Lufthansa Announces Summer 2021 Route Expansion


Lufthansa has announced its upcoming route plans for the summer of 2021. With the growing worldwide introduction of vaccines, Lufthansa is preparing for travel to quickly ramp up again. "Our leisure travel program for summer 2021 is stronger than ever. We expect many countries to relax travel restrictions towards the summer as more and more people have been vaccinated. We know that demand will increase sharply as soon as travel restrictions are removed - and we are well equipped to meet this with our excellent range of products and offers. There is a great yearning for travel and we believe that the summer months will reflect this,"  CEO of the Deutsche Lufthansa Airline Group, Harry Homeister, said.
