The history of Lufthansa Airlines is eventful. It was the postwar era around 1950 that laid the foundation for airlines. Although the original Lufthansa had been in operation since 1926. With the purchase of the first Boeing B707 in 1960, Lufthansa entered the era of jet aircraft.
This expansion was followed by a decade of crisis, but also of progress. First, there were the oil shocks of 1973 and 1979, which caused jet fuel prices to skyrocket. Simultaneously, it ushered in a new understanding of resource management, driving the production of quieter, more fuel-efficient jet engines. The year 1986 marked the formation of the first two female pilots.
The Lufthansa Group is a global airline with operations all over the world. The Network Airlines, Eurowings and Aviation Services segments make up the business. The Logistics, MRO, Catering and Additional Businesses and Group Functions segments make up Aviation Services. Lufthansa AirPlus, Lufthansa Aviation Training and IT companies are among the former. All segments are at the top of the chart.

Do you know that Lufthansa Airline was the first to introduce in-flight internet back in 2004, which is pretty much the standard norm these days?
