Lufthansa expands Private Jet service

Wider selection and more flexibility in cooperation with NetJets Europe

Fast, exclusive and flexible – the Lufthansa Private Jet brand has won over numerous customers with a preference for individual travel in superlative comfort since the service was introduced in 2005.  Spurred by rising demand, the service is now to be expanded in exclusive cooperation with NetJets Europe, Europe’s leading private jet operator. Bookings in Europe will be accepted at short notice up to ten hours prior to flight departure. Moreover, Lufthansa Private Jet is planning to expand in the Middle East and the USA in the course of the year. 

Aside from a significantly enhanced product with superior business jets including small, medium and large cabins, Lufthansa Private Jet customers will profit from a new and more transparent pricing policy. They can book an optional limousine service to and from their flight or have a flight attendant for in-flight service on board when travelling in the service’s mid to large-size jets.  The existing fixed price system based on the aircraft size and route but independent of the number of passengers will be continued.  

The aircraft available in the service vary in size and range to suit individual requirements. The smallest category includes, for example, the Hawker 400 XP for up to 7 passengers with a maximum range of 2,161 kilometres. The Cessna Citation XLS can transport up to 7 passengers over a range of 3,305 kilometres. The largest type of aircraft, such as the Gulfstream G 550, accommodates 14 passengers and with a range of 11,911 kilometres is suitable for intercontinental routes. For flights of up to an hour on such routes as Munich-Milan, the Hawker can be booked for a basic price from 5,650 euros. Lufthansa Private Jet flights can be booked either individually for point-to-point flights or for seamless connections with long-haul flights in the global route network operated by Lufthansa and SWISS.

For further information and bookings, a professional service team is available 24/7 reachable by phone at +49 (0) 18 02 99 33 00.  Alternatively, the number to reach in the UAE is +971 50 6242238. Miles & More members earn 10,000 miles for each flight they book.
