Lufthansa Group

In order for passengers to feel comfortable traveling, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings have introduced many additional hygiene measures and adapted service procedures.

Safety first – with increased hygiene measures:

Whether it is at check-in, security, the gate, or when you are boarding, on the aircraft, disembarking, or at baggage reclaim, safety comes first. Travel in times of Corona Virus means adjustments to normal procedures. This is why the airlines of the Lufthansa Group have taken extraordinary measures to ensure that you can travel with peace of mind. Here are some of the many key measures they have introduced:

  • Mandatory mouth and nose protection: In order to protect the health of all persons on board, passengers and crew are required to wear mouth and nose protection while boarding, during the flight and when leaving the aircraft.
  • Additional hygiene services for passengers on board: Each passenger will receive a disinfectant wipe upon boarding which can be used for cleaning the surfaces around the seat.
  • Simplified onboard service: In order to minimize contact between guests and crew on board, the current in-flight service has been adapted and simplified.
  • Filters in aircraft: The air on board our aircraft circulates vertically and passes through highly effective filter systems, ensuring a complete air exchange within a few minutes. Thus, the excellent air quality, in combination with wearing a face-nose cover, offers such a high level of protection that it is not essential to maintain minimum distances to passengers in neighboring seats.


Cabins are thoroughly cleaned before and after each flight: Surfaces in aircraft (e.g. armrests, seat belts, seat belt fastenings/buckles, tables and toilet door handles) are being thoroughly cleaned using certified cleaning products.
