The Lufthansa Group with its subsidiaries — Eurowings and SWISS — has outlined new operational plans for the Month of June. The German airline group intends will be offering monthly restart schedules to significantly more destinations in Germany and Europe than in the past few weeks, according to report.
The Lufthansa Group has announced that it will end its schedule of repatriation flights from the 31st of May onwards, However, Moving forward, the german group says “A total of 80 aircraft will be reactivated with the “June timetable”.This means that From 1 June, 160 aircraft will be in service with the Group’s passenger airlines as against the previously valid repatriation flight, which is just with only 80 aircraft. Also, the airline says that these aircraft will fly to only 106 destinations.
The giant german Group’s airlines are, however, responding to the increasing interest of customers in air travel, following the gradual easing of restrictions and limitations in the German federal states and entry regulations of other countries in Europe.
Harry Hohmeister, a Member of the Executive Board of German Lufthansa AG, stated that:
“We sense a great desire and longing among people to travel again. Hotels and restaurants are slowly opening, and visits to friends and family are in some cases being allowed again. With all due caution, we are now making it possible for people to catch up and experience what they had to do without for a long time.”
No doubt, it will still likely take a while before we see Lufthansa — and obviously other airlines– return to its pre-crisis size. Additionally, the airline has said that several aircraft, such as six Airbus A380s, won’t fly again. Also, the airline’s stated that the obligation to wear a mouth-nose cover on board, which was introduced on the 4th of May, has been very positively received and accepted by guests. As its re-instate, its commitment to keeping everybody onboard safe; the airline also noted that customers will continue to be asked to wear a mask during the entire journey.
