After losing the battle for Europe’s largest airline to Ryainair last year, it seems Germany’s flagship carrier Lufthansa is getting creative. Lufthansa’s budget unit Eurowings is testing tickets that are valid for 10 trips.
Whoever is interested can make reservations on the dedicated website flightpass.de and will receive a notification once the product, being called “flightpass,” is available. The offer includes three categories: Students pay €499 ($529) for 10 one-way flights and can choose routes within Germany and Europe. For €699, adults can travel between two German cities, while business class travelers can purchase 10 domestic flights for prices starting at €1,499.
However, there is some fine print to the offer. Passengers need to check if the ticket is actually available for their preferred route and book 21 days in advance. At the same time, the flights need to be used up within six months.
Eurowings claims to have developed the offer according to a demand analysis of its own customers. Depending on the number of people who register on the website in the coming weeks, Eurowings wants to decide if the offer will hit the market on a larger scale.
