Uwe Wriedt, General Manager, UAE, and Director for the Gulf and Pakistan, said, "Today, Lufthansa is an international corporation with its roots firmly fixed in Germany. Around 60,000 of the 90,000 people employed by Lufthansa work in Germany, and 95 in the UAE.”

The first flight into the UAE was in the year 1976. The traffic figures from Abu Dhabi have also grown tremendously in the past years. Recently Lufthansa has started its flights to Bahrain as well. “The German Carrier is therefore proud to announce that it now operates to all Middle Eastern countries in the region except Iraq and Syria,” Wriedt said.

He further stated, "A high level of innovation, quality, safety and internationally recognised technical expertise are the values for which Lufthansa is today known around the world.
