Our Europe fares

With the Europe fares offered by the Lufthansa Group airlines (Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines and SWISS), you are sure to find the fare that will perfectly suit your needs.

"Light" "Classic" or "Flex": you can choose between three Economy Class fares and only pay for the services and amenities that you actually want to use.

In addition, the amenities and services of Business Class are, of course, also available to you on all European flights. As previously, this includes our highest quality offer and meets the requirements of both business travellers and discerning private travellers.

Economy Light

The basic fare as the lowest-price option

The "Light" fare is ideal for you if you are only travelling with carry-on baggage and know exactly when you will be flying – because bookings cannot be changed nor tickets refunded. For a fee, you can add one piece of baggage and an advance seat reservation to your booking at any time.

Economy Classic

The standard fare with the usual inclusive services

The "Classic" fare is perfect if you do not want to forego the usual services and amenities and would also like a certain degree of flexibility, because the tickets can be rebooked if necessary on payment of a fee.

The flexible fare – because travel plans change

The "Flex" fare is intended above all for passengers who require greater flexibility when planning their journeys. It can be rebooked and even reimbursed for a fee.

Business Class

For relaxed travel and great comfort

Naturally, the comprehensive comfort of Business Class continues to be available to you. The seat next to you will be kept free and you will be able to enjoy many Business Class amenities – from lounge access to a free baggage allowance of two bags. As well as the fully flexible Business Flex fare, a restrictive Business Saver fare can also be booked on certain routes.
