The soon-to-launch carrier Lufthansa City Airlines has confirmed the first European cities to which it will operate when it takes to the skies in summer 2024. 

On February 27, 2024, Lufthansa City, Lufthansa Groups’ newest subsidiary carrier, announced that it will initially offer flights to destinations in Germany, France and the United Kingdom (UK).  

Flying from its base at Munich Franz Josef Strauss International (MUC), City Airlines will fly to six German locations: Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Düsseldorf, Cologne and Hanover. 

In the UK, Lufthansa City will fly to from MUC to Britain’s second largest city, Birmingham, and in the north-west of England, Manchester.  

Initially, the airline will only operate to Bordeaux in France from MUC.

Over subsequent months, Lufthansa City Airlines will gradually expand its network and offer further destinations in Europe. 

The first two of four Airbus A319 aircraft have already been painted in the new City Airlines livery and are being prepared for deployment this year. 

In December 2023, the Lufthansa Group placed an order with Airbus for 40 A220-300, and a further 20 purchase options, all earmarked for Lufthansa City. 

“The competitive strengthening of the short-haul network is essential for strengthening the Lufthansa Group’s market position and the planned growth of Lufthansa long-haul routes,” a statement from Lufthansa Group said. 

The statement added: “Passengers on board Lufthansa City Airlines can expect the Lufthansa product offering and customer experience for short and medium-haul routes.”   

Bookings will be open for flights with Lufthansa City Airlines from the end of April 2024.
