Lufthansa is introducing a new price concept for flights in Europe. The new Economy Class fare options Light, Classic and Flex will apply from 1st October 2015 for domestic and European flights and will offer different services depending on the price. For example, within Economy Class passengers can select services according to their individual wishes. The booked fare can be complemented with additional services by individually adding further options.
Jens Bischof, member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board and Chief Commercial Officer of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, said: “It is the wish of many customers to only pay for the services they actually make use of. With this new fare concept, we are doing just that. In the future, given this flexibility, every passenger will be able to individually create a tailor-made flight with the various service components that we are offering. The price options Light, Classic and Flex are more transparent and allow customers in Economy Class a selection of fare options within Europe.”
The new fare concept is being introduced during the course of the Lufthansa sales strategy realignment. The various fare options differentiate themselves in the areas of free luggage, seat reservations, as well as rebooking and cancellations options. The choice will now consist of a fully flexible Business Class fare and three new Economy Class fares.
