Lufthansa continued its growth path and added another 1,000 flight to its schedule in September. As a result, the German flag carrier operated more than 26,000 flights — 4% more than in August. Accordingly, this is the highest flight volume since the pandemic breakout.
In September, Lufthansa continued to struggle in terms of punctuality. Almost every fifth flight arrived late at its destinations. However, compared to August, Lufthansa slightly improved its on-time performance by 4%. Nevertheless, Lufthansa's September results are still below the carrier's annual average — and far below Europe's top airlines in terms of punctuality.
Contrary to its on-time performance, Lufthansa delivered excellent results when it comes to schedule reliability. Although 1pp below last month's result, Lufthansa achieved strong reliability of 99.7%. Moreover, the result is perfectly in line with the carrier's annual average.
Flight Volume — 6 Months History
Despite the end of the holiday season, Lufthansa continued on its moderate growth path in September. However, with fewer than 1,000 daily flights, the German airline is still far from pre-COVID flight volume. Moreover, Lufthansa currently operates only half the flights Ryanair does.
