About Lufthansa Airlines
Around 1920s, Germany witnessed a boom of several small aviation companies; however, only two survived the competition - Deutscher Aero Llyod and Junkers Luftverkehr. These two companies shook hands on January 6, 1926 to form 'Deutsche Luft Hansa AG'. It was in 1960 that Lufthansa Airlines made a transition from mechanically propelled aircraft to its first jet-propelled Boeing B707. This ensured expansion of route network and addition of numerous new flights to its schedule. Moreover, the low air fare of the airline helped it in attracting a large number of passengers on board. The increasing number of aircrafts helped Lufthansa Airlines flights to cover many destinations across the globe. In 1990s, Lufthansa Airlines set base in Berlin and went on to form the Star Alliance, which is an alliance between prominent airlines around the world. After its privatisation in 1997, the Lufthansa Airlines never looked back and went on to become one of the leading airlines in the aviation industry. Moving ahead, in 2012 Lufthansa Airlines became the first to own and fly the futuristic Boeing 747-8. With the next generation aircrafts in its fleet, the airline is providing cutting-edge seats to passengers, making air travel more convenient. Lufthansa Airlines provides a convenient online booking facility to passengers, making the purchase of air tickets simple.
