Why TNMT?

Travel and Mobility have long been considered two separate industries. But the digital age and a user-centric understanding of the traveler journey have made both sectors closely intertwined.

One example: for the longest time, airlines have solely focused on taking care of the passenger while they are on board. But taking a plane from A to B is only one component of the entire door-to-door travel experience. Travelers need to get to and from the airport (mobility), need housing (hospitality), look for things to do at the destination (Tours & Activities), and wish for (digital) assistance along the entire trip.

To cater to the traveler of today, we need to renew our traditional understanding of industry sectors. The ecosystem of products and services along the entire traveler journey is what we have coined as “Travel and Mobility Tech”, in short: TNMT – hence the name of this website.

Who’s behind TNMT?

We are experts in the Travel and Mobility Tech sector. Why? Because we have skin in the game. TNMT is led by the Strategic Intelligence team of the Lufthansa Innovation Hub (LIH). All content contributors are current or former employees of the LIH. Every piece of content we produce will be narrated with true expertise.

The Lufthansa Innovation Hub is the leading digitalization unit of the Lufthansa Group and connects the world’s largest airline group with the Travel and Mobility Tech ecosystem worldwide. Our mission is to create and capture value beyond flying. To do this, we invest in startups, initiate partnerships with digital players, and most importantly, incubate new digital services and products ourselves.

In our work, we always follow the credo, “data beats opinion”. We want to act on facts rather than beliefs. That’s why exploring the Travel and Mobility Tech ecosystem is the crucial foundation on which all of the Lufthansa Innovation Hub’s activities are built on.
