In a statement, Lufthansa’s spokeswoman said, it is in talks with the German government over a $9.8 billion bailout package; it aims to resume flights to 20 destinations, including holiday hot spots, starting from mid-June.
Destinations include Rhodes, Mallorca, Faro, Crete, Venice, Malaga and Ibiza said Lufthansa’s spokeswoman while adding that flights would depart from Frankfurt.
Towards the end of next week, more destinations are likely to be announced.
The flight expansions comes less than two weeks after Lufthansa unveiled plans to resume flights to destinations including Mumbai, Los Angeles, and Toronto starting from June.
On Sunday, in an interview with Germany’s public broadcaster ZDF, German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said, Lufthansa will have to repay back the loan amount as soon as it turned a profit.
“This can take a few years. No one knows in advance,” said Altmaier.
