We are processing around 1,700 refund applications per hour and so far have reimbursed over three billion euros  

The number of ticket refunds still open decreased to around 700,000 transactions worth around 350 million euros. Due to regular changes of travel restrictions taken by the authorities, our flight schedules have been changed at short notice. This leads to unavoidable flight cancellations. The associated refund applications are processed as quickly as possible. Therefore, the number of open refund applications will continue to develop dynamically, decrease further in the coming weeks, but will not reach zero.

Across all Lufthansa Group departments, we are working continuously and intensively to further speed up processing. Therefore, the capacity in the customer service centers has been tripled, and it has even been quadrupled in travel agency sales. Numerous employees from other departments have been activated to provide support and have been released from short-time working in return. Currently, around 1,700 applications per hour can be processed.

We are making flying even safer with our first trial run for Covid-19 antigen rapid tests

Lufthansa Group will start the first test runs for comprehensive Covid-19 antigen rapid tests on selected Lufthansa routes between Munich and Hamburg. In close cooperation with Munich and Hamburg airports as well as with the biotech companies Centogene and the Medicover Group's medical care center, MVZ Martinsried, Lufthansa is offering its customers the opportunity to be tested for Covid-19 free of charge before departure on two daily flights. Passengers who do not wish to be tested will be transferred to an alternative flight at no additional cost.

Once the test is completed, customers receive their test results within 60 minutes. Only if the result is negative will the boarding pass be activated and access to the gate be granted. Alternatively, passengers can present a negative PCR test not older than 48 hours at departure. Lufthansa takes care of the complete rapid test procedure.

In case you are booked or you plan to book one of your employees on respective test flights, please note that there are no extra costs for the passenger or your company.
