German – Near and Middle East

Aviation Conference

Challenges having an effect on the air transport industry are numerous financial crisis:

2008 – kicked off by Goldman Sachs

2009 – „a lost year“- shift in demand affects yields

2010 – recovery (to former levels?)

... ongoing disturbance by „sub-crises“

January – storm in Germany and Europe

February – pilot‘s strike

March – heavy snowfall

April – volcanic ash

May – (?)

... further economic development in Europe

the Greek tragedy – value of the Euro (?)

... bilateral relations



subsidization / state aids

Challenges.... the regulatory field

European Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) vs. worldwide solution

Infrastructure constraints

Safety / Security

... in external factors

where will the fuel price go?

... in competition

by low-cost/no-frill carriers

on short haul routes in Germany and Europe

on intercontinental routes (Gulf carriers)

... to be encountered by strengthened local / regional competence!

... with particular focus on Near and Middle East markets

... Lufthansa‘s strong position in their variety of business units make the

company robust against external threats!
