As the number one in Europe, Lufthansa is an attractive partner for other market leaders. By making use of a strong network like the Star Alliance, Lufthansa can exploit its market opportunities and options for growth in a better way.
Powerful alliances to open up new markets
Star Alliance is the leading airline grouping in the world, with more than 21,000 flights a day to 1,290 airports in 189 countries. And yet we are always on the lookout for ways of broadening the scope of collaboration and improving services for our customers even further. This is particularly promising when representatives of two important economic areas such as Japan and Europe come together. The largest Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Lufthansa have agreed on a strategic joint venture called Japan+ for routes between Japan and Europe. This is a milestone which will make travelling in the two regions much easier in future. The cooperation agreement provides for a coordination of the flight plans and sales activities of ANA and Lufthansa. For passengers this means improved transfer connections and connecting flights.
