Travel Demand: Lufthansa Sees Strong Bookings to Africa
Lufthansa is recording a sharp rise in intercontinental and intra-European bookings for the upcoming Christmas and New Year travel season.
Last week, up to 400% more people booked destinations overseas as well as Southern and Northern Europe than in the previous week.
Particularly in demand are flights to Africa including Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa, and Namibia in Windhoek.
The Canary Islands, Madeira and sunny destinations in the Mediterranean, and snow-assured areas in Northern Finland are also seeing increased booking.
Lufthansa is responding to the increased demand with new flights to and from destinations in Europe, but also by increasing the frequency of existing connections at favorable conditions.
Lufthansa now flies from Frankfurt and Munich to almost every island in the Canary Islands and will launch non-stop flights from Frankfurt to the islands of La Palma and Fuerteventura from 19 December. Seville and Palermo will also be back in the flight schedule from Frankfurt and Munich.
From Frankfurt, Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete, which can also boast significantly warmer temperatures in winter, is also on the program.
In addition to the classic sunny destinations, the snow-assured and spectacular ski resorts in Northern Finland are back in the flight schedule. Thus one reaches over the holidays from Frankfurt Ivalo and Kuusamo as well as from Munich Kittilä.
Capacities have been significantly expanded for flights from Frankfurt to Majorca, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Madeira, Malta, Larnaca/Cyprus, and Faro/Algarve and from Munich to Majorca, Faro/Algarve, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, and Tenerife.
In addition, Dublin, Gdansk, Salzburg, Turin, and Naples will be served from Frankfurt. Flights from Munich now also include Paris, Madrid, Helsinki, Athens, Rome, Oslo, Warsaw and Lisbon.
