The airlines in the Lufthansa Group Airlines – Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Germanwings, Lufthansa and Swiss – plan to add additional flights this summer.

Lufthansa will have a total of 215 destinations in its summer timetable. It is added a flight from Frankfurt to the Polish city of Bydgoszcz. The northern Danish city of Aalborg will be served by a non-stop flight from Frankfurt. Heraklion (Crete/Greece) and Seville (Spain) are other new additions to Lufthansa’s flight timetable.

Lufthansa will use its A380s on routes from Frankfurt to Los Angeles and Seoul during the summer.

On 25 September 2015, Lufthansa will launch its new intercontinental flight programme with a flight to Tampa, Florida using an A340-300 five times a week. Other routes planned from Frankfurt – to Panama, Cancún, Malé and Mauritius – will be added this winter.

Germanwings is offering a total of 132 destinations in 31 countries from Berlin-Tegel, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover, Cologne/Bonn and Stuttgart. Its flight connections from Düsseldorf to Athens (Greece), Jerez de la Frontera (Spain), Jersey and Reykjavík (Iceland) are all new. The airline is also adding two new routes from Düsseldorf in April to the Portuguese destinations of Porto and Faro. Its routes to France will be expanded as well to include the port city of Marseille. In future, it will fly non-stop from Berlin to Palermo (Sicily/Italy). There will be flights from Berlin and Hamburg to Izmir (Turkey) in the summer. Hamburg will also have a direct connection to Bari, the capital of Apulia. The new routes from Stuttgart to Nice, Amsterdam and Valencia will enhance the airline’s summer flight timetable. Cologne/Bonn to Priština (Kosovo) and Stuttgart to Tunis and to Tirana (Albania) will also be added as new routes during the summer holiday period.

Swiss is adding 34 new destinations to its summer flight timetable in 2015. 22 of them will be served from Zurich, such as Leipzig, Bilbao (Spain) and Gothenburg (Sweden). Customers will be able to fly to 12 new cities from Geneva, including Valencia and Dublin. The frequency of flights to various European cities and to San Francisco will also be increased.

Austrian Airlines is adding Menorca (Spain) to its flight timetable in June 2015, as well as Miami in October 2015. From summer 2015, all of Austrian’s destinations in North America will be served from Vienna up to daily. From March 2015, Odessa (Ukraine) will be included once again.

Brussels Airlines is adding ten new European destinations to its flight timetable. These include three new French airports in Bordeaux, Lourdes-Pyrénées and Calvi (Corsica). Other holiday locations like Dubrovnik and Zagreb (both in Croatia), St. Petersburg (Russia), Olbia (Sardinia/Italy) and Ibiza (Balearics/Spain) will enhance the route network of Brussels Airlines. New city destinations such as Riga (Latvia) and Billund (Denmark) will be served by non-stop flights from Brussels.
