This year’s aircraft fleet comprises four Airbus A319s transferred by the group. Two of them are already painted in City Airlines colors, which follows the Lufthansa standard.

In the coming months there will be the announcement of more routes in Europe, possibly with flights from Frankfurt as well.

The German group hopes to compete on better terms with budget carriers such as Ryanair and EasyJet and thus supply flights from its largest hubs in Germany.

To make the new venture viable, Lufthansa is looking for professionals in the market and also offering internal transfers, however, working conditions would be less attractive.

Amid preparations for the launch of City Airlines, the group faces strikes by ground staff and crew at Lufthansa and other subsidiaries such as Discover Airlines.

City Airlines is expected to rely on Airbus A220-300 jets from 2026 onwards, which promise a lower operating cost than the A319. Lufthansa announced a deal for 40 aircraft plus 20 purchase options in December.
