Lufthansa to double schedule in June, including holiday destinations


GERMANY’s Lufthansa on Friday said it would roughly double its schedule in June, putting 160 planes into the air to carry passengers to 106 domestic and foreign destinations, the airline announced from its Frankfurt Headquarters.

Lufthansa, along with its subsidiaries Swiss and Eurowings, will include many traditional holiday destinations in the schedule, including Crete and Majorca in the Mediterranean and Sylt and Rostock on the Northern German coastline.

However, about 600 aircraft that belong to the group would remain grounded.

Earlier, the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s second-largest airline after Ryanair, confirmed that it was in talks with the German Government regarding a bailout package of 9 billion euros (or 9.7 billion dollars).

According to the airline, in exchange for the stabilization package, the government has proposed taking a stake in the company of up to 25 percent including one share and one seat on the supervisory board. (dpa/NAN)
