Covid-19: Lufthansa to release employees with medical training to volunteer for help
At the Lufthansa Group airlines, employees who have completed medical training may now be released quickly on unbureaucratic voluntary basis for specific work in a medical facility. Detailed information on the programme will be released soon.
In order to bring as many people as possible back home quickly, the Lufthansa Group airlines are operating numerous special flights all over the world. In close consultation with the governments of their home markets and on behalf of tourism companies and cruise lines, Lufthansa Group airlines are currently offering around 140 special flights.
More than 20,000 passengers are thus flying home with Lufthansa, Eurowings, Swiss, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Edelweiss. Further special flights will follow in the next few days. In addition, the Lufthansa Group is making every effort to ensure that the flow of cargo in Germany and Europe does not come to a standstill. Lufthansa Cargo continues to fly its regular program, except for cancellations to mainland China, and keeps the entire freighter fleet in the air.
