Lufthansa Group is consistently continuing the expansion of its tourist-oriented long-haul programme from its hubs in Munich and Frankfurt.
Beginning with the 2020 summer flight schedule, leisure travellers in particular will benefit from attractive new destinations.
The focus is on North American destinations – as of next summer, Lufthansa will be expanding its services to include Las Vegas, Phoenix, Anchorage, Seattle, Orlando and Detroit.
In addition, Bangalore, a destination in Asia is added to the timetable in Munich.
The majority of the flights will operate in cooperation with Eurowings, which will be using a fleet of Airbus A330 aircraft with up to 270 seats.
Eurowings will already be present at Germany’s largest hub in Frankfurt beginning with the 2019/2020 winter flight schedule that goes into effect in late October, offering flights to the popular holiday islands of Barbados and Mauritius as well as to Las Vegas and Windhoek.
From Munich, Eurowings has been offering long-haul connections to selected tourist destinations since Summer 2018.
“Lufthansa Group is significantly increasing its commitment at the Munich hub and continuing its expansion to a hub for Asia with the addition of Bangalore,” says Harry Hohmeister, member of the executive board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and chief commercial officer Network Airlines.
“At the same time, Lufthansa Group is one of Europe’s largest providers of holiday travel. Demand in this area in particular is rising sharply.
“We will therefore be expanding our long-haul programme from Munich and Frankfurt in cooperation with Eurowings in addition to the offers that have already been planned for fall 2019.
“Lufthansa’s feeder flights and the Frankfurt and Munich hubs will make it even easier for our passengers to reach the most beautiful places in the world in future.”
Lufthansa will support the marketing of the new Eurowings long-haul destinations with its global sales strength and with high-quality service processes on the ground.
“With the new 2020 summer destinations from Munich and Frankfurt, we are demonstrating once more how we combine the strengths of the two airlines to the benefit of our customers,” says Thorsten Dirks, member of the executive board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and chief executive officer of Eurowings.
“With a product range tailored to holidaymakers and families and with a fresh, modern, innovative on-board product from Eurowings – supported by Lufthansa’s marketing and sales power.
“This superb line-up allows us to position Lufthansa Group in the growing long-haul tourist market.”
