Flying with Lufthansa

Lufthansa is a German airline that was founded by the country's government in 1926. The airline has since been privatised and is now publicly traded. It maintains hubs at Frankfurt Airport and Munich Airport, plus has its headquarters located in Cologne, Germany. Over 250 Airbus and Boeing aircraft make up the entire Lufthansa fleet. The largest number of these aircraft are Airbus A320s. The airline flies to more than 200 destinations worldwide with some of the most popular Lufthansa flights those to London, Barcelona and Dusseldorf.

Lufthansa was one of Star Alliance's founding members in 1997. In addition to the other Star Alliance members, Lufthansa has several airlines with which it has codeshares. These are Air Malta, BMI regional, Germanwings, Luxair, SpiceJet and TAM Airlines. It also has several subsidiaries including Eurowings and Austrian Airlines. Lufthansa is Germany's biggest airline, but when including subsidiaries, it becomes Europe's largest airline.
