All the road, rail and helicopter services that Lufthansa provides to get travellers to and from their airport of departure or arrival are to be operated under a single ‘Lufthansa Express’ brand name.
By bringing these various services under a single brand name, Lufthansa is offering a wide range of local or regional travel options from a single source that customers can use individually in addition to their Lufthansa flight. The new brand will further be home to Rail & Fly in collaboration with Lufthansa Express, to Lufthansa Express Helicopter and to Lufthansa Express Chauffeur. A further new service, Lufthansa Express Carsharing, will also be added soon.
“Our intermodal strategy is designed to provide our customers with a travel process that is as smooth and seamless as possible, from their region of origin right through to their final air destination or vice versa,” says Markus Pauly, Lufthansa’s Director of Infrastructure & Development at its Frankfurt hub. “In doing so, we can tangibly enhance their overall travel experience, by offering them all the mobility options they need within our service portfolio.”
Lufthansa also plans to provide inbound travelers with a new Express Shuttle service to and from alpine ski resorts and with Lufthansa Express Helicopter, customers can make their onward journey faster and privately by air.
The Lufthansa Express Chauffeur facility is provided in collaboration with Fraport, with the limousine service ferrying up to four persons from home to their departure gate inclusive baggage check-in from EUR 129.
