Lufthansa Express Takes Off at Frankfurt and Munich Hubs

All the road, rail and helicopter services that Lufthansa’s Irish passengers can avail of at Frankfurt and Munich Airports are to be operated under one brand name, Lufthansa Express. They include high-speed ICE trains, modern long-distance buses, limousines and helicopter services.

The existing AIRail service will now be called Lufthansa Express Rail, Lufthansa Airport Bus becomes Lufthansa Express Bus and the Airport Shuttle Service will now be known as Lufthansa Express Shuttle. The new brand will also apply to Rail & Fly in collaboration with Lufthansa Express, to Lufthansa Express Helicopter and to Lufthansa Express Chauffeur. A further newservice, Lufthansa Express Carsharing, will also be added soon.

“Our intermodal strategy is designed to provide our customers with a travel process that is as smooth and seamless as possible, from their region of origin right through to their final air destination or vice versa,” said Markus Pauly, Director of Infrastructure and Development at Lufthansa’s Frankfurt hub. “In doing so, we can tangibly enhance their overall travel experience by offering them all the mobility options they need within our service portfolio.”

In addition to the planned expansion of the current Lufthansa Express Bus services to and from Munich Airport, Lufthansa also plans to provide inbound travellers with a new Express Shuttle service to and from alpine ski resorts.
