Lufthansa said that a new low-fare concept introduced in Hamburg last October is off to a successful start.The carrier discussed Program Hamburg with journalists Monday. The project is designed to achieve 20% higher productivity--resulting in lower production costs--and a capacity increase in Hamburg of 40%. Similar to low-cost airlines, LH offers 20% of its seats at fares starting from ?99 ($118.8) including taxes and serves 23 direct destinations from the city.
EDIT: Very interesting that they are also able to cut maintenance cost. Will this develop to all European flights as well?
