Seatbelts must be kept fastened on board

 

New rules in the interest of passenger safety

In the event of unexpected turbulence, injuries are often the result on board passenger aircraft, whereby this could be prevented in many cases if passengers kept their seatbelts fastened. For that reason, up to now Lufthansa has recommended that passengers keep their seatbelts fastened. In the interest of the safety of its passengers, the airline has now decided to make it generally compulsory to fasten seatbelts. Passengers will still be allowed to stand up, for example, to stretch their legs or to visit the toilet, unless fasten seatbelt signs are switched on. The new regulation also applies to Lufthansa Regional partners. Incidentally, the aircraft itself is designed to resist the extra strain resulting from turbulence without any significant damage.

For your safety

Lufthansa recommend keeping the seatbelt fastened.
