Lufthansa, SWISS Expand Worldwide Network – Airways | Airlines


DALLASLufthansa (LH), the national airline of Germany, and SWISS (LX) have announced a significant expansion of their networks. The mainline carrier plans to launch two passenger routes to the United States and two dedicated air freight connections to Asia and the Middle East.
