Lufthansa to publish additional flight cancellations for summer 2022

After the flight cancellations that have already taken place have led to noticeable relief and a stabilization of flight operations, Lufthansa is cancelling additional 2,000 flights in Frankfurt and Munich for the coming weeks in summer. The cancellations mainly affect flights in the afternoon and evening peaks, as this is when many flights take off at the same time and rotation delays have a particularly strong impact.

The aim is to offer a stable flight schedule, avoid ad-hoc cancellations and thus keep the impact on Lufthansa passengers as low as possible.

The adjustments will mainly affect German domestic flights and flights within Europe for which there are predominantly alternative transport options – for example, other flights or rail options. Popular vacation destinations are currently excluded.
