Lufthansa CEO on its turnaround, India and Air India
German airline Lufthansa has been impacted by Covid before and more than most global carriers. It grounded planes, fired thousands of employees and lost billions. Last week, Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr said the airline “is back” as it swung from record losses in 2020 to a resounding profit in 2022.
As it still grapples with challenges and pushes through its expansion plans-buying aircraft, revamping product and hiring staff- Asia and India assume massive importance for the European carrier.
In an exclusive chat, Spohr talks to host Anirban Chowdhury about the airline’s current problems and opportunities; why the airline will be leaner than before; the importance of China; why he loves India and his plans for the market. He also talks about why the world and Lufthansa want a new Air India. Credits: Channels Television, WION, DW News, euronews and CNBC International TV.
