Deutsche Lufthansa: we have now secured our position in all the key long haul markets

Deutsche Lufthansa AG CEO and chairman of the Executive Board Carsten Spohr stated (02-Nov-2016) the group is building on its position of strength to grow further through global partnerships and drive the consolidation within Europe via the Eurowings platform. Mr Spohr said, "The expansion of the Eurowings Group is progressing well, thanks to the planned wet-lease agreement with Airberlin and our planned full acquisition of Brussels Airlines. This would make Eurowings the number three in European in point-to-point traffic, less than two years since its launch”. Mr Spohr further noted, “Following our successful new joint-venture agreement with Air China, we have now secured our position in all the key long-haul markets for the long-term.
