We need a clear perspective for travel to the United States now
The number of infections is decreasing as travel restrictions are lifted in many countries, and as a result, the demand for Lufthansa Group airline tickets is increasing dramatically.
- Demand for flights in the United States increases by up to 300%
- Demand also triples for European holiday destinations
- Travelers continue to enjoy full booking flexibility and security
In many parts of the world, more and more people are being vaccinated. The number of infections is falling as travel restrictions are lifted in many countries.
German entry rules were also adjusted just a few days ago. For example, the quarantine rules no longer apply to people who may present a negative Corona test when returning from a risk area. 72-hour PCR tests and 48-hour antigen tests are now accepted.
Accordingly, the demand for Lufthansa Group plane tickets are increasing dramatically.
For example, in the past two weeks, the demand for summer flights to the United States has been much higher than in previous months. Connections to New York, Miami and Los Angeles have seen booking increases of up to 300%. As a result, the airlines of the Lufthansa Group are further increasing the number of flights to and from the United States from June and again serving attractive destinations such as Orlando and Atlanta.
Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Management Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG said:
âPeople crave vacations and cultural exchanges as well as reuniting with family, friends and business partners – and, in this context, especially for flights between Germany and the United States. Due to the great importance of transatlantic air travel to the global economy, we now need a clear perspective on how travel between the United States and Europe can scale up. A decrease in the number of infections and an increase in the vaccination rate allows a cautious increase in transatlantic air travel. Since some European countries have already made the corresponding announcements, Germany also needs a plan to open up transatlantic air transport. “
