Ticket Refunds

Tickets purchased at a travel agency
If you purchased an electronic ticket or a paper ticket from a travel agency (including online agencies), please contact your travel agent directly. Your travel agent is the responsible party to review and process any refund due.

Tickets purchased directly from Lufthansa
All refunds due will be issued to the original form of payment in accordance with the conditions of the fare type purchased. Please note that some tickets are wholly non-refundable, or require a service fee, which will be deducted from the refund amount.

If you are requesting a refund for a wholly unused etix,
please complete the online request form here.

If you are requesting a refund for a partially used or replacement etix,
please complete the online request form here.

You can also check the status of a previously submitted refund request here.


If the ticket was purchased from Lufthansa directly and could not be used due to illness or death of the traveler, traveling companion, or immediate family member, please submit your request with the respective documentation to:

Lufthansa German Airlines
Attention: Ticketing Refunds
1640 Hempstead Turnpike
East Meadow, NY 11554

Please note that any refund in the above cases is dependent upon the fare type purchased.


Denied Boarding Compensation (DBC) vouchers
Reimbursement requests for Denied Boarding Compensation (DBC) vouchers received from Lufthansa must be submitted via mail to:

Lufthansa German Airlines
Attention: DBC department
1640 Hempstead Turnpike
East Meadow, NY 11554

It is suggested to send your DBC voucher via certified mail, registered mail, or courier service as lost vouchers can not be replaced or reissued. Please keep a copy of the voucher for your own records.

Should you suspect any fraudulent activity on a Lufthansa transaction, please report these charges directly to the card issuer by using the phone number found on the back of your credit or debit card.
