Lufthansa Targets 60%-70% Of Pre-COVID-19 Pandemic Passenger Numbers By Year-End
Passenger numbers at Lufthansa are currently approximately 40% of pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels and it is aiming to reach 60%-70% by the end of the year, a manager at the German airline has said.
"We started into the summer with about 10% of passengers and 15% of flights compared to pre-crisis levels", Jens Fehlinger said.
Lufthansa is currently running about 55% of the flights it used to.
While it is serving 192 destinations - more than in summer 2019 - it is flying many routes less frequently.
The airline and its subsidiaries are using 520 aircraft, compared with roughly 800 before the crisis, Fehlinger said.
