Lufthansa recommendations for travel this summer
More than 76.000 people take off on holiday with Lufthansa from Frankfurt Airport. With 192 destinations, the airline offers even more destinations in Frankfurt compared to the summer of 2019. With more than 1.800 weekly connections, about 55% of pre-Corona connections, a growing trend can be seen. .
At the same time, many states continue to request additional documents, such as test certificates or vaccinations. For this reason, Lufthansa recommends that passengers obtain information in advance and arrive at the airport on time.
Lufthansa recommendations for travel this summer.
Those who are worried that they do not have the right certificates for passengers can check them at a Lufthansa service center - on selected flights - up to 72 hours before departure. These may include evidence of tests, a certificate of disease or a certificate of vaccination. Lufthansa also recommends that passengers hold original printed certificates, in addition to digital proof.
For a relaxed trip, Lufthansa recommends using a wide range of online check-in and check-in services. At Frankfurt Airport, passengers can check in their luggage free of charge at the existing office - from now until the end of the holiday. This is conveniently possible up to 23 hours before departure and, if necessary, directly combined with a drive-through covid test.
To avoid waiting times at security checkpoints, you should also check your hand luggage at your luggage machines, if possible. For flights with very high occupancy rates, Lufthansa passengers receive an e-mail before departure, through which they can check their hand luggage for free. Less hand luggage at the gate and in the cabin ensures smooth boarding and contributes to a punctual departure.
Passengers are kindly requested to inform themselves in advance of the applicable regulations. The mask requirement also applies to vaccinated persons and those who have recovered from the disease.
Lufthansa offers special services for families to start their holiday in a relaxed way: parents with young children can use the family check-in areas in Frankfurt. Lufthansa employees at the 65-68 family counters at Gate A especially accept luggage and strollers. However, it is always advisable to book seats and check in online 23 hours before departure.
Those who are still planning a trip now can do so with Lufthansa Group airlines without any worries. Full flexibility in booking options continues to apply. All airline fares can continue to be recharged free of charge whenever desired until July 31, 2021, if recharging is done until then. After that, passengers can book their ticket again for free. The route can be modified at will, depending on availability.
Lufthansa has also launched the new concept of Onboard Delights catering for European flights. The new menu contains a high quality range of fresh meals, snacks and drinks available for purchase in Economy class, sustainable food and organic packaging and a free surprise with water and chocolate for all passengers.
