To ensure that passengers who are not German speakers and who are boarding or transferring at Frankfurt or Munich, can always find their way around the airport quickly, Lufthansa offers the Lufthansa Guide Service as well as the Lufthansa Family Service, which is designed to meet the needs of families travelling together.
Lufthansa Guide Service: we speak your language
Lufthansa offers a Guide Service to international passengers, business travellers, groups and passengers who may, for example, need help finding their way to a connecting flight at the airport or who would like an exclusive passenger chaperone service. They will be met by a special Lufthansa guide directly at their gate or at another rendezvous point and accompanied to their destination - for example, to a connecting flight, train, hotel, shuttle bus or to the airport lounge. Lufthansa guides will always be on hand to answer your questions - and in more than 30 languages. A charge is made for the Lufthansa Guide Service.
Lufthansa Family Service: relaxed travel with the whole family
The Lufthansa guides from the Lufthansa Family Service ensure a relaxed start to a holiday by helping families, who are boarding or transferring at Frankfurt or Munich, to find their way around the airport.
Parents travelling alone with children, in particular, find this a huge help. For example, the guides take them to check-in, where they explain the security regulations, accompany them to their gate and, on landing, to baggage reclaim, but also to restaurants, hotels or car rental companies.
The Lufthansa Family Service is also very happy to help older members of the family. If the passenger can only walk slowly, the guides gauge the time needed to change flights or if required, accompany the elderly person to the chemist or to a seat.
The Lufthansa Family Guides are on hand with help and advice in more than 30 languages, making this service above all a helpful support to families from abroad.
Available languages for the Lufthansa Guide Service and the Lufthansa Family Service
All our guides speak German and English. For an additional charge of € 30, Lufthansa Guides are also available to assist you with any questions or problems in more than 30 languages.
