Lufthansa release new winter schedule, confirm Cyprus flights


Lufthansa Group has released its new schedule for the upcoming winter season. Due to begin on October 25, 2015, the new schedule from Lufthansa Group Airlines will last until March 27, 2016.


Lufthansa confirmed to Cyprus Traveller that they will be operating at least four weekly flights between Munich and Larnaka and two flights between Frankfurt and Larnaka.


Austrian Airlines – a Lufthansa Group subsidiary – will operate at least seven weekly flights between Vienna and Larnaka.


Additionally, the new price concept on domestic German and European routes will also apply to Austrian Airlines and Lufthansa. In Economy Class, travellers can individually choose between the three graded fare options “Light”, “Classic” and “Flex”. These options vary mainly with regard to the possibility of making advance seat reservations, re-booking or cancelling flights, and permitted free luggage allowances.


Since tickets went on sale last July, the new low-priced “Light” fare option has proved popular with customers. For all options, the Lufthansa Group Airlines as a premier airline still permits one free item of hand baggage.


Passengers are also offered free snacks and drinks on board, fixed seat allocation at the check-in counter as well as bonuses for “award miles”, “status miles” and “select miles”.
