About Lufthansa Consulting Europe


Europe is an increasingly challenging market for the aviation industry. A growing number of constraints such as additional taxes, a rising number of night curfews, changing customer behavior or growing competition mean that aviation businesses have to continuously update their strategy and efficiency to ensure sustainability. To support you in dealing with upcoming challenges, we keep track of the latest industry developments and continuously develop our service portfolio.

Lufthansa Consulting enjoys a strong market presence in our European home region and we have a long-standing track record of successfully completed project assignments. Although our focus is on the aviation industry - airport, airlines, investors and service providers are our key clients - we also serve adjacent industries such as tourism, logistics and other modes of transportation in elaborating customized solutions.
