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.

  • Lufthansa Consulting awarded “Best of Consulting” by WirtschaftsWoche

    Lufthansa Consulting has been awarded the coveted consultancy prize "Best of Consulting 2018" by the German weekly business news magazine WirtschaftsWoche.

    Managing Director Dr. Andreas Jahnke and Project Manager Karel Sucha as well as their client Dr. Josef Adam from Czech Airlines proudly accepted the award for first place in the category "Competitive Strategy" at the award ceremony in Düsseldorf.

    The aviation consultants took part in the WirtschaftsWoche competition for the first time and achieved their goal straight away. The award went to a successfully completed project with Czech Airlines (CSA), the national airline of the Czech Republic.

    The airline found itself in a difficult competitive environment due to the entry of numerous low-cost carriers into its core market Prague and therefore had to change its market positioning.

    Lufthansa Consulting and CSA jointly developed an ancillary revenue strategy and a branded fares concept. They devised the airline’s revenue management and pricing strategy with a revision of the product offer and its re-bundling to serve customer segment requirements. This branded fares concept provides a new customer-centric offer with a-la-carte product elements in order to raise Czech Airlines’ price attractiveness for its passengers and at the same time allows the exploitation of ancillary revenues.

    The implementation of the overall project resulted in a significant increase in ancillary revenues and thus in a positive operating profit for Czech Airlines.

    This pleasing outcome not only delighted Lufthansa Consulting and its client but also convinced the WirtschaftsWoche jury.

    This year Lufthansa Consulting is celebrating its founding as a limited company 30 years ago. All in all, the aviation consultancy has now been providing expertise and services to clients for more than 40 years starting in 1976 as a department of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.

    Lufthansa Consulting operates worldwide, providing specialist expertise in all areas of commercial aviation and offering a range of custom-made services to airlines, airports, aviation authorities as well as to related industries and institutions. The German management consultancy currently employs 100 full-time and freelance staff, and in addition to the headquarters in Frankfurt has an office in Moscow and Rio de Janeiro. In-house consulting work for the Lufthansa Group companies has gained in importance over the past five years.

This hallmark has paid off: more than 3.000 projects were successfully concluded over the past 30 years. Lufthansa Consulting has even more reason to celebrate. This year, the aviation consultancy was awarded as one of Germany’s leading consultancies from an esteemed German business magazine for the third time in a row.
