General Terms and Conditions of Lübeck Air GmbH

(hereinafter: GTC) 

Lübeck Air sells and arranges flights between Lübeck Airport and the airports of Munich (MUC), Berne (BRN), Salzburg (SZG), Bergen (BGO), Keflavik (KEF), Sälen (SCR), Mahon (MAH), Bastia (BIA) and Olbia (OLB). These flights are operated by Private Wings Flugcharter GmbH and Marathon Airlines SA. In addition, the General Conditions of Carriage (GCC) of Marathon Airlines SA or Private Wings Flugcharter GmbH, which are an integral part of these GTC, apply.  


1. Booking 

Bookings can be made via the website (, by telephone (+49 (0)451/ 3171-9000) or at a travel agency. When booking, passengers must provide a contact address, telephone number and email address where they can be reached should it become necessary to obtain additional information after the booking has been made and until the flight as booked has been fully executed (according to, inter alia, Art. 11 para. 3 of Regulation 2111/05 (EC) and Art. 5 I c of Regulation 261/2004 (EC)). The booked flight is only valid for the passengers named at the time of booking and is not transferable unless otherwise agreed in these provisions. During the booking process, the first name and surname of the passenger(s) must be given, which must correspond to an official photo identification document (passport, identity card, children's travel document or similar). Name changes on the ticket can only be effected free of charge if it can be shown by way of official registry office documentation that such name changes have occurred in the time between booking and departure; in all other respects, the rebooking modalities mentioned under point 6 apply.  


2. Travel documents 

No paper tickets will be issued or sent. Upon booking, the passenger will receive a booking confirmation e-mail with booking number and e-ticket.  


3. Prices / right to adjust price 

The services and prices as confirmed with the booking apply. They shall only apply to carriage from the booked departure point to the destination for the passenger named on the e-ticket and the flight times specified. Payment is due upon booking. In some countries, taxes and other charges may be imposed directly on the passenger by authorities or airport operators. Such charges are therefore not included in the flight price and must be paid in addition by the passenger. Lübeck Air reserves the right to subsequently increase the airfare confirmed with the booking if more than four (4) months have elapsed between the conclusion of the contract and the agreed date of travel and if the circumstances leading to the increase had not occurred prior to the conclusion of the contract and were not foreseeable or avoidable by Lübeck Air. The increase is permissible if passenger-related airport or other charges, surcharges and/or fees are newly introduced or subsequently increased by at least 10 % and the passenger is informed thereof immediately and at the latest twenty-one (21) days before the date of flight. The passenger-related increase shall be passed on directly per passenger. In the event of price increases of more than 5 % of the total flight price after conclusion of the contract, the passenger is entitled to withdraw from the contract free of charge. The passenger must assert these rights vis-a-vis Lübeck Air immediately after notification of the price increase by Lübeck Air.


4. Payment 

All payments are made by a credit or debit card accepted by Lübeck Air. In the event of missing or untimely payment (default of payment), Lübeck Air is entitled to charge interest on arrears at a minimum to the statutory amount, as well as a handling fee to the amount of EUR 10,00 for asserting the damage caused by the default; Lübeck Air reserves the right to claim further damage caused by the default. Missing or untimely payment also includes the case that a credit card institute or a bank refuses to settle the claim resulting from the booking. In the event of a chargeback (i.e. if the amount collected by Lübeck Air from the bank or credit card company indicated by the customer is fully or partially charged back or otherwise claimed) a chargeback/damage lump sum of EUR 15,00 per booking shall be paid to Lübeck Air. In all the above-mentioned cases, the passenger shall have the right to prove that Lübeck Air has suffered no damage or damage to a lower amount. 


5. Rebooking 

In the event of rebooking (for a different passenger or a different flight date) the respectively applicable fare conditions must be observed. A rebooking is possible up to one hour before the agreed departure time. It is considered a rebooking if, at the passenger's request, changes are made regarding the flight date (within the current flight schedule) or regarding one (or several) passengers prior to the individual departures, provided that there are seats available and that the overall number of passengers does not change. 


6. Cancellation / no-show 

Cancellation of a booked flight or other confirmed service (e.g. animal transport, special reservation) must be notified to Lübeck Air by telephone on +49 (0)451 3171 9000 or in writing by email to, quoting the booking number, prior to commencement of the journey. The time of receipt of such cancellation by Lübeck Air decides whether it is considered to be ’prior to commencement’. Cancellation is not possible after the commencement of the journey. If a passenger cancels a booked flight or ends up not travelling (no-show, presentation of incomplete travel documents upon check-in, or similar), such passenger remains obliged to pay the price of the flight, unless Lübeck Air is responsible for the circumstances leading to the failure to travel or the cancellation. This also applies if the passenger has given prior notice that he/she will not travel. Passenger-related charges (such as fees or charges calculated per passenger) will be deducted; reimbursement will be made according to the applicable statutory provisions. In the abovementioned cases, the passenger is at liberty to prove that Lübeck Air has not incurred any loss, or that the loss is lower, as a result of not taking the flight. It is recommended that passengers take out a travel cancellation insurance.  


7. Changes / flight time changes 

It may occur that flight times have to be changed after booking. If possible, Lübeck Air will inform the passenger about the change. If a significant change is made which is not acceptable to the passenger and if it is not possible to rebook to a flight acceptable to the passenger, the passenger has the right to claim a refund of the airfare. Other passenger rights remain unaffected. Lübeck Air is - if necessary - entitled to change the aircraft or the airline operating the flight and to transfer carriage in whole or in part to third parties/agents, it being understood that Lübeck Air remains responsible for the booked carriage. In the event of a change to another airline, Lübeck Air will, irrespective of the reason for the change, immediately take all reasonable steps to ensure that the passenger is informed of the changes as soon as possible. In any case, the passenger will be informed when checking in, but at the latest at boarding (EC Regulation 2111/05) 


8. Liability 

The General Terms and Conditions and the General Conditions of Carriage of Marathon Airlines SA or Privat Wings Flugcharter GmbH, which form an integral part of these GTC, apply with regard to liability for the carriage of passengers, cargo and baggage.

Exclusion and limitation of Lübeck Air's liability shall apply mutatis mutandis to the benefit of its agents, servants, and representatives. The total amount to be paid by Lübeck Air and the named persons as compensation for damages, if applicable, may not exceed the maximum liability limits Lübeck Air is subject to. Any exclusion of liability under these provisions shall also apply to cases of passengers who fly free of charge or at a special fare which is not directly or indirectly available to the public.  


9. Data protection and data security
