  6. 6. 1. 2. Lufthansa – Chronicle6
  7. 7. 2. 2. Lufthansa – Chronicle 1926: Lufthansa owes its origins to "Deutsche Luft Hansa Aktiengesellschaft" (renamed "Lufthansa" in 1933), which is formed from a merger between "Deutsche Aero Lloyd" (DAL) and "Junkers Luftverkehr" on January 6. The new airline inherits its crane logo, designed by "Deutsche Luft-Reederei" in 1919, from DAL, the blue-and-yellow house colours from Junkers. It commences scheduled flights on April 6 with a fleet of 162 aircraft, of 18 different types. A flying expedition to China is the event of the year. 1927- Following its acquisition of shares in 1926 in the German-Russian "Dereluft" 1930: airline, which was founded in 1921, Lufthansa is influential in the founding of the Spanish Iberia, the Brazilian "Syndicato Condor" and the Chinese "Eurasia" airlines.7
  8. 8. 2. 2. Lufthansa – Chronicle 1934: Lufthansa opens the first trans-oceanic, scheduled airmail service across the South Atlantic. Between 1936 and 1938, it also experiments with scheduled air services across the North Atlantic. 1939- After substantial expansion of the route network in 1939 including flights to 1945: Bangkok and Santiago de Chile wartime air services, except for a few European countries, are suspended. All flights are discontinued in 1945 and Lufthansa goes into receivership and is finally wound up and struck from the Berlin commercial register in 1965. 1951- The Federal Transport Minister sets up a working committee in 1951 to prepare 1955: for the resumption of air traffic in postwar Germany and entrusts the job of implementation to "Büro Bongers", the office headed by Hans M. Bongers, the traffic chief of the old Lufthansa in Cologne. A new company to run air services and named "Aktiengesellschaft für Luftverkehrsbedarf" (Luftag) is founded in Cologne on January 6, 1953. The company changes its name to the more traditional "Deutsche Lufthansa Aktiengesellschaft" in 1954, and resumes8 scheduled flights on April 1, 1955.
  9. 9. 2. “In 1926, during the pioneer era of air transport, Aero Lloyd and Junkers Luftverkehr AG joined together in Berlin to form the German Lufthansa. It quickly made progress toward its’ goal of creating a worldwide air network. In 1930 it opened a route to the Far East. The Eurasia Aviation Corporation was founded in China. It became the first airline in the world to establish an airmail service over the south Atlantic in 1934. Later the use of seaplanes to cross the north Atlantic causes much excitement. In 1938 the future of intercontinental air traffic began to take form as Lufthansa flew non-stop from Berlin to New York with a four motor Focke Wulf aircraft. A year later it became Europe’s leading airline with a fleet of 150 aircraft. Lufthansa was ordered to shut down operations by the Allies at the end of the Second World War in 1945.“9
  10. 10. 2. 2. Lufthansa – Chronicle 1960: Lufthansa enters the jet age, initially on long-haul routes, with the arrival in the fleet of the Boeing 707. The last of the propeller-driven aircraft, a Vickers Viscount, is retired in 1971. 1964- Conversion to jet aircraft continues with the start of flights on medium-haul 1976: routes with the Boeing 727 and, on short-haul, with the Boeing 737, the city jet largely fathered by Lufthansa. The wide-body era begins at Lufthansa with the delivery of its first Boeing 747 jumbo jet in 1970, later to be joined by the McDonnell-Douglas DC10 and the A300, the first of the jets from the newly founded European aircraftmaker. 1990: Lufthansa resumes flights to Berlin 45 years after the end of World War Two following Germanys reunification. 1992- Lufthansa masters its worst-ever economic crisis with a sweeping rehabilitation 1997: programme. The airline, largely owned by the state, is privatised step by step.10 Its MRO, cargo and IT businesses are spun off as independent companies.
  11. 11. 2. 2. Lufthansa – Chronicle 1997: Lufthansa, Air Canada, SAS, Thai Airways und United Airlines create the "Star Alliance", the worlds first multilateral airline grouping, later to be joined by other carriers. 1997- The Lufthansa aviation group is equipping itself for the new millennium and is 2001: focusing particularly on innovation and quality. As a forward-looking airline, Lufthansa is ordering the most advanced passenger aircraft, such as the Airbus A340-600 and the superjumbo, twin-deck A380. Since Lufthansa has continued to fly high, even in times of crisis. It has reorganised its 2001 regional services as part of the "Future European Operations" initiative, while new partners are expanding the Star Alliances global network. Lufthansa has completely revamped its Business Class, and in future passengers will be able to use "FlyNet", which provides broadband Internet access.11
