The Lufthansa Group is an aviation group with global operations and a total of more than 400 subsidiaries and associated companies. It 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.
The airlines constitute the core business segment of the Lufthansa Group. Lufthansa Passenger Airlines, SWISS and Austrian Airlines enjoy an outstanding reputation in the market as quality airlines. The equity investments in Brussels Airlines and SunExpress round off the airline portfolio. In the reporting period, the airline group defended its leading role in Europe, again recording the greatest number of passengers and the highest revenue of any European airline. 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.
