At Lufty Virtual, each pilot unlocks a new part of the fleet after reaching a specific milestone. Beginning with the ÔÇťlittleÔÇŁ CRJ900 and Q400, all the way up to the biggest passenger aircraft, the A380.

We are keen to award pilots that dedicate themselves to Lufty Virtual. ThatÔÇÖs why we offer a total of four awards to our most active pilots that come with a number of perks and privileges within the virtual airline.

Our Lufthansa Fleet

The Lufty Virtual Group holds multiple Virtual Airlines under its name, one of them is Brussels Airlines Virtual.
BRUVA was established in 2019 and joined the Lufty Virtual Group in February 2020. Brussels Airlines Virtual offers vital connections from Brussels to the whole African continent, without forgetting their extensive network which stretches all across Europe and North America.

Lufty Virtual is gratified to have an airline like Brussels Airlines Virtual in its group.

The Brussels Airlines Fleet

Lufthansa as one of the biggest airlines worldwide has an endless network of routes and destinations - and so do we. By closely mirroring the real-life operations of Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines, we are able to provide our pilots with every regular route that is served by either of the airlines. Additionally, we are continuously working on extending our route database with carefully selected codeshares that unlock new parts of the world for our pilots.

Join us to discover our extensive medium to long-haul route network out of our three main hubs Frankfurt, Munich, and Brussels. (Current as of the 8th of May 2022)


With our codeshare partners we offer even more routes to even more places in the world or offer you connection possibilities. (Current as of the 8th of May 2022)


WeÔÇÖre especially proud of our Star Alliance Virtual partner airlines. (Current as of the 8th of May 2022)

In total, we offer you a number of carefully selected airline partners to complement our own extensive route network. We are continuously working on expanding the number of partners.

Our route database is only available in the crew center when youÔÇÖre a pilot. But you can expect the routes to include nearly every route that Lufthansa and Brussels Airlines have + the codeshare routes.

Internal Events with Lufty Virtual.

Recently we held an internal event for pilots, an on-going series where pilots are invited to join us to fly routes they normally wouldnÔÇÖt. This was a success and we look forward to welcoming more pilots into our family to join us in these events!

Awards for Lufty Virtual Pilots

On this lovely evening here at the Lufty Virtual headquarters in Germany, we are happy to be able to announce the official introduction of awards to our program. Our virtual airline has been under reconstruction for quite some time now, and the addition of awards illustrates our progress. This adds to our website and the IFC Thread we introduced within the last week. We aim to keep the momentum going and strive to become a true 5-star virtual airline. If you want to be part of our great community of pilots and to be able to fly over 2000 routes realistically, apply here.

This is a really good idea, can we get those badges in the discord to use as our pfp ?

Yes, once you reach the required time/meet the requirements for one of the awards, you will be awarded the respective badge.

I assume they are based on the miles&more program arenÔÇÖt they?

Yes, the first three do. They are based upon two different versions of the Miles & More Program though, to ensure the best coverage.

The Distinguished Service Award is a custom award, invented by us to reward the most helpful members of our virtual airline, and can thus not be achieved by reaching x amount of hours.
