A new price concept for flights in Europe is to be introduced by Lufthansa and is on sale.
Economy Class fare options ‘Light’, ‘Classic’ and ‘Flex’ apply from 1 October, for European flights and will offer different services depending on the price. The booked fare can be complemented with additional services by individually adding further options.
Jens Bischof, Chief Commercial Officer of Lufthansa, said: “It is the wish of many customers to only pay for the services they actually make use of. With this new fare concept, we are doing just that.”
The new Light fare will be the most economical option for those travelling just with hand luggage and not in need of any ticket flexibility. Jens Bischof says that only about a third of passengers travelling within Europe take luggage into the cabin.
The Classic fare includes the opportunity to check-in a piece of luggage of up to 23kgs. This option also offers a new, additional opportunity for many passengers to secure their desired seat, free-of-charge, at booking.
The Flex fare is focused principally on passengers that require more flexibility in their travel planning. In addition to the free seat reservation, the Flex fare offers the opportunity to rebook the flight at no extra cost or change the itinerary. www.lufthansa.com
