Embracing The Entrepreneurial Spirit

Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and freedom, employees are able to pursue their entrepreneurial passion to the fullest. The aspiration to build and spin-off new ventures is built into the DNA of the Lufthansa Innovation Hub, enabling their ambitious employees to benefit from the financial and operational upside of being part of the Lufthansa Group, without having to be restricted by tedious corporate processes and stakeholder management.

Pioneering The Future Of Travel And Mobility

This is a team at the forefront of the most sought-after industry at its most exciting time, exploring new relevant opportunities in the industry and converting them into business opportunities. Governed by five main areas: Discover, Build, Partner, Invest and Transform,  Lufthansa Innovation Hub seeks out developments in the travel and mobility industry, invests and partners up with startups, and builds its own ventures. With Transform, their latest capability, the team facilitates Lufthansa Group’s assets and relays the expertise in Berlin back to the HQ in Frankfurt.

Valuing Every Voice

The voice of every employee is valued, and job titles are just that, a name. With its flat hierarchy, the opinion of every team member is of equal importance. Lufthansa Innovation Hub has fostered an environment where all employees are able to articulate their ideas and give valuable input into projects, from the moment you enter the company. The trust and collaboration running through Lufthansa Innovation Hub trickles down to interns as well, they are able to shape tasks and take on full responsibilities of projects, something unheard of in most internship positions.

Welcoming Everyone

Effort and time is put in to make everyone feel at home and part of the team, be it through 1-on-1 sessions with each team member in the onboarding process, a personal mentor or knowledge sharing sessions with other employees. Mornings at the office begin with breakfast in the kitchen over some chit-chat and the team cooks together at mid-day, enjoying lunch on the terrace with each other. Birthdays are a big thing at Lufthansa Innovation Hub, there’s cake, singing, and a crown involved.
