Airlines Lufthansa to open 15 new routes from Frankfurt in 2021
Germany´s largest carrier Lufthansa has announced, that it plans to add 15 new routes from Frankfurt in 2021.
Lufthansa has announced, that for the upcoming summer 2021, it will add a total of 15 additional destinations from its main hub at Frankfurt. This decision is part of the airline´s tourism and leisure destination strategy.
The focus has been put on Greece, where the airline is offering flights from Frankfurt to Corfu, Chania/Crete, Mykonos, Kos, Kavala/Thrace and Preveza/Peloponnese. In addition, Lufthansa will continue fly to Spanish destinations Jerez de la Frontera, Canary Islands and Tenerife. The other new routes from FRA will be Hurghada in Egypt, Paphos in Cyprus, Rijeka in Croatia, Lamezia Terme in Italy, Djerba in Tunisia and Varna in Bulgaria.
Harry Hohmeister, member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG commented: "Never before have we included so many new vacation destinations in our program. This is our response to the wishes of our customers. The demand for vacation and leisure trips is recovering much faster than that for business trips. With Lufthansa, we already have a great and longstanding deal of expertise in tourist offers and we are now resolutely expanding this as part of our strategy."
To ensure smooth route operations, Lufthansa will deploy five additional aircraft at Frankfurt, which will allow the airline to operate around 70 weekly connections to 29 tourist destinations. Compared to last year, Lufthansa is set to offer 15 more holiday destinations.
Flights to the new destinations are now bookable and most of the flights can be rebooked when purchased this year. Most of the operations in start at the beginning of April 2021, May 2021 or from the end of March 2021.
This latest offensive in opening new routes underlines Lufthansa´s ambitions to return to normal operations as fast as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments are continuing to loosen travel restrictions for passengers, and this allows airlines to resume more and more services.
