Fanhansa: Lufthansa Gears Up for European Football Championship



Excitement for Euro 2024, the European Football Championship, is soaring across Europe, and Lufthansa is at the heart of the action.

From June 14th to July 14th, the Lufthansa Group airlines are seeing a surge in bookings. So far, an estimated 200,000 additional passengers heading to the host cities in Germany.

To accommodate this influx of fans, Lufthansa has added numerous flights, particularly on routes connecting Germany with Great Britain.

“As a proud partner of the German national team, we’re thrilled to be a part of this momentous event,” says Heiko Reitz, Chief Commercial Officer, Lufthansa Airlines.

“We’re especially excited to welcome football fans from all over the world to Germany and make their journey a truly memorable experience.”

Football fever is gripping Europe, and Germany is at the heart of the action! From June 14th to July 14th, the prestigious European Football Championship (Euro 2024) will be held across ten German cities.

This highly anticipated tournament will see 24 national teams compete for the coveted title, and Lufthansa is proud to be a part of the excitement.

The magic of the European Championship begins the moment you step aboard a “Fanhansa” aircraft.

Six Airbus A320s have been specially decorated to celebrate the tournament, both inside and out.

From custom headrests to “Breakfast for Champions” food trays, every detail is designed to get you in the football spirit. And to further sweeten the deal, all Fanhansa flights will serve special European Championship chocolates.

EU Championship Fan Scarf

A limited-edition European Championship fan scarf, designed to reflect Lufthansa’s global network, has quickly become a coveted souvenir.

An oversized version of the scarf can be seen on the façade of Terminal 2 in Munich. This further lifts the excitement for this summer’s major sporting events.
