Lufthansa is recording a sharp rise in intercontinental and intra-European bookings for the upcoming Christmas and New Year travel season.
Last week, up to 400 percent more people booked destinations overseas as well as Southern and Northern Europe than in the previous week.
Particularly in demand were flight destinations in South Africa (Cape Town, Johannesburg), Namibia (Windhoek), the Canary Islands, Madeira and sunny destinations in the Mediterranean, but also snow-assured areas in Northern Finland.
Lufthansa is responding to the increased demand with new flights to and from destinations in Europe, but also by increasing the frequency of existing connections at favorable conditions.
For example, Lufthansa now flies from Frankfurt and Munich to almost every island in the Canary Islands and will offer non-stop flights from Frankfurt to the islands of La Palma and Fuerteventura from 19 December for the first time. Seville and Palermo will also be back in the flight schedule from Frankfurt and Munich. From Frankfurt, Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete, which can also boast significantly warmer temperatures in winter, is also on the program.
