To help with medical emergencies on board even more effectively and faster,

Lufthansa is encouraging doctors, in particular, to participate in the frequent
flyer programme Miles & More. From 1st November, when registering, doctors can
provide details of their specific field of medicine - anaesthetist, gynaecologist,
general practitioner, internal specialist/ cardiologist, neurologist/psychiatrist or
others. After Lufthansa’s Medical Service has checked the registration, including
the licence to practice medicine, the participating doctors will receive an one-off
welcome bonus of 5,000 miles when embarking on their first Lufthansa flight.
Additional advantages are the opportunity to participate in flight travel medical
events and conventions, useful information about the first-aid equipment of the
Lufthansa fleet, as well as first aid courses in small groups.

“In cooperation with the medical profession, we want to improve the medical
assistance for our passengers still further. It is our objective, as the airline one
can trust, that our customers always feel in good hands on board”, explained Thierry
Antinori, Executive Vice President Marketing and Sales at Lufthansa German Airlines.
Anyone who, as a doctor, indicates his Miles & More number when reserving a flight,
will appear together with the specific field of medicine on the crew’s passenger
list. Thus, in an emergency the purser can discreetly approach the doctor and ask
him for help. The announcement “Is there a doctor on board?” and the possible unrest
which it can cause can thus be avoided and help can be given more quickly.
Experience shows that in more than 80 percent of cases a doctor is to be found among
the passengers. Information and registration online: www.lufthansa.com > Information
