Lufthansa and Austrian fly from five Australian cities via 13 gateways in Asia, North America and Africa, in conjunction with partner airlines through its hubs, to Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna and beyond.

This gives you many ways of travelling to Europe — for example, you could fly via Singapore, Bangkok or Hong Kong and come back via San Francisco, Los Angeles or even Buenos Aires — all for the same fare.

With Lufthansa and Austrian you can reach more than 120 destinations in Europe. And why not consider additional stops? These can be easily added and sometimes for no extra air fare!

Fly to Munich via Singapore (Australia to Singapore on Singapore Airlines), visit Berlin, make your own way to London, then depart Europe via Frankfurt and return via San Francisco (San Francisco to Sydney on Qantas or United). You’ve just explored six great cities on one ticket for one price!

And you can start spoiling yourself while you’re already on the way to Europe. The highlight of Lufthansa Business Class is the PrivateBed — a two metre-long sleeper seat, the longest bed in its class, with an infinite number of seating positions — which provides excellent sleeping comfort when it flattens at the touch of a button.

With Austrian Business Class, enjoy restaurant-style service and great Austrian wines while an on-board cook spoils guests with freshly prepared meals. At the airports enjoy the lounges of Lufthansa or our Star Alliance partners around the world.

For those looking to save dollars for shopping in Europe — travel in comfort with Lufthansa or Austrian Economy Class. Ergonomically-designed seats with a comfortable distance between them help the time on board to simply fly by. High quality meals are served according to the time and destination.

For on-board entertainment, individual viewing screens are available on the entire Austrian and Lufthansa Airbus fleet and are being progressively introduced on the Lufthansa Boeing fleet.
