The airline company Lufthansa rekindled its relationship between Munich And beijingsuspended since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, almost three years after resuming that between Frankfurt and the Chinese capital.
Since July 1, 2023, the German flag carrier has offered three flights per week between its base in Munich-Frantz Josef Strauss and the airport of Beijing-Capital, operated by Airbus A350-900 that can accommodate 48 passengers in Business class, 21 in Premium and 224 in Economy (or in 30+24+241, 293 or 295 seats). Departures from Bavaria are scheduled for Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 6:55 p.m. to arrive the next day at 11:15 a.m., with return flights taking off from China on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 12:55 p.m. to land at 7:05 p.m.
Lufthansa faces its codeshare partner on this route and in Star Alliance Air China, whose rotations between the two cities should resume in early August.
The German company had relaunched the Frankfurt – Beijing line at the end of October 2020, barely nine months after having suspended it due to a health crisis. She is also back to Shanghai-Pudongfrom its two bases.
China being “an important market”, the Lufthansa group including all subsidiaries should operate more than 40 weekly flights to the country this summer.
