Specific fuel consumption drops to 3.65 liters per 100 passenger kilometers
The Lufthansa Group again established a new efficiency record in the reporting year: in 2018, the aircraft of the passenger fleets needed only 3.65 liters of kerosene on average to transport one passenger over a distance of 100 kilometers (2017: 3.68 l/100 pkm). This is an improvement of 0.8 percent compared with the previous year. SWISS (including Edelweiss Air) was again the most efficient Group airline with an average specific fuel consumption of only 3.15 liters per 100 passenger kilometers – an improvement of 1.34 percent compared with 2017.
The new fuel efficiency record is in large part the result of the longterm fleet modernization program and numerous operative measures aimed at conserving kerosene.
The Lufthansa Group is a global aviation group with a total of more than 550 subsidiaries and equity investments.
