Kerosene and Emissions
Efficiency record: 4.06 l/100 pkm
The Lufthansa Group flies more and more fuel-efficiently: In 2012, the specific kerosene consumption fell to only 4.06 liters per 100 passenger kilometers, after having already reached a record company low the previous year with a value of 4.18 liters per 100 passenger kilometers. This represents a decline of 2.8 percent over 2011. The specific CO2 emissions fell proportionally.
Specific fuel consumption, passenger transportation
In addition, it is especially encouraging that the Lufthansa Group’s absolute fuel consumption declined from 9.02 million to 8.88 million tonnes of kerosene – even though the Group’s flying companies transported more payload and carried significantly more passengers to their destinations during the reporting year. This illustrates that the aviation group has successfully continued its decoupling of transport performance from fuel consumption. While the Lufthansa Group’s transport performance has grown by 329 percent since 1991, its kerosene consumption has only increased by 183 percent.
