Lufthansa gets enough money on the capital market and only needs some of the state aid. In summer things should look better.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Lufthansa lost one million euros - every hour. Less than a year later, it is “only” ten million euros a day. CEO Carsten Spohr is satisfied with the 2020 balance sheet despite an operating loss of 5.5 billion euros and looks confidently to the future. There are two reasons for this: the return to the capital market was possible faster than feared, and the downsizing of the group with the airlines Lufthansa , Eurowings, Swiss, Austrian and Brussels is going more smoothly than expected. rescue package over nine billion

Maybe there isn't always a direct line from that big holiday spread you're used to sharing with friends and family and your local drive-thru window.

There was a lot of ado about the nine billion euros that the federal government put in a rescue package for Lufthansa in the early summer of last year. The populist slogans, according to which the big players are pampered by the state, while the travel agency and the corner pub break down, sound good, but do not adequately describe the reality. Since Austria, Belgium and Switzerland also participated in the aid program for the airlines in their countries, the German contribution shrank to less than seven billion euros. Lufthansa has so far only claimed 2.3 billion of this and has already repaid more than one billion euros.

The biggest chunk of federal aid consists of a deposit that initially pays four percent interest, and then increases year after year to 9.5 percent. This is nice business for the Federal Minister of Finance, who does not have to pay any interest even on the capital market. Lufthansa, on the other hand, has borrowed money on the market several times in the past few months, on average for two percent and therefore significantly cheaper than the state. These market conditions reflect the trust and expectations of the donors: Lufthansa is on track and is weathering the crisis well.

Smaller and more customer-oriented, The new Lufthansa will be more digital and cleaner. Of almost 800 aircraft, 150 will still be on the ground in 2023. The Executive Board is using the crisis to decommission the really big and dirty machines, so that, according to Lufthansa Spohr, in 2030, 50 percent less CO2 will be blown into the air than in 2019. The workforce is shrinking enormously: a fifth of the jobs are already gone, another 10,000 will follow - if possible by reducing working hours.

As a premium airline, Lufthansa made a living from business travelers, but not all of them will come back. This is one of the reasons why it makes sense to focus more on holidaymakers. Ultimately, Spohr's assessment is correct: people want to travel and also fly.

With vaccination certificate or negative test this should be possible from summer onwards.
