FRANKFURT, GERMANY — In a statement on Wednesday, a spokesperson for Lufthansa announced that the airline suspended all flights due to technical issues with its computer systems.

The company is currently conducting an urgent investigation into the matter. It remains unclear whether Lufthansa planes that were already en route have been directed to land.

Lufthansa is the parent company of several airlines, including its namesake brand, with a combined fleet of around 700 aircraft. Lufthansa is currently the largest airline in Europe. While the cause of the IT issues that have led to the grounding of all Lufthansa flights is still being investigated, a spokesperson for the company has stated that it is too early to determine if they are related to the recent cyberattack that targeted SAS Scandinavian.
