Germany's largest airline, Lufthansa, is already removing numerous connections from the 2022/23 winter timetable. The cuts primarily affect domestic German and European traffic, but some long-haul routes are also being reduced.

The carrier informed the sales partners in a circular about the latest adjustments. One of the reasons given by Lufthansa is that they want to “offer passengers a reliable and plannable flight schedule”. Affected passengers are to be informed of any cancellations directly or via their travel agencies.

The Kranich Group does not give any details of how many flights have actually been taken out of the planning. However, it should mainly be about connections for which there are alternative transport options. From Frankfurt and Munich, the offer on long-haul routes will also be reduced in certain areas.

Lufthansa had to cut the 2022 summer flight schedule in several steps due to an acute shortage of staff. This affects both your own group and airports that you have in the route network. The most recent cuts are an indication that one does not expect to get the bottleneck under control over the winter of 2022/23. However, other airlines are also taking many flights out of their planning, because the industry expects that demand could collapse sharply due to high inflation, but also due to possible renewed corona measures.
