Lufthansa welcomes fifth Airbus A320neo to fleet

Lufthansa has taken delivery of its latest A320neo from Airbus, with German flag-carrier now operating five of the planes. The new aircraft – with the registration D-AINE – was handed over on the Airbus business premises in Hamburg-Finkenwerder.

Certification for use of transport and an operating license have been issued, with the aircraft now at its home base in Frankfurt. In 2017, an additional ten A320neo aircraft are to be delivered to Lufthansa. Lufthansa is the first customer for this new generation Airbus A320neo.

These new aircraft have been in service since the beginning of 2016 on routes within Germany, as well as on inner-European routes such as Oslo, Stockholm and Barcelona. Through new technology engine design and the latest cabin layout with up to 180 seats, the A320neo is, in fact, approximately 20 percent cheaper to run per passenger.

The Lufthansa Group has a total of 116 neo-type aircraft on order, 45 of them in the larger A321neo model.
