Key Highlights
Eurowings strengthened the position of Lufthansa Group in the European market

The company started Eurowings airlines to cater to price-sensitive and service-oriented customers in the growing European market. The brand has helped the company to enhance its point-to-point route connections in Europe. This has allowed the company to strengthen its presence in European countries, particularly in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.

The company posted an increase in available seat miles and revenue passenger miles

Lufthansa Group’s available seat miles stood at 178.1 billion in 2016, in comparison to 170.2 billion in 2015, indicating a growth rate of 4.6%. The increase was primarily due to the deployment of larger aircraft, which led to growth in aircraft capacity. Capacity growth was particularly strong in the American, European and Asian regions.

Lufthansa acquired Brussel Airlines

In December 2016, Deutsche Lufthansa acquired 55% of the shares in SN Airholding, the parent company of Brussels Airlines. The transaction was completed in early January 2017. The acquisition of Brussels Airlines and a lease agreement with Air Berlin significantly strengthened Eurowings’ position as a leading point-to-point airline in the German market. It also captured third position in the European market.
