Refund and/or cancellation of the purchased ticket are dependent on the type of ticket purchased.

Flexible rebookings for all fares

We offer you maximum flexibility so that you can adapt your travel plans however you wish. Currently you have the option of rebooking any fares and ticket prices flexibly on short, medium and long-haul routes. This option applies to existing bookings and new bookings irrespective of the departure airport.

Rebooking options

As of March 19 we have implemented our new rebooking options that offer even greater flexibility. Already booked tickets for still existing flights no longer expire and can be rebooked until August 31, 2020. In addition, Lufthansa is now offering a 50 euro discount* for each rebooked ticket.  As our service centers are still facing a high volume of incoming calls and due to the flexible rebooking options offered, we kindly ask you to only contact our service center if you have a flight within the next 72 hours.

Passengers of cancelled or significantly delayed flights who choose not to make use of a flexible rebooking option can, of course, still request a refund. The same applies for passengers holding tickets with refundable fares, irrespective of the flight status. You can use either use the online refund option or contact our Service Center. However, we ask for your understanding that due to the high volume of requests, it might not be possible to process refunds within the usual time limits.
