DB Long-Distance business unit
Dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic
DB Long-Distance ran a stable basic schedule from the beginning of January to the end of March 2021, which was about 85% of the regular schedule. This was based on the tried-and-tested schedule concept from November to mid-December 2020. The schedule was increased at times over the Easter holidays. With the falling incidence figures, the increasing utilization and the easing of official restrictions in national and international long-distance transport, the schedule increased to 95% of the regular schedule from May 10, 2021. Since the small schedule change on June 13, 2021, there have been no capacity restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
