Lufthansa Group Airlines extend the possibility of changing bookings free of charge
- Carefree booking thanks to flexible rebooking conditions
- Change of route possible
- New flight can be up to a year in the future
- No need to immediately set a new travel date and destination
Anyone planning a trip in the next few weeks and months can book flights with Lufthansa Group Airlines despite the pandemic, because Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings continue to offer flexible rebooking options. If passengers want to rebook their trip, they don't even have to immediately decide on a new travel date or destination.
Since the end of August, all tariffs of the Lufthansa Group airlines can be changed free of charge. This tariff was last valid for new and rebooking until the end of May. The offer is now being extended again: all airline fares can still be rebooked as often as required free of charge if tickets are issued until July 31, 2021 if the rebooking is also made by then. Passengers can then rebook their ticket one more time free of charge. The newly booked flight can be up to one year in the future during the entire ticket validity period. Travelers can also change their route as they wish, depending on availability and, for example, fly from Munich to New York instead of Frankfurt to Rio de Janeiro.
Passengers who want to postpone their original trip but cannot yet decide on a new date and destination have the option of canceling their booking first without setting a new travel date. Your ticket remains in the system as a credit until you have decided on a new reservation and redeemed it again. The new booking then only has to be created by August 31, 2021. In this case, the departure can only take place next year, until July 31, 2022.
Last year, the Lufthansa Group airlines made it possible to rebook free of charge. The waiver of rebooking fees applies worldwide to all new bookings in all tariffs for short, medium and long-haul routes. This enables all Lufthansa passengers
Group Airlines flexible travel planning.
However, additional costs may arise when rebooking, for example if the original booking class is no longer available when changing to a different date or to a different travel destination.
