Lufthansa is going beyond the business of flying people around the
world. The German airline group now wants to lend a helping hand to the
swelling ranks of travellers looking to work from anywhere in the world.
The new Lufthansa Global Spaces, developed and implemented by the
Lufthansa Innovation Hub (LIH), allows travellers to book hot desks,
private offices, or meeting rooms with matching accommodation in five
selected cities: Berlin, Munich, Barcelona, Singapore, and New York.
Selection and booking is done in cooperation with the reservation
platform Hubli, which has a worldwide network of 185,000 spaces.
The blurring of vacation and work is what's driving the airline group
to seek new opportunities in the travel industry, as traditional
business travel has declined significantly since the pandemic.
Lufthansa Global Spaces, therefore, is the "logical outcome" of the
growing bleisure trend, said Christine Wang, managing director of LIH.
"We want to provide travellers with the most seamless, enjoyable
travel experience possible, even beyond flying. Today, this also means
making it possible for customers to work from anywhere. The future of
work is flexible and, in many cases, not tied to a specific location –
and we want to help shape this future."
Lufthansa Global Spaces is available via the website www.lh-globalspaces.com. After a three-month test phase, the service is set to be rolled out worldwide.
