “With the June flight schedule, we are making an important contribution to the revitalization of the aviation infrastructure. It is an essential part of the German and European economic power. People want to and can travel again, whether on holiday or for business reasons. That’s why we will continue to expand our offer step by step in the coming months and connect Europe with each other and Europe with the world.”
