Good news for North Texas! On Saturday, May 1, Lufthansa will resume service to and from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) with three weekly flights to the airline’s largest hub in Frankfurt, Germany. With this new development, Lufthansa continues to meet the pent-up demand of its loyal customers throughout the United States and will now connect the Dallas-Fort Worth region to its growing network of international destinations.
The resumed route will operate out of DFW on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays using an Airbus A330-300 with a three-class configuration offering Business, Premium Economy and Economy classes. Beginning in June, and lasting through the end of the summer season, the route will shift to five weekly flights.
"The Lufthansa Group is committed to connecting passengers and serving as a bridge between the continents. We are excited to resume service for our Dallas-Fort Worth area customers and we continue to expand our network connections as the world gradually opens up,” said Matt Strong, General Manager, Sales, South Central USA.
John Ackerman, executive vice president of Global Strategy and Development at DFW International Airport said, “We are excited to welcome the Lufthansa passenger service back to DFW Airport. Germany remains an important market for DFW, and Lufthansa provides another attractive choice as customer confidence in travel con-tinues to increase. As more and more people return to travel at DFW, we remain committed to providing customers with an unparalleled experience that includes a safe and clean environment.”
Extensive network and worldwide connectivity
Lufthansa and the Lufthansa Group Passenger Airlines offer an extensive, worldwide network. In addition to European destinations, other locales important to residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth region are readily served by Lufthansa, including: Tel Aviv, Delhi and Bangalore, as well as Southeast Asia and Africa.
Travelers transiting beyond Europe or transferring to EU destinations should familiarize themselves with the latest entry regulations prior to departure. Currently only individuals meeting the entry requirements for the Group’s home markets may transfer through Lufthansa Group hubs in Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Zurich, when the final destination is within the EU’s Schengen area.
Lufthansa hygiene concept
On Lufthansa Group flights to and from Germany, passengers are required to wear a protective medical mask— either a surgical mask or an FFP2 mask, or mask with the KN95/N95 standard, during boarding, the flight and when leaving the aircraft. An exemption from the obligation to wear a mouth-nose mask during the flight is only possible for medical reasons, if the medical certificate is issued on a form provided by Lufthansa Group and a negative Covid19 test, not older than 48 hours at the scheduled start of the journey, is available.
As studies and reports have indicated, infection on board is highly unlikely. All Lufthansa Group aircraft are equipped with the highest quality air filters, which ensure an air quality similar to that in an operating room. In addition, the air circulates vertically instead of dispersed throughout the cabin.
Book in advance; rebooking flexibility
The Lufthansa Group recommends to book travel as soon as possible since the 2021 summer flights purchased by May 31, 2021, can be rebooked as often as desired, free-of-charge, until that date. After May 31, 2021, one more rebooking, free-of-charge, is possible. Additional costs may arise if, for example, the original booking class is no longer available when rebooking for a different date or to a different destination.
