Lufthansa has announced its summer schedule for 2013 beginning on March 31 that includes five new holiday destinations: Mahón, Jerez de la Frontera, Cardiff, Glasgow and Varna.
In the long-haul segment, Lufthansa is launching a new service from Munich to Vancouver in addition to the existing connection from Frankfurt, while from July, passengers in Europe will experience the new product and fare concept for Germanwings, which will gradually take over Lufthansa’s point-to-point routes, except Frankfurt and Munich.
In addition, Lufthansa will increase its summer direct flights from its main hubs Frankfurt and Munich to Cyprus to nine weekly (six per week to/from Frankfurt and three to/from Munich).
Lufthansa had suspended flights to and from Frankfurt during the winter.
This summer, vacationers will benefit from a further six new connections to holiday regions around the Mediterranean, rising further in July and August. Passengers who wish to book a flight to one of the tourist destinations plus a hotel and a rental car can do so through the holiday portal www.lufthansaholidays.com.
Lufthansa is also speeding up the retrofit of its new Business Class cabin. It is already installed on all recently delivered Boeing 747-8s and on three Airbus A330 aircraft. The airline is investing a further 50 mln euros to convert all its aircraft by summer 2015.
To date, Lufthansa has equipped 88 aircraft, and thus virtually its entire long-haul fleet, with FlyNet, its broadband Internet service. The only exceptions are a few Boeing 747-8s and Airbus A380s, and next year these aircraft types are also due to be equipped with the innovative technology. FlyNet is now available almost worldwide and includes the “Sport 24” channel, while passengers can also check the status of their connecting flight on the portal or check in while they are still in the air.
