Lufthansa and Germanwings are marginally expanding their services in the winter flight schedules.
Their joint capacity in terms of available seat-kilometers will increase overall by 1.1%. This growth is attributable to the deployment of larger aircraft.
The Lufthansa Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-8 will commence flights from Frankfurt to Chicago when the winter timetable comes into force. In addition, services will be increased to daily flights on connections from Frankfurt to Philadelphia on the US East Coast and to Dammam in Saudi Arabia in order to accommodate growing demand.
The airline will again be flying as non-stop in winter from Munich to Cape Town.
