The airlines of the Lufthansa Group — Lufthansa, Swiss International Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings will become even more attractive from October 2017 to March 2018. 

The airlines will be offering their customers precisely 24,922 weekly flights worldwide Over the winter, they connect 288 destinations in 106 countries. In addition, there will be more than 18,000 code-share flights with around 30 partner airlines supplementing the respective flight programs, offering passengers an almost worldwide network of routes. The winter flight schedule of the individual group airlines will come into force on Sunday October 29, 2017, and will be valid until Saturday March 24, 2018.

From November 8, 2017, Lufthansa will offer flights between Berlin and New York (USA) five times a week. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, an Airbus A330-300 will take off heading west. Lufthansa will thus be once again basing a long-haul aircraft in the US capital, for the first time since 2001.

By resuming the Düsseldorf – Miami (USA) connection from this coming winter, Lufthansa is responding to the numerous requests of passengers from North Rhine-Westphalia. The service will begin on November 8, 2017, and flights will take off three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).

The winter flight schedule will see Beijing (China) becoming a new A350-900 destination for flights from Munich. Lufthansa passengers can thus travel to the Chinese capital for the first time on the world’s most advanced and environmentally-friendly long-haul aircraft. The Airbus A350-900 will take off four times a week from Munich. After Hong Kong, Beijing is the second most important Lufthansa A350 destination in China. In addition to this, there will also be Lufthansa A350-900 flights leaving from Munich for Boston (USA), Delhi (India) and Bombay (India). 

There will also be a wide range of flights in the upcoming winter from Munich to Charlotte (USA), Denver (USA) and Tokyo (Japan).

From the end of October, Lufthansa will start operating flights to many new winter destinations – Pamplona (Spain), Genoa, Bari, Catania (all in Italy), Kuusamo (Finland), Cluj and Timișoara (both Romania) are the new destinations from Frankfurt. There will also be flights this winter from Frankfurt to Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Reykjavik (Iceland), Palermo (Italy) and Paderborn.

With Nantes (France), Glasgow (UK) and Santiago de Compostela (Spain), the flight program from Munich will now be expanded to include a number of further attractive city destinations.   

In the upcoming winter flight schedule, another destination will be added to the route network of the Boeing 777-300ER – Swiss will now operate its flagship aircraft on flights to the Brazilian city of São Paolo.
