Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 12 March 2009

The Supervisory Board of the Lufthansa Group has  approved the order for 30 short-haul aircraft.

The Bombardier CSeries aircraft will be used by Lufthansas subsidiary, Swiss International Air Lines, and will be ready for the fleet as of 2014.

The new aircraft will replace the existing Avro RJ100 short-haul aircraft.

The investment represents the next step in the modernization of the fleet at Swiss International Air Lines.

The CSeries aircraft have approximately 115 seats. The new engine technology and lightweight materials help to significantly reduce fuel consumption.

The CSeries should consequently allow SWISS to reduce its current fuel consumption with the Avro fleet by well over a quarter.
