COVID-19: Lufthansa Group Extends Repatriation Flight Schedule

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Lufthansa Group has extended repatriation flight schedule until 17 May and then reduced further. Originally, the flight schedule was valid until 3 May.

As of today, the additional cancellations for the period between 4 May and 17 May will be implemented successively and passengers will be informed of the changes.

Lufthansa is thus offering an important minimum level of air traffic connections and making a contribution to the provision of basic services.

In view of the low demand, a further reduction of the flight schedule to only 15 weekly long-haul connections is inevitable: 3 times a week each from Frankfurt to Newark and Chicago, Sao Paulo, Bangkok and Tokyo. The three weekly connections to Montreal will be cancelled.

Lufthansa will offer up to 36 daily connections from its Frankfurt hub to the most important cities in Germany and Europe. From Munich, only six daily connections to domestic German cities will be offered from 4 May onwards.

SWISS, too, will continue to offer three weekly flights to Newark (USA) from Zurich and Geneva, in addition to a reduced timetable for flights focusing on selected European cities.

Eurowings will continue to provide basic services from Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Cologne with a skeleton programme, offering domestic German flights and connections to selected European destinations.

Passengers whose flights have been cancelled or who were unable to take their flight can keep their ticket and make a rebooking for a new travel date - by 30 April 2021 at the latest - by 31 August 2020 and, if necessary, a new destination.

If you start your journey before 31 December 2020, you will receive an additional reduction of 50 EUR for the rebooking. This can be obtained in the form of a flight voucher online via the airlines' websites.
