Lufthansa Group has firmed up a previous Supervisory Board decision from March this year and signed for 100 A320 Family aircraft (35 A320neo, 35 A321neo and 30 A320ceo with Sharklets).

The Lufthansa Group has been operating the A320 Family since October 1989, and was the launch customer for the A321, and belonged to the first operators of the A319 and A320.

The new order confirms Lufthansas leading position as the largest Airbus airline customer and operator in Europe, increasing its order for the A320 type to 299. Over 150 of these aircraft have already been delivered.

These modern and fuel-efficient aircraft will meet the future growth and fleet renewal needs of the Lufthansa Group airlines. By purchasing these aircraft, we will be able in the long term to offer customers a comfortable and modern product in the highly competitive environment. In addition, these aircraft are contributing significantly to reduce noise and emissions wherever we fly our aircraft to, said Nico Buchholz, Executive Vice President, Lufthansa Group Fleet Management.

The A320neo will enter into service from late 2015, followed by the A319neo and A321neo in 2016.
