Lufthansa On A Special Mission to Fly Germans Out of Israel

In a recent development of the crisis of foreigners stuck in Israel, Lufthansa, the German airline, has announced a series of special flights to bring German citizens still in Israel back to Germany. This decision comes amidst an escalating conflict in the region.

The Plan

Lufthansa plans to carry out these special flights on Thursday and Friday. The final details are currently being worked out. German citizens registered on the so-called ELEFAND crisis prevention list will be informed about the details on Thursday.


The Execution

Overall, Lufthansa is set to carry out four flights on both Thursday and Friday. This program is the result of negotiations between German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr.


The Context

This news comes as Israeli air strikes on Gaza have razed entire districts and filled morgues with dead Palestinians. This has triggered some of the worst blood-letting in 75 years of conflict. In response to the uncertain security situation, Lufthansa had previously suspended regular flights to and from Tel Aviv up to and including Saturday.



The safety of citizens abroad is a top priority for any nation. In times of conflict and uncertainty, it becomes even more critical. This move by Lufthansa is a testament to their commitment to ensuring the safe return of German citizens from Israel. It also highlights the role that airlines can play in crisis management and citizen repatriation.
