Lufthansa has heavily reduced its price for premium economy tickets from London to Shanghai. If you start your trip from the British capital, you’d be able to get these flights for only £504 (~€585) – a great price. While the availability is not daily, you can find these cheap prices all throughout the year – not on weekends though.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
From London-Heathrow, you would fly to Munich in economy class on an Airbus narrow-body, before then continuing to Shanghai on an Airbus A350. On your flight, you will be served a meal, beverages, and get to read some eJournals for free which you can download before the flight. You’ll also be permitted to bring 2 checked bags of 23 kg, as well as one carry-on weighing up to 8 kg.

Information & Tips for Shanghai
Shanghai is the most important financial and commercial center of China. But not only business travelers are welcome here. Also, regular tourists can get there money’s worth. And this is great because the city is connected to many major airports and therfor we’ll often present you with good deals for flights to Shanghai.
Best Time to Visit
Since Shanghai is located in a subtropical climate zone, spring and autumn are the best travel times thanks to moderate temperatures and a few rainy days. April, May, September, and October are particularly suitable for a visit to the Chinese city thanks to the low rainfall and humidity.
From the airport to the city
Shanghai Pudong Airport is located 40km east of the city center. Probably the fastest and most exciting method is the Maglev. The magnetic levitation train takes only 7 minutes, and with costs of around 5€ it is also a rather inexpensive (and of course faster!) alternative to a taxi, which would cost about 20€.
