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 2019. 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 this year including Routes Americas, Routes Asia, Routes Europe and World Routes. 

The Network Airlines segment comprises Lufthansa German Airlines, SWISS and Austrian Airlines. The three airlines offer their customers a premium experience, with high-quality products and services. Customers rate them as the three best-quality airlines in western Europe, according to the Skytrax ranking.

The multi-hub strategy offers passengers a comprehensive route network along with the greatest possible flexibility for their journey. In the 2019 summer flight timetable, the route network comprised 270 destinations in 105 countries, served via the international hubs in Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich and Vienna. The Group flexibly controls its capacity via the four hubs and grows most strongly where quality and price are best.
