Lufthansa sees increased bookings with Europe easing entry restrictions
Following the news and updates around the COVID-19 pandemic, many airlines were forced to suspend or reduce their daily operations. We have the latest information from airlines and hotels all around the world. Lufthansa is seeing an increased demand in airline bookings, as COVID numbers are getting lower. Lufthansa Group also announced seven additional long-haul tourist connections from Frankfurt and Munich!
Lufthansa sees increased bookings
Like a lot of European countries, Germany is easing entry requirements, resulting in increased bookings for Lufthansa flights! Now, fully vaccinated or recovered passengers do not need to quarantine and no longer need a negative PCR test. However, passengers will still need to upload their vaccination, immunity, or test proof to the Digital Entry Application.
Over the last month, Lufthansa saw a huge increase in bookings for European countries and the USA. According to the official press release from Lufthansa connections to New York, Miami and Los Angeles have had booking increases of up to 300 percent. Because of this, Lufthansa will be increasing the number of flights to and from the USA. The airline will also restart flights to Orlando and Atlanta. The airline intends on further expanding its flight schedule on short notice if demand continues to increase.
Harry Hohmeister, member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG said:
People are craving for vacation and cultural exchange as well as reuniting with their families, friends and business partners – and, in this context, especially for flights between Germany and the USA. Because of the great significance of transatlantic air travel for the global economy, we now need a clear perspective on how travel between the USA and Europe can return on a larger scale. Lower number of infections and a rising rate of vaccinations allow for a cautious increase in transatlantic air travel. Since certain European countries have already made corresponding announcements, Germany also needs a plan for opening up transatlantic air travel.
Lufthansa announces seven new long-haul connections
Lufthansa also announced some interesting plans for the summer of 2022 with additional seven long-haul destinations! These new long-haul destinations will include flights from Frankfurt to Fort Myers, Panama City, Salt Lake City, and Kilimanjaro, and from Munich to Punta Cana, Cancun, and Las Vegas.
