Lufthansa Consulting has brought its German branch offices together under one roof at a new location. From now on, German and international customers can reach the management consultants at the Frankfurt Airport Center (FAC) directly opposite Terminal 1 at Frankfurt Airport.
For the first time, the entire staff of the former offices in Cologne and Frankfurt will be working side-by-side in shared premises at the FAC, which will further optimize communications and efficiency within the company’s organization. From Frankfurt, the consultants will be able to reach their projects located around the world more easily. The management consultancy has 80 employees, and in addition to its headquarters in Frankfurt maintains local consultancy offices in Moscow and, most recently, also in Rio de Janeiro. Further offices worldwide are planned in line with the company’s strategy.
For more than 25 years, Lufthansa Consulting, an independent subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, has provided specialist expertise in all areas of commercial aviation and offered its services to airlines, airports, aviation authorities and related industries in the sector. What sets the company apart from its competitors is, above all, the way in which it supports its customers and helps implement the solutions they have devised in projects. Since its founding, the company has successfully concluded more than 2,000 projects.
Lufthansa Consulting has steadily expanded and refined the range of services it offers. While the focus in the early years was on government-related, politically motivated projects, in the 1990s, the company established itself as the leading aviation consultancy in the fields of restructuring and privatization. In addition, since 2006, it has intensified its airport consultancy activities. Between 2008 and 2012, complex airline and airport projects accounted for a large part of the company’s business, particularly in Africa and in the Middle East.
Since 2012, Lufthansa Consulting has had a stronger regional focus. With their specific market knowledge and, in some areas, a local presence, the managers responsible for the defined core markets have achieved even greater proximity to customers. The company has also boosted its support services for the Lufthansa Group and steadily expanded its internal consultation business. Thus, it assists Lufthansa German Airlines and other Group companies in the execution of numerous complex projects in the Group-wide earnings improvement program SCORE and in the implementation of the resulting change processes.
“By locating our new, central headquarters at Frankfurt Airport we have created ideal conditions that will give us even faster access to our customers worldwide as well as to our internal clients at Lufthansa. Moreover, sharing office premises will also optimize our internal processes to the benefit of our customers,” says Dr. Andreas Jahnke, Managing Director of Lufthansa Consulting.
