Consequences of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic on Lufthansa

The collapse in demand for air travel due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has led to an 80 percent drop in revenue for the Lufthansa, the group has revealed in its second-quarter results.

Revenue was down to 1.9 billion euros in 2020, down from 9.6 billion euros for the same period of 2019, with most of the revenue - 1.5 billion euros was generated by Lufthansa Cargo and Lufthansa Technik.

The number of employees has already been reduced by 8,300, with more on the way,  as the firm confirmed redundancies are no longer ruled out in Germany as the group tried to stem its losses and head to a future in post-COVID world. 

The Lufthansa Group Adjusted EBIT in the quarter under review amounted to minus 1.7 billion euros (previous year: 754 million euros), despite extensive cost reductions. Operating expenses were reduced by 59 percent, primarily through the introduction of short-time working for large parts of the workforce and the cancellation of non-essential expenditures. However, these measures were only partially able to compensate for the decline in sales. The consolidated net income of Lufthansa Group for the months April to June amounted to minus 1.5 billion euros (previous year: 226 million euros).

The logistics division benefited from stable demand. The loss of cargo capacity in passenger aircraft ("bellies") led to a significant increase in yields. Lufthansa Cargo's Adjusted EBIT thus rose to 299 million euros (previous year: minus 9 million euros).
