Securing a strong financial profile is the core of our financial strategy for the Group. Sound financial circumstances provide the latitude for pursuing the Lufthansa Group’s operating and strategic development at all times. They are therefore a prerequisite not only for adapting flexibly to ever changing external conditions, but also for actively shaping this operating environment – independently of the current state of the market. Financial stability is also an important factor for the trust that thousands of customers place in us every day.
The ongoing European and to a certain extent global financial crisis shows clearly that a healthy financial constitution and financial reserves are indispensable. Our financial strategy already provides a distinct competitive advantage today. In view of the challenging conditions in our industry, this aspect will become even more important in future.
