Lufthansa has announced several new leisure routes from Munich and Frankfurt for Summer 2021.

Lufthansa has outlined plans to offer ‘the most extensive range of vacation destinations in years’ this summer, with an increase in destinations from both Frankfurt and Munich.

The German flag carrier is adding 20 new routes from Frankfurt as well as 13 new routes from Munich, with a ‘special focus’ on Caribbean, Canary Islands and Greece.

Lufthansa Group said that “Effective vaccines, comprehensive testing services and strict hygiene concepts of airports and airlines are good prerequisites for the resumption, this summer, of long-awaited vacations”.

New summer destinations in Europe from Frankfurt are:

  • Varna, Bulgaria
  • Paphos, Cyprus
  • Rijeka, Croatia
  • Lamezia Terme, Italy
  • Djerba, Tunisia
  • Ponta Delgada, Portugal

And new summer destinations in Europe from Munich are:

  • Jerez, Spain
  • Chania, Greece
  • Mykonos, Greece
  • Kos, Greece
  • Kavalla, Greece
  • Zakynthos, Greece
  • Preveza, Greece

Eurowings Discover, the Lufthansa Group’s new leisure travel-focused airline, will offer 3-weekly flights from Frankfurt to Punta Cana in Dominican Republic, 2-weekly flights from Frankfurt to Mombasa, Kenya with onward flights to Zanzibar in Tanzania and 3-weekly flights from Frankfurt to Anchorage in Alaska.

Flights to Mauritius and Male will both be extended into the summer season, and for those customers planning further ahead, there will be winter flights from Frankfurt to Montego Bay from 1st November, and from Rhein-Main Airport to Varadero from 2nd November.

The group highlighted that all flights booked before 31st May, 2021 will benefit from unlimited changes (after this date one free change is allowed).

Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, said:

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.

Lufthansa recently confirmed that its new buy-on-board service for short and medium-haul economy passengers will be introduced ‘in the course of the summer timetable 2021’.
