Lufthansa has been named “Europe’s Leading Airline” for the fifth time in a row at the World Travel Awards on September 5 in Sardinia. Travel and tourism experts worldwide also honoured Lufthansa with the award of “Europe’s Leading Airline Lounge” for the lounges at Frankfurt Airport.
“It is an honour to recognise Lufthansa as Europe’s Leading Airline once again this year.

Jens Bischof, Member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Executive Board and Chief Commercial Officer of the Lufthansa Group, is delighted to receive the awards: “From this year onward our passengers can enjoy the full benefit from our multi-billion investments in quality, equipment and services. This enables us to continue to further expand our leading position in the group of international premium airlines”.
