Lufthansa expects
Due to a lack of workers, the German airline Lufthansa has announced that it will cancel nearly 2,000 extra flights at its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich. Flight cancellations are also anticipated at its low-cost affiliate, Eurowings.

The German airline Lufthansa stated that it won't be until the following year that flying operations will resume as usual.

"Unfortunately, we will hardly be able to realistically achieve a short-term improvement now in the summer," Lufthansa board member Detlef Kayser told the Saturday edition of Die Welt newspaper.

"We expect the situation to return to normal by 2023," he added.

The firm stated it is cancelling over 2,000 additional flights at its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich owing to workforce shortages because it feels that at this time, lowering the number of flights is the only viable option.

The announcement comes two weeks after it said it would cancel 900 connections in July.

Lufthansa's low-cost subsidiary Eurowings is also expected to cancel flights.

However, neither Lufthansa nor Eurowings want to significantly reduce the number of flights to well-known vacation spots.

Instead, flights inside Germany and Europe will be reduced if rail or other modes of transportation are available.
