Lufthansa group further refines safety structures

Mar 27 2015 17:48

Munich - In coordination with the Luftfahrtbundesamt (Germany’s aviation authority), the other German airlines and the German aviation industry association (Bundesverband der deutschen Luftverkehrswirtschaft), the airlines of the Lufthansa Group are to adopt a new cockpit occupancy procedure as a precautionary measure.

Under the new procedure, two authorised persons must be present in the cockpit at all times during a flight.  

The passenger airlines of the Lufthansa Group will adopt the new procedure as soon as possible, in due consultation with their national aviation authority.   

The Lufthansa Group is also expanding its safety structures. In addition to the safety pilots at each of its member airlines, the new position of group safety pilot has been created until further notice.

The new post will be assumed with immediate effect by captain Werner Maas, who will hold it in parallel with his current function as safety pilot of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.

Captain Maas will have overarching groupwide responsibility for examining and further refining all flight safety-relevant procedures in his new capacity, in which he reports directly to group CEO Carsten Spohr.
