Special Meet-Up with Brussels Airlines: How can the LHG carriers help shape the future of Africa

Congressional A/B

LHG has entered into a Group-wide global project for the definition of a consolidated strategic approach for Africa, coordinated with all Lufthansa Group companies under the sponsorship of Christina Foerster, CEO of Brussels Airlines. This exercise goes far beyond the standard economics, it also requires a deep introspection on what LHG and Africa represent to one another.

Join Brussels Airlines and Lufthansa Group in answering a key question about LHG’s strategic vision for its presence in Africa through the process of design thinking. This fun, interactive method of problem solving will challenge your thinking. The final results of the workshop will be provided to Lufthansa Group leadership.
