"With the June flight schedule, we are making an important contribution to the revitalisation of the aviation infrastructure. It is an essential part of the German and European economic power. People want to and can travel again, whether on holiday or for business reasons. That is why we will continue to expand our offer step by step in the coming months and connect Europe with each other and Europe with the world," says Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of German Lufthansa AG.

In the first half of June, the flight schedule also includes 19 long-haul destinations, fourteen more than in May.
