Lufthansa Group plans beefed up schedule for June

By Rick Lundstrom

Lufthansa, Eurowings and SWISS International Airlines will be offering monthly flight schedules to more destinations in Germany and Europe starting in June.

A total of 80 aircraft will be reactivated within the June timetable, said Lufthansa Group in a statement today. This means that a total of 106 destinations will be served in the coming month. Starting June 1, 160 of the Group’s passenger aircraft will be in service. The previously valid repatriation flight schedule was calculated to be flown using only 80 aircraft.

“The Lufthansa Group's airlines are responding to the growing interest of customers for air travel in light of the gradual easing of restrictions and limitations of the German federal states and the easing of entry regulations of other European countries,” said Lufthansa Group.

"We sense a great desire and longing among people to travel again. Hotels and restaurants are slowly opening, and visits to friends and family are in some cases being allowed again. With all due caution, we are now making it possible for people to catch up and experience what they had to do without for a long time. It goes without saying that the safety and health of our guests and employees are of the highest priority," says Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of German Lufthansa AG.

Starting in June, destinations such as Mallorca, Sylt, Rostock and Crete will once again be accessible with LHG. Further details of the "June flight schedule" will be published within the coming week.

Customers are asked to take the current entry and quarantine regulations of the respective destinations into account when planning their trip. Throughout the entire trip, restrictions may be imposed due to stricter hygiene and security regulations due to longer waiting times at airport security checkpoints. The catering services on board will also remain restricted until further notice.

The obligation to wear a mouth-nose cover on board introduced by the airlines of the Lufthansa Group on 4 May, has been very positively received and accepted by passengers.

Passengers will be asked to wear a mask during the entire journey.
