I think it does, but I never used it like that.  Check the manpage.

It certainly can do what you want, if you leave it running and use it as a
shell and not as a single-command download tool. lftp can carry as many
transfers in parallel as needed, to as many sites as needed, and bounce from
one to another as needed.  Pause them, queue them, stop them, etc.

If you need to detach lftp from terminals and access it remotely, screen is
your friend.
