Lufthansa is adding 15 leisure new summer destinations to its summer 2021 schedule from its hub in Frankfurt. The new destinations will offer holidaymakers more options to explore cities in Europe, Egypt, and Tunisia. Lufthansa will offer 70 weekly connections to 29 leisure cities next summer, with a hope that demand will return by then.
Lufthansa’s new destinations are targeted at holidaymakers, and the airline has gone out of its way to attract them. Flights will depart from Frankfurt in the morning and arrive in the evening, to maximize time at the destinations. Most routes will see two weekly flights, with some also seeing three or a single flight every week.
The new routes are all short-haul ones mostly located in Europe, with one in Egypt and Tunisia. The destinations are:
- Greece (Corfu, Crete, Mykonos, Kos, Kavala, and Preveza)
- Spain (Jerez de la Frontera, Canary Islands, and Tenerife)
- Egypt (Hurghada)
- Cyprus (Paphos)
- Croatia (Rijeka)
- Italy (Lamezia Terme)
- Tunisia (Djerba)
- Bulgaria (Varna)
Deutsche Lufthansa AG commonly known as Lufthansa, is the largest German airline which, when combined with its subsidiaries, is the second largest airline in Europe in terms of passengers carried.

Besides its own services, and owning subsidiary passenger airlines Austrian Airlines, Swiss International Air Lines, Brussels Airlines, and Eurowings (referred to in English by Lufthansa as its Passenger Airline Group), Deutsche Lufthansa AG owns several aviation-related companies, such as Lufthansa Technik and LSG Sky Chefs, as part of the Lufthansa Group.
