Lufthansa is getting back into the holiday market. In one week the German Airline added Cancun in Mexico, Male in the Maldives and Mauritius to its long-haul network.
According to Lufthansa these flights are a big success.
Lufthansa passengers now have the opportunity to fly directly with Europe’s biggest airline and if not on strike from Frankfurt to these popular vacation spots.
Things kicked off on December, when flight LH 514 departed Frankfurt for Cancún. This was followed on Wednesday, December 9, with flight LH 704 to Malé. The week was rounded off on December 10 with flight LH 708 to Mauritius.
The inaugural flights were very well booked and the advance bookings for the upcoming Christmas and holiday weeks are looking very good.
Lufthansa’s expansion into tourist destinations started in September with Tampa, Florida and Nairobi, Kenya being added. In March 2016, flights to Panama City, Panama will begin.
The aircraft used for these flights – equipped with a FlyNet broadband connection – is the Airbus A340-300, offering three different travel classes of service except First Class. Out of a total of 298 seats, 18 are in Business Class, 19 in Premium Economy and 261 in Economy.
