Balance 2015 ENG - Fuel consumption and emissions

Less CO2 3.8 l* Better aero- dynamics More lightweight design Higher efficiency Lower fuel consumption Fuel consumption and emissions Lufthansa Group’s airlines achieve new efficiency record The Lufthansa Group again set a new efficiency record in 2014: On average, the aircraft of the passenger fleets consumed only 3.84 liters of kerosene to carry one passenger over a distance of 100 kilometers (3.91 l/100 pkm in 2013). This is an improvement of 1.6 percent compared with the preceding year. Thus, the Lufthansa Group again met the aviation industry’s ambitious goal of increasing efficiency by 1.5 percent per year. Be it Lufthansa, Swiss, Austrian Airlines or Germanwings – all Group airlines further improved their specific consump- tion values (see pie charts, page 40). In the same way the freight aircraft of Lufthansa Cargo flew more efficiently than ever before with a fuel consumption value of 0.183 liters/tonne kilometer. This corresponds to a 5.2 percent improve- ment compared with 2013. Group-wide, the efficiency in freight transport increased by 0.8 percent in 2014. The Lufthansa Group’s absolute fuel consumption increased slightly by 0.7 percent during the reporting year, while transport performance rose by 1.9 percent. Thus, the aviation company successfully continued the trend of decoupling transport performance and fuel consumption. The Group’s transport performance has increased by 347 per- cent since 1991, while fuel consumption only rose by 182 percent (see graphic, page 40).
