Lufthansa Group airlines continue operating to the USA

Despite the new travel guidelines ordered by the US administration on passengers from the European Union, Switzerland and other countries, Lufthansa Group airlines will continue to offer flights to the USA from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.

The special flight schedule valid from 14 March 2020:

  • Austrian Airlines: from Vienna (VIE) to Chicago (ORD) – until 18 March 2020
  • Lufthansa: from Frankfurt (FRA) to Chicago (ORD) and Newark (EWR)
  • SWISS: from Zurich (ZRH) to Chicago (ORD) and Newark (EWR)
  • Brussels Airlines: from Brussels (BRU) to Washington (IAD)

With this adjusted flight schedule, the Lufthansa Group airlines are maintaining at least some air traffic connections to the USA from Europe. Via Chicago, Newark and Washington passengers will still be able to reach all destinations within the USA with joint-venture partner United Airlines.

All other Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings flights to the USA will be suspended until further notice due to U.S. administration restrictions, including all departures from Munich (MUC), Düsseldorf (DUS) and Geneva (GVA).

If your customers are unable to travel due to the changed US entry restrictions, the airlines of the Lufthansa Group offer free of charge rebooking options.

Refunds for cancelled flights can be made according to the „Flight irregularities policy (OS/LH/LX)“ and SN INVOL rules.

We regret the inconvenience and the high additional workload that you will have to deal with in your travel agency due to these flight schedule adjustments. We would like to thank you very much for your confidence in the Lufthansa Group and your great support in these times.
