Lufthansa has unveiled a new interactive website that lets visitors scroll through the post-war history of Lufthansa.    The digitized timeline begins in 1951 and captures all of the key moments for Lufthansa over the last 7 decades.

Prior to this, Lufthansa would regularly publish ‘As Time Flies By’ to document the airline through the years but it was only available to Lufthansa ‘insiders’ and its not nearly as thorough as the interactive version found online.

What really makes this tool interesting is all of the video clips and photos that have been embedded into the timeline.   When it comes to aircraft, pictures and videos tell the story far better than any amount of word could ever say.     LH has done a great job bringing a lot of photos and videos out of the archives for this project!

You also have the option of searching for certain events based on subject and keywords so you can focus on the topics that interest you the most.

To access the time website, simply click here.   The website defaults to German but an English version is available by changing the language option in the settings menu.    For most, your computer will most likely auto-translate for you.
