Lufthansa Steps Up Flight Schedules For Summer Travels
Due to increase in travel demand, the Lufthansa Group airlines are switching from short-term to longer-term flight planning and are now completing their flight schedules by the end of October.
The new summer timetable was implemented in the booking systems on 29 June, and is thus bookable. It is valid until 24 October, the end of the normal summer season.
This means that the airlines will offer in the upcoming month over 40% of their originally planned flight program.
Over 380 aircraft of Lufthansa Group carriers will be used for this purpose until October. This means that half of the Lufthansa Group's fleet is in the air again, 200 aircraft more than in June.
By the end of October, over 90% of all originally planned short- and medium-haul destinations and over 70% of the Group's long-haul destinations will be served again.
Customers who are now planning their summer and autumn holidays will thus have access to an extensive global network for tourism and business connections via all the Group's hubs.
