On Tuesday (December 14, 2021), Lufthansa announced additional details for their summer 2022 schedule, including service to over 160 European destinations from Frankfurt and Munich, with more flights to leisure destinations than ever before. The carrier will also launch new long-haul service between Frankfurt and St Louis, Missouri (US), and plans on operating 25 special 2022 World Cup flights from Frankfurt. Additionally, Lufthansa will deploy four additional Airbus A350-900s from Munich to more dream destinations and Eurowings Discover will operate an expanded flights schedule. This summer, the number of intra-European connections from Frankfurt and Munich will nearly reach the summer 2019 level with approximately 5,000 weekly flights.

With the official start of their summer 2022 schedule, Lufthansa will strengthen their premium Munich hub. For the first time, the carrier will fly nonstop between the Bavarian capital to Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), San Diego (California, US) and Bangkok (Thailand). Lufthansa’s guests will enjoy the Group’s most modern and efficient long-haul aircraft, the Airbus A350-900, with an expansion of the Munich A350 fleet from 17 to 21 aircraft. Accelerating the modernization of their long-haul fleet, the Lufthansa Group signed lease agreement for four additional A350-900s in the fall of 2021. In addition to the A350-900s, Lufthansa will also deploy five Airbus A340-600s featuring First Class from Munich for summer 2022.

Lufthansa is offering six new vacation destinations from Munich this summer with service to Kalamata (Greece), Menorca (Spain), Varna (Bulgaria), Billund (Denmark) and Bergen (Norway). Additionally, from April 2022, Air Dolomiti will offer service between Munich and Brindisi (Italy). Eurowings Discover will fly from Munich to sunny destinations including Punta Cana (Dominican Republic), Cancún (Mexico) and Las Vegas (Nevada, US). Throughout the course of the summer, Eurowings Discover will serve 22 short and medium-haul tourist destinations including the Canary Islands, Turkey and 12 Greek islands, including new service to Samos and Skiathos.

Next year, Lufthansa will fly to more U.S. destinations than ever before from Frankfurt, including new service to St. Louis, Missouri (US) from June 2022. The new service to St. Louis will be the first nonstop flight by an airline from continental Europe to the famous city on the Mississippi river in around 20 years. The carrier will also offer new service this summer from Frankfurt to Stavanger (Norway) and Liverpool (UK), as well as Rennes (France) from May 2022. Eurowings Discover will also offer many attractive short, medium and long-haul flights from Frankfurt for summer 2022. North American service will include flights to Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Tampa, Fort Myers, Anchorage, Halifax and Calgary.

Finally, Lufthansa will offer 25 special fan flights for the football (soccer) 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The carrier will operate up to five weekly flights from Frankfurt to Doha between November 14, 2022 and December 19, 2022. Lufthansa also plans on operating an Airbus A340-300 to Doha with the flight number LH 620. The special World Cup flights will be available for booking from Thursday, December 16, 2021.

Lufthansa continues to offer maximum booking security and flexibility, allowing all fares to be rebooked. Travelers can also choose to make their air travel CO2 neutral, with the option of offsetting their flights via high-quality climate projects or bus subsidizing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The Lufthansa Group airlines have integrated the options into the booking process, and frequent flyers can find them in the Miles & More app. Additional information is available at
