Lufthansa Group airlines continue operating to the USA

  • Chicago, Newark (New York) and Washington will still be served
  • Special flight schedule for the USA will be available soon
  • Flight operations to Canada continue unchanged
  • The impact of the changes in the entry regulations for India is currently being assessed

Despite the new travel guidelines ordered by the US administration on passengers from the European Schengen zone, the Lufthansa Group airlines have said they will continue to offer flights to the USA from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.

In a March 12 statement, a statement from the group said it will continue operating flights from Frankfurt to Chicago and Newark (New York), from Zurich to Chicago and Newark (New York), from Vienna to Chicago, and from Brussels to Washington beyond March 14, thereby maintaining at least some air traffic connections to the USA from Europe. It said its airlines are currently working on an alternative flight schedule for the US and noted that passengers will still be able to reach all destinations within America via the US hubs and connecting flights served by partner airline, United Airlines.

In addition, all other US flights will be suspended until further notice due to US administration restrictions, including all departures from Munich, Düsseldorf and Geneva, but the group will continue to serve all destinations in Canada until further notice.

As planned, the Lufthansa Group’s airlines are offering 313 connections to 21 destinations in the USA from Europe in the winter schedule, which is still valid until March 28.

The Lufthansa Group added that it is still assessing the impact upon its flight programme caused by the recently changed entry regulations for India.

Lufthansa passengers planning a trip over the next few weeks are advised to check the status of the respective flight on lufthansa.com, swiss.com, austrian.com or brusselsairlines.com before embarking on their journey. Guests who have provided Lufthansa with their contact details will be informed if their flight is cancelled.
