Many people in the region have been waiting for this: Lufthansa will be connecting Leipzig / Halle Airport with Frankfurt again from June 28, 2021. The scheduled flights are offered up to eight times a week.
Lufthansa plans to continuously expand the service to the Frankfurt hub to 14 weekly flights over the course of the summer.
As a result of the pandemic, the Leipzig / Halle – Frankfurt connection has been suspended since March 18, 2020.
Offers from Dresden
Lufthansa has been serving the Dresden – Frankfurt route for a year now – after only a seven-week interruption as a result of the pandemic. The flights are offered daily. Up to three connections per day between Dresden and Frankfurt are planned from July. Lufthansa flies to the Munich hub from Wednesdays to Sundays and Mondays.
From August the connection will be operated daily.
Götz Ahmelmann, CEO of Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG: We are delighted that Lufthansa is again represented at both airports. This is an optimistic signal and an important step towards connecting the Central Germany region to the airline’s global route network as required.

Protecting health is a top priority
Central German airports already took extensive precautions to protect the health of passengers, visitors, partners and employees after the first lockdown last year.
A medical mouth and nose cover must be worn in the terminals. There are machines in front of the buildings where FFP2 masks are available.
Protective plastic panes were installed at the check-in counters and at the boarding pass control. Monitors, signs and announcements remind passengers and visitors to comply with the rules of conduct and hygiene. There are also markings on the floor to remind people of the applicable distance rules at check-in and security checks, for example. Seating options in the terminals are also marked with distance markings.
It is also compulsory to wear mouth and nose protection on board during the flight. Passengers should find out about the applicable provisions in advance from their airline or their tour operator. The same applies to the entry regulations of the destination country and the hygiene rules applicable there.
Notes for passengers
In order to be able to take their flight as relaxed as possible, passengers should be at the airport at least 2.5 hours before departure and use the online check-in. The pandemic makes additional formalities necessary at the check-in, so you should plan longer waiting times than usual.
A maximum of 1 piece of hand luggage is allowed on board.
