Due to the exceptional circumstances caused by the spread of the coronavirus, Lufthansa had reduced flight schedules of its passenger airlines for the period from March 29 to April 24. For all passenger airlines in the group, a total of 23,000 flights were cancelled. Further cancellations also took place in the coming weeks. Flight schedule adjustments for the period after April 25 were to be made at a later date.
Recently, as the spread of the virus has slowed down, Lufthansa has started offering a resumed flight service from Dubai to Frankfurt, with three weekly departures, starting early June.
The Lufthansa Group connections for the United Arab Emirates will commence (subject to government approval) on Sunday June 7, when the Lufthansa flight LH 630 from FRA to DXB will take off from Frankfurt at 2:10pm and arrive in Dubai at 10:35pm (local time). Flights will continue between the destinations every second day, with the LH 631 from DXB to FRA commencing on Tuesday June 9.

When planning their trip, customers should consider the current entry and quarantine regulations of the respective destinations.
