Lufthansa brings back Frankfurt - Belgrade service


Lufthansa will resume services between Frankfurt and Belgrade in early July after initially suspending the route until late October. The German carrier will at first operate three weekly flights between the two cities starting July 8. It will complement its service from Munich to the Serbian capital which will be reinstated on June 23. As previously reported, Lufthansa will be resuming a number of flights in the coming days. Air Serbia recently announced it would boost its operations from Belgrade to Frankfurt to ten weekly from August, exceeding its pre-pandemic frequencies, due to Lufthansa’s absence. "We can see that people want to fly again. Flights to classic destinations in Europe are especially in demand on our website", Klaus Froese, the CEO of Lufthansa's Frankfurt Hub, said. He added, "We are well prepared for the increasing demand and have adapted our processes to the new conditions so that our guests can safely fly to their final destination".

    For JU FRA is a done deal, they used corona to get the slots they needed and since they started rebuilding their network much sooner they started selling flights and connections much faster. I think post-corona JU will be much stronger on this market.

      There is no codeshare between JU and LH and major point of FRA are connections.

      That's absolutely not true, FRA sees a great deal of local traffic because of gastos that live there. Also JU has its own transfers and now they will have even more than before corona because they will have morning flights.

      Still it is used mostly for trasfers around the world with Lufthansa. That is why is route to FRA important. And really from more than 300 destinations around the world where you can go via FRA with LH you are talking about 6 of them?

      "Also JU has its own transfers and now they will have even more than before corona because they will have morning flights." Hahaha. Yes connctions to all over the world with LH with many destinations in North America, Asia and Africa are absolutley useless in comparasion with JUs flights to Krasnodar, Cairo and Beirut. Well done! Oh yes im sorry! It seems that i forget flights to New York with even 6 WEEKLY flights. Lufthansa really became useless in terms of conecting the world via MUC and FRA when you have JU with 30 year old ATRs and 737s Classic. And overall, JU can operate A350-1000s not Lufthansa. Isnt that true?

      Don't you realize that nobody will fly BEG-FRA-SOF although SOF belongs to 1 of those 300 destinations? There are many of this kind of examples.

      These 6 are the most convinient and most often. Yuu can also include here KRR as well as planned (but due to crisis cancellled) KIV and ROV.

      For the size of JU it is quite satisfactory.

      Also, many people use LH for P2P, they do not make transfers only.

      Of course that nobody will use LH to get from Balkans to Balkans. That has no any logic. But from FRA you have options to North America, Asia, South America, West Europe which are very usefull in terms of connectivity between BEG and the rest of the world. You cannot just say that it is a same thing with JUs transfers to the Balkans.

      Of course not. It is pointless to compare JU and LH.

      My point was only to say that JU has on their flights from FRA also transfer passengers and there will be even more with morning flights.

      My guess is that BEG-FRA with LH has 40-50% transfers and FRA-BEG with JU 20-30% transfers

      It has sense to SJJ, TIV, TGD, SKP but still i will expect more transfers to FRA with LH maybe around 55-65%.

    I loved LH but after the way they behaved during the funding crisis I started hating them so much. Now I hope Wizz crushes their bastard child Eurowings in DUS.

    JU should have done in AMS the same thing they did in FRA.

    They realized they made a mistake, I mean, not flying to Belgrade for 6 months is crazy given that their flights were packed out of Belgrade pre-corona period.

      Transavia and SkyTeam were much smarter because they have a codeshare with JU and Transavia returns to BEG tomorrow

    LH Group will be in open war with LCCs so their domination will be challenged. I think OS as the weakest link will be the first to suffer the most.

  7. Crap. I hate flying LH to FRA from BEG. That bus ride from the airplane to the terminal doesn't cost much, just a little bit of my dignity.

  9. I wanted to know if Lufthansa are certain to operate MUC-BEG flight ? I’m flying CDG-BEG via MUC with them for holidays on 23rd July and I don’t want to see my flight being cancelled. I tried to contact LH, making search on their website but there’s nothing. Thank u ;)

      I am afraid no one will be able to guarantee that to you. With everything that is happening schedule changes remain highly likely. However I am sure that destination won't be cancelled. So if your flight on 23JUL gets cancelled most probably they will be able to rebook you day or two before of after.
      I know that it is not possible for everyone, but I personally wouldn't buy tickets now more than week in advance.
