Lufthansa City Airlines to start service from June 26

NEW DELHI: German major Lufthansa will on June 26 launch its newest group carrier — Lufthansa City Airlines — with the first flight from Munich to Birmingham. Lufthansa City Airlines is fully integrated into the feeder network of the Lufthansa hubs in Frankfurt and Munich. The airline is initially launching its flight program from Munich to European and German domestic destinations such as Birmingham, Hanover and Düsseldorf.
While the airline is taking off with aircraft from the A320 family, the parent airline has ordered 40 brand-new Airbus A220-300 type with a further 20 purchase options. As its fleet grows, Lufthansa City Airlines will add further destinations in Europe to its network and gradually expand it.
“Lufthansa City Airlines is contributing to the future viability of the hubs in Munich and Frankfurt. We are looking forward to new modern Airbus A220 and A320neo deliveries in the coming years. For our guests and employees, we are driving forward our renewal and thus strengthening Lufthansa’s planned growth in long-haul traffic,” said Jens Fehlinger, Lufthansa City Airlines MD (operations).
“From April 24, 2024, guests will be able to book their tickets on feeder services for Lufthansa as well as for direct flights between Munich and numerous destinations. It will then also be possible to book the offered routes under flight numbers with the new airline code “VL” via the familiar Lufthansa Group sales channels,” Lufthansa group said in a statement.
