Lufthansa to bring all its road, rail and helicopter airport transport options under the “Lufthansa Express” banner
All the road, rail and helicopter services that Lufthansa provides to get travelers to and from their airport of departure or arrival are to be operated under a single “Lufthansa Express” brand name.
By bringing these various services under a single brand name, Lufthansa is offering a wide range of local or regional travel options from a single source that customers can book individually in addition to their Lufthansa flight. In concrete terms, the current AIRail service will now be known as Lufthansa Express Rail, Lufthansa Airport Bus becomes Lufthansa Express Bus and the present Airport Shuttle Service will now be publicized as Lufthansa Express Shuttle. The new brand will further be home to Rail & Fly in collaboration with Lufthansa Express, to Lufthansa Express Helicopter and to Lufthansa Express Chauffeur. A further new service – Lufthansa Express Carsharing – should also be added soon.
“Our intermodal strategy is designed to provide our customers with a travel process that is as smooth and seamless as possible, from their region of origin right through to their final air destination or vice versa,” says Markus Pauly, Lufthansa’s Director of Infrastructure & Development at its Frankfurt hub. “In doing so, we can tangibly enhance their overall travel experience, by offering them all the mobility options they need within our service portfolio.”
In expanding and further refining its range of mobility options to and from the airport, Lufthansa Express is also working closely with strong system partners. The Lufthansa Express Chauffeur facility, for instance, is provided in collaboration with Fraport, with the limousine service ferrying up to four persons from home to their departure gate inclusive baggage check-in for as little as EUR 129.
All Lufthansa Express services can be booked online at LH.com, via the Lufthansa app or with any travel agency.
