A group of European airlines began announcing the expansion of flight schedules starting from next July, in light of a number of countries taking decisions to gradually lift travel restrictions in front of tourism.
Among the most prominent airlines that announced the expansion of their schedules are German Airlines, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Swiss Air, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings, as airlines are now expanding their services significantly in the coming weeks and months.
This applies to both short trips and long trips, and the expansion of flight schedules by offering the largest possible number of destinations.
Next September, about 90% of all planned short and medium-haul destinations will be served by those lines, and 70% of long-distance destinations will be served again.
From June 8 onwards, all passengers are required to wear a mouth and nose mask on board the aircraft throughout the entire journey, and the General Conditions of Transport (GTC) will be adjusted accordingly, and this will continue until a vaccine is introduced to the virus and people vaccinated with it to protect them from infection and thus things return to normal.
