Lufthansa flies the train

Railway tickets are a new option available on the Lufthansa web site.  When booking a flight online, passengers simply need to click on the new 'Rail&Fly' option, then select their route and their travel class.  Previously rail tickets had to be booked separately.

A Rail&Fly ticket to the departure airport for an international Lufthansa flight can be added to the flight booking for only €25 in Second Class and €45 in First Class.  The price for a round-trip ticket is €50 or €90 respectively.  The Rail&Fly ticket can be used on nearly all Deutsche Bahn (DB) trains, including the ICE.  More than 5,600 DB railway stations throughout Germany qualify as departure stations.

Once their flight booking has been confirmed, passengers can simply print out their rail ticket at their own convenience.  They will also receive a separate confirmation by email, containing all their travel information and the link to the train ticket.  In addition to their plane ticket, passengers will be required to show their credit card, EC card or DB BahnCard as identification on the train. www.lufthansa.com/de/en/the-train-to-the-plane
