Lufthansa, which is increasingly seeing itself as a purveyor of intermodal travel, is using diverse modes of transport to get the customer from embarkation point to the final destination.

Lufthansa’s new online Journey Planner is designed to give customers a tool that will detail every step of their journey from their front doors to their hotel lobbies.

The tool charts the full range of transportation options. Alongside the Lufthansa flight schedules, users of the tool will find all other transport options to and from the airport, whether it is by train, car, ferry, subway or on foot.

For example, passengers traveling from Cologne Cathedral to New York’s Central Park, can use the Journey Planner to find all the details on how to get from A to Z. The new tool offers information on the timetables of more than 600 urban or public transport systems as well as those published by rail and shipping companies.
