Lufthansa passengers will now benefit from an automatic check-in procedure for all flights within Germany and to destinations in Europe. The boarding pass for flights booked up to 24 hours before departure will then be sent automatically to the passenger 23 hours before departure – with no need for any manual check-in, thus saving time and making travel preparations easier.
All the road, rail and helicopter services that Lufthansa UK passengers can take advantage of when using Frankfurt and Munich airports are to be operated under a single Lufthansa Express brand name. Be it with high-speed ICE trains, modern long-distance buses, limousines or helicopter services, Lufthansa and its various transport partners offer customers a wide range of travel options to or from the airline’s two airport hubs to further enhance their overall travel experience.
This month is the tenth anniversary of the Lufthansa AIRail service operated in collaboration with Deutsche Bahn (DB) and Fraport on the Cologne-Frankfurt route. Since 5 May 2003, Lufthansa passengers have been able to use ICE trains as a feeder service from Cologne to Frankfurt Airport with just their flight ticket. In 2011, some 290,000 passengers travelled to and from Germany’s largest airport on up to 26 daily connections. This represents an increase of more than 20 per cent compared with the previous year.
