Lufthansa to launch new routes and introduces helicopter services



Lufthansa is planning to launch new direct flights to popular holiday destinations in Mexico, the Maldives and Mauritius. Passengers, between 8 December 2015 and 11 April 2016, will be able to choose between two weekly flights each from Frankfurt to Cancún, Malé or Mauritius.

Flying with an Airbus A340-300 from the Lufthansa hub, passengers will be able to reach sandy beaches and exotic landscapes in comfort. Return flights to Cancún can already be booked from EUR 919, to Malé from EUR 629 and to Mauritius from EUR 799.

Lufthansa is launching a new helicopter service to the slopes this winter. A new helicopter service from Munich will commence on 1 January 2015. Whether it’s Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Zillertal, Kitzbühel, SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental or other resorts in the Alps – as long as there is a helipad on site, customers will be able to choose their own destination. The service can be booked now and will operate until the end of April.

In Munich, Lufthansa customers will be collected directly from their aircraft and looked after by Munich Airport’s VIP service. The company HTM Helicopter Travel Munich GmbH will then take them to their desired holiday destination.
