Lufthansa CityLine: Ten years in the vanguard of environmental care


Renewed certification of environmental activities

The success of environmental management at Lufthansa CityLine has been endorsed for the third time in a row. In July, the regional airline obtained the renewed certification of the European EMAS eco-audit regulations. It has additionally been re-certified for compliance with the international ISO 14001 environmental standard. Both certificates apply to all three Lufthansa CityLine locations: Cologne, Munich and Hamburg. CityLine was the first airline to receive both certificates and is today one of only two, worldwide, to measure up to the requirements of the two environmental standards.

“Lufthansa CityLine attaches undiminished and paramount importance to protecting the environment in its business activities. We are proud of consistently upholding our commitment to the good of the planet, even in difficult times,” said Lufthansa CityLine Managing Director Christian Tillmans. Co-Managing Director Klaus Froese added: “As Europe’s biggest regional carrier, Lufthansa CityLine is committed to high quality standards. Environmental care is one of our prime corporate goals.”

A strict environmental regime has been firmly anchored at Lufthansa CityLine since 1999. Its established environmental management system encompasses all areas at the Company from aircraft maintenance and administration right through to flight operations. Ongoing improvement is the maxim through all company activities. Alongside regular renewal of the fleet with new, modern and more environmentally compatible aircraft, ongoing reduction of noise and emissions are primary corporate goals. In pursuance of those objectives, Lufthansa CityLine is taking delivery of 20 larger and more environmentfriendly regional jets of the Embraer E190/195 type from autumn 2009 on, while withdrawing from service 35 smaller and older aircraft.

Lufthansa CityLine publishes a yearly environmental report with all the details of its environmental activities. The latest issue is available for download at
