  2. 2.           Largest airline in Europe with respect to both overall passengers carried and fleet size and Germany’s flag carrier. Was a state-run enterprise until 1994; most of Lufthansa’s shares are currently owned by private shareholders (88.52%), as well as MGL Gesellschaft für Luftverkehrswerte (10.05%), Deutsche Postbank (1.03%), and Deutsche Bank (0.4%). The company’s name is taken from Luft (the German word for air) and Hansa (a Latin word referencing the Hanseatic League). Operates services to 18 domestic destinations and 197 global destinations in 78 different countries across Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe, with a fleet of over 280 aircraft. Along with its partners, it services an estimated 500 destinations; with more than 620 aircraft, it has one of the biggest passenger airline fleets in the world when combined with its subsidiary airlines. Its registered office and company headquarters are in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The primary operations base, called Lufthansa Aviation Center (LAC) is located at Lufthansa’s main traffic hub at Frankfurt Airport, where most Lufthansa pilots, ground staff, and flight attendants are based. Founding member of Star Alliance, the world’s biggest airline alliance, founded in 1997. Lufthansa Group carried more than 103 million passengers in 2012. Its airline slogan is Nonstop you.
  3. 3.        Lufthansa’s company headquarters are located in Cologne (Köln), Germany. In 1971, Lawrence Fellows of The New York Times described the then-new headquarters building that Lufthansa took up as “gleaming”. Despite a terrorist attack on the Lufthansa headquarters in 1986, no people were injured during that bombing. The designers placed the first stone to the new Lufthansa headquarters in Deutz, Cologne in 2006; Lufthansa planned to move 800 employees, which included the company’s economics department, to the new building in 2007. A number of Lufthansa departments are not located in the headquarters; they are instead located in the Lufthansa Aviation Center on the grounds of Frankfurt Airport. These departments comprise Corporate Communications, Investor Relations, and Media Relations. Early in 2013, Lufthansa disclosed plans to relocate its main office from Cologne to Frankfurt by 2017.

  5. 5.      Lufthansa’s logo, an encircled stylized crane in flight, was created in 1918 by Otto Firle; it was part of the livery of the first German airline, Deutsche Luft-Reederei (shortened to DLR), which started service on February 5, 1919. Deutsche Luft Hansa took this icon in 1926; Lufthansa also did so in 1954. F.A. Fischer von Puturzyn is believed to be the original designer of the name Lufthansa. He published a book in 1925 titled Luft-Hansa, which observed the choices available to aviation policymakers at the time. Luft Hansa was the name given to the new airline that was result of the merger of Junkers’ airline (Luftverkehr AG) and Deutscher Aero Lloyd.
