Lufthansa extends order of Airbus A320neo and A320ceo

Lufthansa A320neoLufthansa Group used the option in its contract for Airbus A320neo to order another six airplanes. The decision was taken by the company’s supervisory board in early May 2018.

“Thus, the total order book of Lufthansa Group for A320neo aircraft, at the moment, is 122 aircraft (77 A320neo and 45 A321neo)”, noted Airbus.

The latest agreement brings Lufthansa Group’s total order for the A320neo to 122, consisting of 77 A320neos and 45 A321neos. In addition, the company placed an order for three more A320ceo aircraft, bringing the total order portfolio to Lufthansa Group’s orders for A320ceo aircraft to 273 aircraft.

“Benefiting from the Airbus commonality and the A320 family’s efficiency and environmental credentials such as reduced noise, lower fuel-burn and emissions, we are pleased the airline has decided to come back for more”, said the CEO of Airbus, Eric Schulz.

The Airbus A320neo family is a development of the A320 family of narrow-body airliners, launched on 1 December 2010 by Airbus. They are essentially a re-engine; neo stands for new engine option, with a choice of CFM International LEAP-1A or Pratt & Whitney PW1000G engines.
