As part of its ongoing consolidation and modernization efforts, the Lufthansa Group has officially commenced construction on a cutting-edge conference and visitor center adjacent to its Lufthansa Aviation Center (LAC) at Frankfurt Airport. This new facility is set to open in spring 2026, coinciding with Lufthansa's centenary celebrations.

The decision to build a new center comes in response to evolving workplace dynamics accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Traditional office spaces are giving way to more flexible, collaborative environments, as evidenced by Lufthansa's recent transformation of 3,200 square meters at the LAC into multifunctional 'collaboration hubs.'

The new conference and visitor center promises to be a hub for innovation and partnership, not only for Lufthansa's staff but also for customers and business partners. It will also serve as a key venue for showcasing Lufthansa’s heritage, featuring permanent exhibits of two iconic aircraft: the Junkers Ju 52 and the Lockheed L-1649 Super Star. These exhibits will be visible from outside the center, thanks to its expansive glass facade.

Designed by Frankfurt-based architects AS+P Albert Speer + Partner, the building draws inspiration from aircraft hangar architecture and spans approximately 3,800 square meters. This space will not only host conferences and events for over 1,000 guests but will also feature a public gallery displaying previously inaccessible artifacts from Lufthansa's history.

Sustainability is a core component of the new center's design, which includes a green roof, a photovoltaic system, and geothermal heat pumps. These features underline Lufthansa's commitment to environmental stewardship and its ambition to lead by example in the aviation industry.

This development is expected to enhance Lufthansa's operational efficiency by centralizing activities and reducing office space by around 60,000 square meters across its Frankfurt operations by the end of this year. The new center is not just a physical space but a symbol of Lufthansa’s forward-looking strategy in the face of global changes in both aviation and workplace environments.
