Airlines Expand Flight Programme for Easter Travel Season

Lufthansa is reporting an increase in bookings for the upcoming Easter travel season. For the last two weeks, up to 80 percent more bookings were received for Mallorca, 20 percent more bookings for the Canary Islands, as well as 50 percent for Mexico. The lifting of travel restrictions to Mallorca by the Federal Government of Germany will further strengthen this trend. The airline is responding to the increased demand and has almost doubled the number of offered flights

In total, Lufthansa will be offering around 1,200 European flights from March to April. That is around 200 percent more connections from Munich and around 50 percent more from Frankfurt compared with the current week.

Destinations in Spain are particularly in demand. That is why the airline is flying to almost every Canary Island for the first time. Capacities from Munich to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura will even be doubled for Easter, and from Frankfurt, capacities to Gran Canaria and Tenerife will be increased by 50 percent.

Mallorca is currently in particularly high demand among vacationers. Lufthansa has responded by significantly increasing the number of flights to Mallorca: instead of two weekly flights from Munich, there will now be up to eleven weekly connections, and from Frankfurt, instead of six weekly flights, there will now be up to 20 weekly connections during the Easter travel season.

In addition, Eurowings is currently successively expanding its frequencies to Mallorca: The airline is planning up to 325 weekly flights from 24 airports in Germany and the UK to Palma de Mallorca.

In addition, in Spain, the cities of Valencia and Málaga are usually  heavily booked by all sun-seekers over Easter.

In the case of overseas flights, Cancun in Mexico and San José in Costa Rica from Frankfurt are particularly in demand. Cancun can now be reached daily, San José five times a week.

More information can be found at lufthansa.com. The flights are available for booking now, combined with attractive and flexible rebooking options.

Customers should note the current entry and quarantine regulations of the respective destinations when planning their trip.

Germany’s most popular leisure airline Condor is ramping up its Mallorca programme for Easter following the lifting of the travel warning for the Balearic Island: Condor is flying to Palma de Mallorca from eight airports in Germany in time for the Easter holidays, thus offering more flight options for Easter than in the peak season last summer. Condor is taking off from Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Leipzig with several additional flights. Besides, flights to Mallorca from Berlin, Hanover, Stuttgart and Zurich will be available from Easter and thus earlier than planned. The Condor flights to Germany’s most popular holiday island will take off in time for the Easter holidays in the respective German states, from Dusseldorf even as early as 20 March. All flights can be booked at www.condor.com, with tour operators and in travel agencies. Currently, particularly flexible rebooking conditions apply to all new bookings.

Thanks to increasing demand, Condor is also departing earlier from Switzerland: from Zurich there are already flights punctually at Easter not only to Mallorca, but also to the Canary Islands Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Next summer Condor will station two aircraft in Zurich and fly from there to popular holiday destinations in Greece, Spain and Cyprus.
