The Lufthansa Group is expanding its offering: Lufthansa City Airlines will begin operations on June 26, 2024. The first flight, scheduled for 09:10 a.m., will take off from Munich to Birmingham with an Airbus A320neo. This new airline of the Lufthansa Group promises a familiar Lufthansa customer experience and relies on modern, efficient aircraft for short and medium-haul routes.

"Lufthansa City Airlines is aiming to successfully establish itself in the European short- and medium-haul segment from Munich and Frankfurt. This is a major investment in the future that will strengthen Germany as an aviation location and create numerous attractive jobs," explained Jens Fehlinger, Chief Operating Officer of Lufthansa City Airlines.

Since April, passengers have been able to book flights under the new airline code "VL" via the Lufthansa Group's well-known sales channels. The first destinations include Birmingham, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Hanover and Bremen. From July 27, 2024, another aircraft, an Airbus A319, will fly to the cities of Bordeaux, Hamburg and Berlin. The fleet will initially be expanded to five Airbus A320s, followed by at least eight more A320neos and A319s next year. From 2026, 40 new, fuel-efficient Airbus A220-300s will be added to the fleet.
