German American Partnership Program

Lufthansa supports the GAPP program by offering special rates for students and teachers who wish to explore Germany.

• New for 2020, Lufthansa requires that a $100 per seat deposit be paid 95 days before departure by check only (school, personal, or cashiers). Once the deposit is paid, the group must utilize 90% of the seats deposited on, or the cancellation fee before tickets are paid in full is $100 per canceled seat.  The deposit is credited towards the final payment due.

• Passengers must stay a minimum of 14 days and no longer than 3 months.

• Date deviations are permitted for 30% of the group westbound only. The fare may be different than the group fare.

• Ticket payment is due 35 days before departure. Tickets issued upon payment received. Once paid for, tickets may be refunded less a $300.00 per person cancellation penalty. There is a $300.00 per person fee for date changes after tickets are issued, subject to availability.

•If 10 students travel one teacher's ticket base fare will be discounted by 25%, and if 20 passengers travel the 21st ticket will be free. These passengers must still pay taxes and surcharges.

• Final ticket payment is due 35 days before departure, and must be paid by check (school or personal).
