Lufthansa and Germanwings plan extensive cooperation
Closer cooperation between Lufthansa and Germanwings and a comprehensive package of measures will provide additional travel benefits for the customers of both airlines.
Starting on 1 September 2010, Miles & More members will be able not only to exchange miles on all Germanwings flights but also to collect award miles. From then on, the same fixed mileage amounts for individual booking classes that currently apply to Miles & More members on all Lufthansa flights will also apply on Germanwings flights.
The Germanwings frequent flyer programme, the Boomerang Club, will continue to exist independently of the Miles & More partnership. Before each flight, passengers who have both a Miles & More and a Boomerang Club card will be able to select the frequent flyer pro-gramme in which they wish to collect miles.
In the next phase of the cooperation, starting from the beginning of 2011, interline (i.e. com-binable) fares will be available for Lufthansa and Germanwings flights. This means that travel agencies and Lufthansa sales points (call centres and ticket counters at the airports) will be able to book and sell an outbound or return flight with both airlines in a single transaction and from a single source.
