Lufthansa, Eurowings and Swiss Air Lines will restart a number of services to domestic and European destinations from June after seeing a growing interest in air travel by its passengers. The Lufthansa Group, the parent company of those three airlines in addition to numerous others, will bring 80 aircraft back into service.

This means that from June 1, a total of 160 aircraft will be operating to 106 destinations, doubling the previous schedule, which had seen 80 aircraft operating the repatriation flight schedule. Those repatriation flights will conclude on May 31.

“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. It goes without saying that the safety and health of our guests and employees are of the highest priority,” says Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of German Lufthansa AG.

Holiday destinations such as Mallorca, Spain; Sylt, Germany; Rostock, Germany and Crete, Greece will be part of the new routes available to travelers after some of the restrictions within Germany and neighboring countries became relaxed.

The announcement will bring some relief to many across the European travel and tourism industries, with the gradual rebuilding of flying programs allowing revenue once again flow through the businesses that have been heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. This includes the Lufthansa Group, which is set to receive an 11 billion euro ($11.9 Billion) bailout package by a number of governments that play host to its subsidiary airlines.

The June schedule is due to be published over the next week.
