About The Airline

Lufthansa German Airlines ranks upfront among the world's leading airlines. Lufthansa adheres firmly to economic and strategic criteria, and attaches overriding importance to quality and innovation, safety and reliability.

Deutsche Lufthansa AG, commonly known as Lufthansa, is the largest German airline and, when combined with its subsidiaries, also the largest airline in Europe both in terms of fleet size and passengers carried during 2017. The name of the company is derived from the German word, Luft 'air' and Hansa, the Hanseatic League. Lufthansa is one of the five founding members of Star Alliance, the world's largest airline alliance, formed in 1997.

Lufthansa is confirmed as attending Routes events next year including Routes Europe in Hannover and World Routes in Adelaide.

The Network Airlines segment comprises Lufthansa German Airlines, SWISS and Austrian Airlines. All the airlines offer their customers a premium product in order to maximise their realisation of the high income potential in their home markets. Customers rate them as the three best-quality airlines in Western Europe, according to the important Skytrax ranking. The airline group generates significant synergies by way of close coordination and increasingly centralised management of the airlines.

With their multi-hub strategy, the Network Airlines can offer their passengers a comprehensive route network combined with the highest level of travel flexibility. In the 2018 summer flight timetable, the route network comprised 9.232 weekly flights to 270 destinations in 85 countries served via the international hubs in Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich and Vienna.
