On-the-go throughout Europe, in comfort.
Leaning back, relaxing, stretching one’s legs and enjoying the on-board service – that’s what passengers get to do on all flights within Germany and Europe in Lufthansa Business Class and Economy Class.

The interior is high-quality and the seats are comfortable and ergonomically-designed. The spaciousness around passengers’ knees, access to the seat pocket even when the tray table is down, and fine leather upholstery are just a few of the details that assure passengers’ well-being on board.

Enjoying more space and flexibility in Lufthansa Business Class
Business travellers know why they book Lufthansa Business Class. Firstly, they are flexible: if meetings change, flights can be rebooked or cancelled without any problems. Secondly, every other seat is always left empty on flights within Europe. So they have significantly more space and more privacy, which is ideal for working on board – and also for relaxing, of course. In Lufthansa Regional aircraft, travellers can even choose between a window or aisle seat. It is a service that no other airline in Europe offers.

Travel in comfort – in Lufthansa Economy Class
A very comfortable, roomy cabin environment and tasty meals make flying in Lufthansa Economy Class very pleasant. Even on flights within Germany, a little snack sweetens the time on board. On longer flights, passengers enjoy meals appropriate for the departure time and destination. A large selection of non-alcoholic beverages as well as wine and beer complete the offer.

Save time and check in flexibly – with Lufthansa eFly Services.
In the taxi on the way to the airport, at the computer in the office, on a comfy couch or at the airport: with Lufthansa eFly Services, passengers check in wherever is most convenient for them, using a smartphone, computer or the easy-to-operate check-in kiosk.

Checking in with just a few clicks
Passengers can check in up to 23 hours before departure via a web-enabled mobile phone or a computer through Lufthansa eFly Services to save time. Selecting a seat, printing boarding passes or requesting a boarding pass via e-mail or text message – everything’s easy.

As an alternative to online or mobile check-in, many airports have convenient check-in kiosks available. Passports or bar codes are simply read by a scanner and boarding passes are printed out. Travellers with a flexible ticket can even change their reservations or select an alternative flight.

Checking baggage made easy
However passengers choose to check in, baggage is quickly and easily checked by Lufthansa employees at the baggage drop-off counters. It’s even faster when passengers check their own baggage at the Lufthansa baggage kiosks in Frankfurt or Munich. Simply follow the brief instructions on the screen, attach the baggage tag to the item being checked, and with the press of a button, your baggage is underway.

Have a good experience – even with special travel requirements.
Special concerns deserve trustworthy services and personal care. Especially when it comes to travellers who cannot always help themselves in every situation. Lufthansa makes sure that e. g. unaccompanied children or seniors and families can reach their desired destination safely.

Unaccompanied children – well looked after ‘on tour’
Vacationing with grandma, visiting their aunt or spending the weekend with Daddy – there are many reasons why children travel alone. It’s a good thing that Lufthansa has set up a special service with highly trained staff who take care of five to eleven year- olds during their entire trip. This service is available for a fee. Older children can also be looked after upon request.

Starting from the check-in counter, a Lufthansa representative accompanies these young passengers and handles all formalities. In their own waiting rooms in Frankfurt and Munich, their waiting time flies by with games and fun.

After boarding, a flight attendant takes over responsibility for the children and cares for them during the entire flight. To make sure that they don’t get bored on board, Lufthansa provides games and drawing materials, and even child-friendly entertainment on long-haul flights. After landing, a Lufthansa representative meets unaccompanied children at the aircraft and takes them to the person picking them up.

Getting to the aircraft without stress – with the Lufthansa Family Service
Instead of hassle and stress at the airport, it’s better to start your vacation relaxed. This is child’s play with a Lufthansa Guide. The Guide helps with orientation at the airport as well as with handling travel formalities. This is often a huge relief, especially for large families or seniors. In Frankfurt and Munich, passengers can enjoy the service in over 50 languages, for a fee.

Social Commitment / Green Travel

Lufthansa demonstrates responsibility.
For years, Lufthansa has emphasized sustainable corporate development and has included it as an objective in its corporate guidelines. This also includes reconciling economic and ecological interests.

Good examples of how Lufthansa is meeting this responsibility and ensuring continuous improvements on the environmental front are the billions that have been invested in a low-emission and fuel-efficient fleet, and many operational environmental and efficiency measures in flight and on the ground.

Examples of commitments that have set new standards:

  • With only 4.06 litres of jet fuel consumption per passenger per 100 kilometres, the Group fleet achieved a new efficiency record in 2012 – this is the lowest value in the company’s history.
  • Lufthansa was the first airline worldwide to investigate the longterm use of biokerosene in regular flight operations in 2011 – the biofuel proved suitable for everyday use.
  • The latest addition to the fleet is the Boeing 747-8, which is 15 per cent more fuel-efficient than the previous model and is 30 per cent quieter.
  • The flagship of the fleet – the A380 – only consumes 3.4 litres of fuel to transport one passenger a distance of 100 kilometres, and it is approximately 30 per cent quieter than previous wide-bodied aircraft.
