Lufthansa records 2009 loss
In a difficult financial year 2009 the Lufthansa Group generated revenue of EUR 22.3bn according to preliminary figures, around 10 per cent less than the previous year (EUR 24.8bn).
The Group achieved its target of earning an operating profit, reaching a figure of EUR 130m (previous year: EUR 1.3bn). The net loss for the period came to EUR 112m (previous year: net profit of EUR 542m). Given the net losses reported in the consolidated and individual financial statements of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, the Executive Board will propose not to distribute a dividend for the financial year 2009.
