Fuel consumption and emissions

Fuel efficiency is of central importance for the Lufthansa Group. It can be improved above all by investments in new aircraft as well as by implementing efficiency measures in the existing fleet. 

Specific fuel consumption drops by 4.5 percent to 3.68 liters per 100 passenger kilometers

The Lufthansa Group has set a new fuel efficiency record. In 2017, the aircraft of the passenger fleets required an average of just 3.68 liters of kerosene to transport a passenger 100 kilometers (2016: 3.85 l/100 pkm). This represents an improvement of 4.5 percent compared to the previous year. The Lufthansa Group has thus more than satisfied the airline industry target of annual efficiency gains of 1.5 percent. All airlines belonging to the Group contributed to this achievement.
