More flights, more destinations: Lufthansa Group Airlines significantly extend June timetable

Slowly the world is opening up again. Step by step, travel restrictions are being lifted and more and more destinations will become available for the summer. Isn’t this news that makes you want to travel?

The June flight schedule: More than 130 destinations worldwide

With these developments, the airlines of the Lufthansa Group are significantly expanding their flight offer. The focus is on summer leisure destinations, for example in Croatia, Italy, Portugal and Spain. However, the long-haul offer is also being expanded with attractive holiday and business destinations. Starting in the second half of June, for example, we will again fly to Beijing, Cairo, Montreal, San Francisco, San José, Seoul and Shanghai.*

With the coordinated flight schedules of the Lufthansa Group airlines we provide travellers with reliable connections to European and intercontinental destinations via our hubs in Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Zurich and Brussels.

Further flight cancellations and flexible rebooking options

Despite the significantly expanded flight schedule, the Lufthansa Group airlines must cancel additional flights from 15 to 30 June 2020. The flight cancellations will be gradually implemented in the booking systems on 28 May 2020 and will appear in your queue.

You can rebook passengers affected by the flight cancellations according to the Flight Irregularities Policy (OS/LH/LX), SN INVOL Rules or EN INVOL Rules. Alternatively, you can make a rebooking free of charge for passengers who wish to change their routing based on the goodwill rules.

Reference notes on reconfirmation for bookings affected by flight cancellations

With today's flight cancellations for the last two weeks of June, in addition to the UN or UN/TK, an SSR element ("PLS VERIFY IF PAX DEF TRVL AND INSERT OSI YY PAX DEF TRVLG") will be entered into all PNRs in which at least one Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa or SWISS flight segment is cancelled and/or automatically rebooked. If your customer wants to use the remaining flights as booked, please confirm this by entering an OSI element ("PAX DEF TRVLG"). To give you more time to process these PNRs as part of your standard flight irregularity handling processes, the deadline for reconfirmation has now been extended to 21 days.

For PNRs that are not affected by a flight irregularity, nothing changes. No SSR element is entered into the booking and therefore no reconfirmation (OSI element) is required.

The reconfirmation process helps us to offer you realistic availability in the reservation systems for the next weeks.
