The beginning of June will see Lufthansa increase the number of aircraft in service from 80 to 160, after the German flagship carrier grounded much of its 763-strong fleet due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group, which includes Swiss International Air Lines and Austrian Airlines, said it was responding to growing customer demand following the easing of restrictions in Germany and other countries.

Passengers will now be able to access over 100 destinations, including Mallorca, Sylt, Rostock and Crete.
Travellers will have to wear face-masks on board and have been advised to expect restrictions at destinations and longer waiting times at airport security.
