Lufthansa does not expect air travel demand to return to pre-crisis levels until 2024, according to Carsten Spohr, CEO of Lufthansa Group, in a quarterly earnings report. He said that, especially for long-haul routes, “there will be no quick recovery.”  The pandemic, according to the carrier, led to an 80% drop in revenue in the second quarter. In the same period, Lufthansa Group airlines carried 1.7 million passengers, 96% fewer than in the previous year. Despite some improvement in leisure business, said Spohr, “we will not be spared a far-reaching restructuring of our business.” Looking ahead, Spohr said the entire aviation industry must adapt to a new normal. He said the pandemic offers the industry a unique opportunity to recalibrate, to question the status quo and, instead of striving for growth at any price, “to create value in a sustainable and responsible way.”
