Wow! Better book your Lufthansa flight from Europe to USA now
- About a week after the planned end of travel restrictions in the United States, the Lufthansa Group
airlines are experiencing a new boom in flights to the United States. On some
days last week, transatlantic flights tripled during the
a week before.
- Demand last week on some routes almost reached before the crisis
levels. Flights with SWISS from Zurich and Lufthansa from Frankfurt to New York
and from Frankfurt and Zurich to Miami recorded the highest bookings of the two
and business travelers.
- In Premium Economy, Business and First Class, more tickets to the United States were purchased than during the same period in 2019.
Lufthansa Group responds to boom in pent-up demand by launching new
flights to the United States on short notice. Lufthansa and SWISS, for example, will offer a combined total of three daily flights to Miami on short notice from
There is a very high demand for flights to the USA for the month of December. New
last week’s bookings for this month were as high as they were for 2019 for
the same period. Flights to New York – traditionally in high demand during
the Christmas season – have already been strengthened by additional connections.
Lufthansa Group airlines offer up to 55 weekly connections to
New York from their various European hubs in Austria, Belgium, Germany and
Switzerland in December. A further short-term expansion of services is currently
in the study.
Only to New York and Chicago, the airlines of the Lufthansa group offer more daily connections from Europe in November than flights to the entire Asia-Pacific region.
Lufthansa Group expects US opening to vaccinated travelers from EU
will be a signal to other countries and regions to re-facilitate international air travel and remove travel restrictions.
Additional flights also within Germany
Lufthansa Group is also increasing German domestic flights to its European hubs
as demand for US flights continues to skyrocket. For example, compared to July,
Lufthansa increases its domestic flights in Germany by 45% from
October. This means, among other things, that from October there will be nine instead of six daily flights from Frankfurt to Berlin. Flights from Frankfurt to Hamburg will be reduced from six to eight daily flights. The situation is similar for Munich:
The current five daily connections to Berlin will be increased to seven from
October; instead of six daily flights from Munich to Hamburg, there will be up to
11 daily flights in the future. And from October also, Lufthansa will again operate hourly flights from Hamburg and Berlin to its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich in the morning and evening.
With the expansion of flight schedules, more connections are available throughout the
daytime. This means that business travelers who often wish to fly in the morning or
the evening will benefit from an improved flight schedule just like other travelers.
