City Airlines is moving into the starting position. The Lufthansa Group's newly founded airline will begin flight operations in the summer of 2024. Until then, recruitment for pilots and flight crew is in full swing.

The main task of the Lufthansa Group's newly established City Airlines will be to strengthen the short-haul network, among other things by providing feeder services for Lufthansa. To this end, City Airlines will be positioned for the long term. This will create prospects for the coming decades, secure sustainable jobs in Germany and strengthen the hubs in Munich and Frankfurt.

City Airlines is starting with a fleet of A319s and plans to expand with additional aircraft of comparable size. Travelers can look forward to a traditional Lufthansa customer experience on board City Airlines.
