LONDON – According to data from AirNav RadarBox, Lufthansa’s flight movements increased by over 200% last week compared to the same period last year.
Data from February 12-19 shows that the German carrier operated 759 flights, which is a +203.60% increase compared to the same period last year.
2021 numbers for that week were at a measly 250, which came as no surprise due to the level of turmoil the carrier was in at that point, which since has been recovered nicely.
That being said, Lufthansa has a lot of work to do still.
The 2022 figures of 759 flights in that one thing is around half of what the airline achieved in 2020, which was 1,585 and 1,529 in 2019 respectively.
Even so, the 2022 numbers are looking to be in the middle at the moment.
As you can see on the above table, the carrier is yet to reach the 2019-20 threshold, which is what it will be seeking to do, especially in the Summer.
With countries around Europe looking at loosening COVID restrictions, this will no doubt come as a major help for the carrier moving forward.
