Key figures

The Lufthansa Group generated revenue of 16.8 billion euros in the fiscal year 2021, around 24 percent more than in the previous year (previous year: 13.6 billion euros). An increase in passengers, the transformation and restructuring of the company, and the associated cost reductions contributed to a significant improvement in earnings. The company returned to profit in the third quarter due to strong summer travel months. For the full year, the operating loss was significantly reduced, despite the third and fourth pandemic wave and the resulting travel restrictions.
