Lufthansa CityLine was founded as Ostfriesische Lufttaxi (OLT) in 1958 and became Ostfriesische Lufttransport (OLT) in 1970 in Emden. It was reorganised and renamed as DLT Luftverkehrsgesellschaft mbH on 1 October 1974 and began cooperation with Lufthansa in 1978 with short-range international routes. By 1988 all operations were on behalf of Lufthansa. In March 1992 DLT became a wholly owned subsidiary of Lufthansa and was renamed Lufthansa CityLine.

Lufthansa CityLine, as a wholly-owned Group company of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, is one of five strong partners in the Lufthansa Regional concept. Currently, 7 million passengers fly with Lufthansa CityLine every year. With its fleet of 65 modern and environmentally compatible medium- and short-range jets, CityLine serves all important airports across Europe with a total of up to 400 daily flights.

The Lufthansa Regional partners offer you all the advantages of a strong network. In addition to nonstop services between regional airports, the five partners offer you smooth connections – via the hubs in Frankfurt and Munich – to the world’s largest airline network, that of the Star Alliance.

Personnel structure

Lufthansa CityLine counts 2,444 employees, of whom 711 work in the cockpit, 866 in the cabin and 867 on the ground in the technical and administrative areas (as of December 31, 2008).
