Lufthansa brings transport options under one banner


All the road, rail and helicopter services that Lufthansa provides to get travellers to and from their airport of departure or arrival are to be operated under a single ‘Lufthansa Express’ brand name.

By bringing its various services under a single brand name, Lufthansa will offer a range of local or regional travel options from a single source that customers can book individually in addition to their Lufthansa flight.

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 change to Lufthansa Express Shuttle. The new brand will further be home to Rail & Fly in collaboration with Lufthansa Express, changing names to Lufthansa Express Helicopter and Lufthansa Express Chauffeur. A further new service – Lufthansa Express Carsharing – should also be added soon.

In addition to the planned expansion of the current Lufthansa Express Bus services to and from Munich Airport, Lufthansa also plans to provide inbound travellers with a new Express Shuttle service to and from alpine ski resorts.
