Lufthansa brings short-haul flights under low-cost unit
FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Lufthansa will bring together its European and German domestic routes under a new low-cost brand from next year as it seeks to make a profit from short-haul routes in the face of competition from low-cost carriers.
From January 1, 2013, Lufthansa flights within Germany and Europe, excluding those from its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich, will be merged with its low-cost airline Germanwings, it said on Wednesday.
The service will carry over 18 million passengers in its first year. Lufthansa (LHAG.DE), Germany's largest airline, carries around 106 million passengers a year. (Reporting by Victoria Bryan)
