Lufthansa Regional is an operational entity for regional and feeder flights performed by two regional airlines owned by Lufthansa within its route network.[1] As part of Lufthansa's rebranding, the Lufthansa Regional brand name is gradually removed from the public eye since early 2018.

Overview[edit]

Lufthansa Regional was founded as the successor of similar Team Lufthansa, which consisted of predominantly independent airlines contracted by Lufthansa. As of January 2018, Lufthansa Regional consists of two members, Air Dolomiti and Lufthansa CityLine, which are both fully owned by Lufthansa.[1] They are based at Lufthansa's hubs at Frankfurt Airport and Munich Airport and carry 10.5 million passengers a year mostly to minor domestic and European destinations.

As part of Lufthansa's new corporate design introduced in early 2018, Lufthansa Regional aircraft operated by Lufthansa CityLine are also receiving the new livery, with the Lufthansa Regional titles being removed from the fuselage and replaced by Lufthansa.
