According to the Lufthansa Group, there is particularly high demand in the United States of America. In the past week, more tickets were sold than in the same period in 2019.
The airlines are now responding to the demand boom by adding additional flights to the USA at short notice. From November, the airlines Lufthansa and Swiss will offer a total of three daily flights to Miami at short notice.
There is particularly strong demand for flights to the USA for the coming December. The new bookings in the past week for this month were just as high as in the same period in 2019. The New York flights traditionally well booked during the Christmas season have already been supplemented by additional round trips. The airlines of the Lufthansa Group will be offering up to 55 weekly connections to New York from their hubs in December. Another short-term expansion of the range is currently being examined.
Additional flights also within Germany
Due to the growing demand, flights within Germany and to the Lufthansa hubs will also be increased. Compared to July, for example, Lufthansa is increasing its domestic German connections by 45 percent from October. This means, among other things, that from October there will be nine daily connections from Frankfurt to Berlin instead of the current six daily connections and eight daily flights from Frankfurt to Hamburg instead of six daily connections. The situation is similar for Munich: instead of the current five daily connections, from October there will be seven daily connections to Berlin and instead of six daily connections to Hamburg up to eleven daily flights will be in the flight schedule. In the morning and evening from October Lufthansa will again be flying every hour from Hamburg and Berlin to the Frankfurt and Munich hubs.
