Premium German airline –Lufthansa has gained immense popularity for providing some striking services to its clientele- both inflight and on the ground. Continuing their trend, the bespoke airlines recently introduced a service for first-class customers in transit that is bound to make you hop on their aircraft for kicks alone, if not for work. The new facility lets (first-class) flyers in transit drive around their layover destination for 3 hours in a luxurious Porsche! Yes, you heard that right!
The new service rightly termed as “the Porsche – First Class Excitement” can be availed by Hon circle members or First Class flyers. Lufthansa customers can book themselves a classic Porsche 911 or Panamera for two time hauls: The first is a 3-hour rental including 150km, fuel, and insurance, while the second caters to a longer timeframe of the 24-hour rental including 200km and insurance. While the 3-hour drive will cost you €99.10 ($105 USD), the day-long booking is priced for a total of €303.77 ($322 USD). This is still a really good deal for cutting out the long wait in transit and driving around town in a luxury car like the Porsche!
Once you zero in on the model of choice, you can book your Porsche directly by going onto the airline’s webpage or you can opt for a telephonic booking by dialing the Avis (the brand’s cooperation partner) booking hotline. Moreover, if you aren’t a navigation expert, worry not! The airline has a map of several routes chalked out for you, ensuring that your Porsche maneuver is nothing but smooth! For a layover that lets you explore the German countryside in a luxe Porsche, Lufthansa flyers are surely a bunch of happy fellas!
