Data Protection, advertising and deletion of accounts
You can delete your Travel ID account in your profile under "Your profile information". If you have linked your Travel ID with Miles & More, and you wish to delete both accounts, you must first cancel your membership of the Miles & More programme. Please contact your Miles & More Team in order to do so.
You can opt out of receiving advertising communications by changing your preferences in your profile under "Communication settings".
You can opt out of your data being used by deactivating "Consent to personalised communication" in your profile under "Communication settings".
Data protection is very important to us. The Lufthansa Group does not sell any customer data or share data with third parties.
Your Travel ID is personal to you. To avoid misuse, you should not share your login details. This recommendation also forms part of our data protection policy.
Flights and bookings
Your booking appears automatically in your Travel ID profile if you make the booking while you are logged into lufthansa.com or you are using the Lufthansa app. You can also add a booking to your account at any time later on.
Log into lufthansa.com with your Travel ID. Click on your name in the top right corner. A menu will appear. Select "My bookings". You will be taken to your bookings, where you will be able to add bookings.
As soon as the switchover starts, you will be automatically guided through the process when you log in to your Lufthansa iD profile. The switchover phase will take approximately four weeks.
The switchover phase starts at different times for Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian and Miles & More. You will be invited to make the switch at the appropriate time.
All profile details and bookings stored in the profile through which you make the switch will be transferred to the Travel ID profile. You can access this data as usual in your Travel ID profile.
Once you have successfully switched to Travel ID, your old Lufthansa iD profile will no longer be accessible. Your data will continue to be available to you in your Travel ID.
Once the switchover phase has finished, your old Lufthansa iD profile will be deleted and will no longer be accessible to you.
The switchover takes place in several phases. If you have both a Lufthansa iD profile and a Miles & More account, we recommend switching to Travel ID via your Miles & More account. We will let you know as soon as this switch is possible. There is no need for you to take any action until then.
The switchover phase has ended, and you have not switched your profile to Travel ID.
No, it will be deleted automatically.
No, as a Miles & More member you do not have to re-register, your account will stay the same. Please switch via your Miles & More account so that you can use all the features of Travel ID as well. This starts in November. Your Miles & More account will then be merged with the Travel ID features. As soon as the Miles & More switchover starts, you will be automatically guided through the process after logging in.
No, you don’t. We recommend switching to retain your profile details, and to be able to use all the features of Travel ID. If you do not switch during the four-week switchover process, your Lufthansa iD profile will be deleted.
The switch will be possible for all airline profiles. We recommend switching your most-used airline profile. You can add all bookings to your Travel ID profile.
Once you have switched to Travel ID you will no longer have access to your old Lufthansa iD profile. This will be deleted once the switchover period has elapsed. Profile information and bookings stored in your profile will be transferred to your new Travel ID profile when you make the switch. This means that you will still have access to your profile information. Miles & More members who have inadvertently created a second Miles & More account while registering for Travel ID can contact the Miles & More Service Center to regain access to their account.
Please contact the Lufthansa Service Center.
If you are already logged in when you click on the link, you need to log out first and then log in again. You will then be automatically redirected to switching to Travel ID.
Deactivation Lufthansa iD
Yes, we have sent several information emails. The airline IDs will be deactivated in January 2023 and superseded by Travel ID. If you would like to retain your data, please switch to Travel ID.
