Lufthansa Group

The Lufthansa Group is an aviation group with global operations and a total of more than 400 subsidiaries and associated companies.

The Lufthansa Group is divided into five business segments, which cover the areas of passenger transportation, airfreight and airline services: Passenger Airline Group, Logistics, MRO, Catering and IT Services. All of the business segments occupy a leading position in their sectors and in some cases are the global market leaders. Lufthansa Passenger Airlines, SWISS and Austrian Airlines constitute the core business segment of the Lufthansa Group and maintain a reputation in the market as quality airlines. The equity investments in Brussels Airlines and SunExpress round off the airline portfolio. This group of airlines offers passengers a global route network currently comprising 250 destinations in more than 100 countries. Via its transfer airports in Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Vienna and Brussels, the airline group applies a multi-hub strategy to give customers a wide range of options for convenient travel planning. The Logistics segment is also a market leader in international airfreight. As well as standard freight, its product portfolio covers express freight and special cargo. The MRO, Catering and IT Services segments complete the Lufthansa Group’s product portfolio, offering the full spectrum of services for the airlines within the Group as well as for external clients.

Today, the mission of The Lufthansa Group is: to increase company value; to expand the leading market position of our airlines and service companies by actively shaping the aviation industry; to continually improve customer satisfaction with product and service quality, technology and safety; and, to run an economically and ecologically sustainable business. Expanding their leading position as an independent group of European quality carriers is the objective which is vigorously pursued. To do so, the airlines put the key qualities of reliability, safety, punctuality and professional service at the core of their operations. The airline group companies are also well aware of their ecological responsibility and are pushing on with the reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by modernizing their fleets. In addition to continuous optimization within the individual airlines, the cooperation between them in the group is also being extended systematically. Synergies are being harnessed, primarily by realizing economies of scale. Joint purchasing initiatives for fuel, aircraft and handling services, the merger of freight activities, optimization of local traffic and joint sales are all generating sustainable cost and income synergies for the airline group. Recently, the airline group defended its leading role in Europe, again recording the greatest number of passengers and the highest revenue of any European airline. Currently, they estimate that more than 74 million people fly Lufthansa every year.
