Lufthansa predicts 60-70% of pre-pandemic passenger numbers by end of 2021
Lufthansa is targeting 60-70% of pre-pandemic passenger numbers by the end of the year, said a manager at the airline.
Passenger numbers at the German carrier are currently around 40% of pre-pandemic levels and it is running around 55% of the flights it used to.
The carrier has increased the number of destinations to 192 but it is flying many of its routes less frequently. It currently has 520 aircraft in use, down from the 800 it used to operate before the pandemic.
"We started into the summer with about 10% of passengers and 15% of flights compared to pre-crisis levels", Jens Fehlinger said, according to Reuters.
