COVID-19: Lufthansa Group Extends Returnee Flight Schedule
Due to the continuing COVID-19 related travel restrictions, Lufthansa has extend its returnee flight schedule until 3 May. The flights were originally scheduled to run until 19 April.
This means that all remaining flights of the original flight schedule between 25 April and 3 May will be cancelled. Flights which were planned to operate until 24 April were cancelled at an earlier date.
As of 2 April,2020, the route cancellations will be implemented successively and the passengers affected will be informed of the changes.
Lufthansa will thus continue to offer an urgently needed basic service. A total of 18 weekly long-haul flights are scheduled: three times a week each from Frankfurt to Newark and Chicago, Montreal, Sao Paulo, Bangkok and Tokyo. Flights to Johannesburg were cancelled by 16 April due to official regulations.
In addition, the airline still offers around 50 daily connections from its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich to the most important cities in Germany and Europe.
SWISS, too, will in future offer three weekly long-haul services a week to Newark (USA) from Zurich and Geneva, in addition to a substantially reduced short- and medium-haul timetable focusing on selected European cities.
