In a move that marks a significant step forward in its operational launch, Lufthansa City Airlines, the newest member of the Lufthansa Group, has announced its first set of destinations ahead of its inaugural flight in the summer of 2024. The airline, poised to redefine regional air travel, will commence operations from Munich, targeting a mix of domestic and European cities including Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Hanover, Birmingham, Bordeaux, and Manchester. This initial route network sets the stage for a broader expansion across Europe in the subsequent months.

Lufthansa City Airlines' ambitious growth strategy is underscored by a major investment in its future fleet, with over 40 Airbus A220-300 aircraft on order and an additional 20 purchase options. This new fleet represents a commitment to innovation and sustainability, offering passengers the latest in comfort and efficiency. The A220-300 is renowned for its fuel efficiency and reduced environmental footprint, aligning with the Lufthansa Group's goals for a greener aviation future.

The airline's strategic focus on enhancing the Lufthansa Group's short-haul network is a key component of its competitive edge and supports the broader objective of expanding Lufthansa's long-haul operations. By strengthening its market position through this expansion, Lufthansa City Airlines is setting a new benchmark in regional air travel.

Passengers of Lufthansa City Airlines will be treated to the high-quality service and customer experience that Lufthansa is known for, tailored to short and medium-haul routes. The airline has already begun integrating its brand identity into its operations, with the first two of four Airbus A319 aircraft set to join the fleet this year, already adorned in the distinctive Lufthansa City livery.

Prospective travelers will be able to book their flights starting from the end of April, with reservations available through the familiar Lufthansa Group sales channels. This launch not only signifies the expansion of the Lufthansa Group's offerings but also represents a forward-looking approach to regional air travel, combining operational excellence with a commitment to sustainability and innovation.
