The Lufthansa Group announced the extension of free rebooking period on May 18 saying its airlines are even more responsive when it comes to rebooking. The company said that the trip can be rebooked free of charge to a new travel date up to and including December 2021. The extended period is applicable to all the Lufthansa Group Airlines including Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Air Dolomiti.
The global aviation group said that the journey can also be postponed to the second half of 2021 but the new travel date must be before 31 December 2021. It added that this rule applies to tickets booked up to and including 30 June 2020 and with a confirmed travel date up to and including 30 April 2021.
Further, The Lufthansa Group’s low cost carrier Eurowings is significantly expanding its flight schedule from June 2020 and will return to Bosnia and Herzegovina, while growing its presence in Croatia, albeit at reduced frequencies.
Eurowings’ CEO, Jens Bischof: “We can feel the growing desire of people to travel again and relax and enjoy their holidays after a long period of travel bans. This is exactly what we are now making possible with our extended summer schedule – reliably, safely and with all due caution. Travelling, whether private or professional, will be possible again”
