Lufthansa slashes winter flights by 10% - CEO

Thursday, 23. December 2021 15:40

Deutsche Lufthansa AG will have to remove some 33,000 flights, or 10%, from its winter schedule, CEO Carsten Spohr said on Thursday.

The decrease in demand for tickets was particularly apparent in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Belgium, as the four were hit hard by the pandemic's latest wave, Spohr said in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.

The company would have canceled some 18,000 flights more, but cannot do so due to its legal obligations, he concluded.
