The hunger for travel and longing for a true Summer relax are getting stronger. With gradual loosening of restrictions in regard to traveling, enjoying the Summer with the sound of waves crashing onto the shore and feel of soft sea breeze is a feasible possibility once again.
Since July, the expanded flight network of Lufthansa Group includes many sunny destinations open for tourists from Poland, including Greece, Malta and Portugal.
“Restoring connections offered in Polish cities is an important step both for Lufthansa Group and our passengers” said Frank Wagner, Country Manager Lufthansa Group Poland. “Thanks to connecting them to Lufthansa Group hub airports, they also are given access to our wide, international network of flights and many popular tourist destinations”.
The safety and health of its passengers and employees is a top priority for the Lufthansa Group. For this reason, all procedures throughout the entire travel chain have been and will continue to be reviewed in order to guarantee the safety of everyone. To this effect, Lufthansa is offering customers a certified PCR test for Covid-19 at its hubs in Germany to avoid mandatory quarantine measures currently in place. These test centres are operated by partner companies, including Centogene at Frankfurt Airport and Medicare at Munich Airport. Since 4 May, all passengers are required to wear a face mask onboard Lufthansa Group flights and encouraged to do so throughout the airport.
Wonders of Greece
Greece is a unique country, mixing modernity with a few thousand years of tradition. A walk in the shadow of the relics of the Ancients in the continental part of Greece, like the Acropolis in Athens, allows to experience first-hand what was left behind by one of the oldest civilizations in the world and the birthplace of European culture.
Flights to the historical cities Athens and Thessaloniki are operated from hub airports in Frankfurt and Munich. From both of these airports one can also travel to Heraklion. This picturesque city is located in Crete – the biggest Greek island merging a distinctive mountain climate with the comforts of sea resorts. Crete isn’t, however, the only Greek island available for the passengers of Lufthansa Group. It’s carriers also operate flights to Zakynthos and Rhodes. Both destinations are continuously popular among Polish tourists.
The Mediterranean Sea is sprinkled with over two hundred isles, but only one of its many archipelagos is a sovereign state. Malta welcomes tourists with beautiful beaches, like the stunning Blue Lagoon and St. Peter’s Pool.
It is also a place with history reaching 3500 BC. The megalithic temples of Malta were constructed around that period, and among them the oldest and best preserved is the Ġgantij complex, included on the list on UNESCO world heritage list. Connoisseurs of modernity will also find here something for themselves in the vast collection of modern art open for visitors at St. John’s Cavalier Art Centre.
Portugal – for those who like to stay active amidst waves and history
Atlantic shores of Portugal are awe-inspiring to some, but for others – they are a challenge. Oceanic waves work like a magnet for the lovers of water sports from all over the worlds, and this country is considered a paradise on Earth for surfers. Here the best spots in Europe, and one of the best in the world, are located on over 800 km of shoreline.
Madeira, an island located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, welcomes those who simply want to relax. Lufthansa Group is offering flights from its hub airports to Lisbon, Porto and Faro, as well as Funchal Madeira.
Lufthansa Group in Poland
With the beginning of July, Lufthansa Group had significantly increased its offer in Poland. By October its carriers will offer 140 weekly flights from 6 Polish airports: Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Katowice, Gdansk and Poznan. Passengers from every corner of Poland have now access to the international network of flights offered from the Group’s hub airports.
When planning their trip, customers should take the current entry and quarantine regulations of the respective destinations into account.
