In 2015, the airlines of the Lufthansa Group transported 107.7 million people, a new passenger transportation record of the German flag carrier, an announcement said on Wednesday.

According to the announcement, the passengers carried in 2015 represented a 1.6 percent increase over the number for the previous year.

Lufthansa said that it carried out more than one million flights and achieved the highest ever seat load factor of 80.4 percent, which corresponded to an increase in capacity utilization of 0.3 percentage points compared to 2014.

“The Lufthansa Group has invested heavily in the improvement of its offers and services throughout the past few years”, Lufthansa said.

As part of this, 17 new aircraft were taken into service by the Lufthansa Group last year. The fleet would be amended by a further 251 jets over the next ten years.

Lufthansa added that the comfort of travel has been noticeably enhanced through cabin refurbishment in all classes, improvements in on-board services and the availability of the broadband Internet connection.

“With these improvements, the Group was able to markedly increase demand and to convince more customers than ever before to fly with one of its airlines.”
