Lufthansa anticipates a significant increase in its passengers’ leisure travel appetite during the summer of 2021 and meets their expectations by introducing fifteen new international routes from Frankfurt.

These new travel options are being offered throughout Europe, Asia and Africa and are currently available for booking with these services adding to its already large offering of flights.

The fifteen new destinations include many Greek destinations such as; Corfu, Chania/Crete, Mykonos, Kos, Kavala/Thrace and Preveza/Peloponnese as well as Spain; Jerez de la Frontera, Canary Islands and Tenerife, Egypt; Hurghada, Cyprus; Paphos, Croatia; Rijeka, Italy; Lamezia Terme, Tunisia; Djerba and Bulgaria; Varna.

The departure and arrival times of the new destinations out of Frankfurt are well aligned with Lufthansa international flights from North America, whereby connecting passengers will be able to transfer with ease.

Departures are scheduled for the early morning hours and return flights to Frankfurt depart in the evening.

“Vacation and leisure travel are expected to play an increasingly important role. Lufthansa is listening to its customers and reacting with many new European and Mediterranean summer destinations in 2021,” said Frank Naeve, Vice President Sales, The Americas, Lufthansa Group.

Lufthansa has been strategic and actively shaping the future of tourism and leisure travel Offering approximately 70 weekly connections to 29 leisure destinations – 15 more destinations compared to the same time period last year.
