Lufthansa is reducing its offer at Leipzig / Halle Airport. As a group spokeswoman told the MDR, Lufthansa will no longer fly to Frankfurt Airport from Leipzig / Halle for the time being. Instead, passengers could take the ICE from Leipzig to Frankfurt Airport in specially reserved areas. However, there should be flight connections to Munich again.
Munich line remains
Lufthansa expands cooperation with Deutsche Bahn
In cooperation with Deutsche Bahn, Lufthansa connects Frankfurt Airport with 17 cities by rail and has thus significantly expanded the service. Up until the beginning of the 1990s, Lufthansa operated its own trains on the Stuttgart – Frankfurt and Düsseldorf – Frankfurt routes, which were reserved for its guests only. This service was discontinued for cost reasons. Now the airline is using reserved compartments or wagons for its guests on regular trains. Travelers book the seats like a plane ticket with Lufthansa.
Independently of this, Deutsche Bahn offers its own Rail & Fly tickets for air travelers from all train stations and cooperates with many airlines that serve routes from Germany.
Eurowings again more frequently in Leipzig / Halle and Dresden
The Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings is flying to the central German airports again more frequently. The first flight from Leipzig / Halle to Düsseldorf after the five-month Corona break starts on Sunday. According to the airport holding company, the route is operated every day except on Saturdays. Eurowings already connects Leipzig / Halle with Palma de Mallorca and Varna.
From Monday, Eurowings will take off again from Dresden to Stuttgart. The flights take place daily from Monday to Friday. From Dresden, the airline is already on its way to Düsseldorf and Palma de Mallorca. Cologne / Bonn has been announced for September.
