The youngest airline in the Lufthansa Group, Lufthansa City Airlines, will begin flight operations on June 26, 2024. The first flight VL2508 is scheduled to take off from Munich at 9:10 a.m. with an Airbus A320neo to Birmingham. Passengers can look forward to the proven Lufthansa customer experience and the most modern and efficient aircraft for short and medium-haul flights.

“Lufthansa City Airlines is aiming to successfully establish itself in the European short- and medium-haul segment from Munich and Frankfurt. This is a major investment in the future that will strengthen Germany as an aviation location and create numerous attractive jobs,” said Jens Fehlinger, Chief Operating Officer of Lufthansa City Airlines.

The routes offered have been available to book since April via the well-known Lufthansa Group sales channels using flight numbers with the new airline code “VL”. The first aircraft will initially fly to the first destinations of Birmingham, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Hanover and Bremen. From July 27, the second aircraft, an Airbus A319, will be serving Bordeaux, Hamburg and Berlin. With the planned fleet expansion, Lufthansa City Airlines will add further destinations in Europe to its network and gradually expand them.

After the first five aircraft of the Airbus A320 family, the fleet will be expanded to at least eight more A320neos and more A319s next year. Delivery of the 40 brand new aircraft of the fuel-efficient Airbus A220-300 type will begin in 2026.
