Lufthansa Consulting opens branch office in Djibouti

Posted 16 March 2015 · Add Comment

Lufthansa Consulting is establishing a regional office in the Republic of Djibouti to further develop its market engagement in Africa.

The German consulting firm said the opening of a local entity in the region is an extension of the company’s successful performance on the African continent and underlines the close-to-clients commitment of the aviation consultancy.
Lufthansa Consulting’s Associate Partner Bruno Boucher will head the new branch office on site in the Djibouti Free Zone as General Manager, in addition to his existing regional responsibility for Central, West and North Africa.
Djibouti is emerging as one of the most important gateways to the African continent. Strategically situated at the crossroads of the trade routes between East and West, of the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, the free zone offers a distinguished location for providing consultancy services in East Africa as well as in other major regional markets, Lufthansa said.
The company said that the excellent road, air and sea network connections provide the Djibouti Free Zone with an “enviable transport infrastructure” which makes Lufthansa Consulting easily accessible for local and regional clients and partners. The company also plans the mid-term setup of local resources to create a best possible mixture of local know-how and cultural understanding combined with international industry best practice.
“Overall, Africa remains one of the most significant markets for the management consultancy as it is full of aviation business opportunities with a focus on airline start-ups as well as turnarounds, privatization projects and airport management optimization,” said Boucher “Increasingly, Lufthansa Consulting provides its proven expertise also to related industries such as logistics and railway companies or ports. Moving to Djibouti will greatly improve the communication quality with our customers and partners in the region.
