The airline will start operations with two Airbus A319 aircraft (two more will take flight later this year). Its eventual goal is to have a fleet of Airbus A220-300s (up to 60 of these are on order from Lufthansa Group). Deliveries will begin in 2026.

Jens Fehlinger, Managing Director of City Airlines, explained the new airline’s focus:

With City Airlines, we want to create prospects for the coming decades and secure sustainable jobs in Germany. This is the only way for us to grow and sustainably strengthen the hubs in Munich and Frankfurt.”

Anthony’s Take: The Lufthansa Group has so many airlines within its portfolio. It seems like this new one serves no purpose other than for Lufthansa to navigate complicated labor agreements and pay employees less at this low-cost subsidiary.
