A300. Since then the Lufthansa Group’s airlines have placed orders for 582 aircraft with Airbus – which makes it the European aircraft manufacturer’s largest customer. The flying companies’ fleet development at a glance: Lufthansa In January 2016, Lufthansa was the first customer worldwide to receive the Airbus A320neo (see illustration), which marks the start of a new era of eco-efficient flying. Thanks to quieter engines, this model’s noise footprint during takeoff is reduced by half, compared with similar previous models. In addition, all new A320neo and A321neo aircraft are equipped with vortex generators as standard, which further reduce noise emissions. The A320neo is also more than 15 percent more fuel-effi- cient than preceding models, which trans- lates into about 5,000 tonnes of CO2 emis- sions avoided per aircraft per year. This is the equivalent of 485 flights between Berlin and Paris. According to current plans, Airbus will deliver five A320neos to Lufthansa by the end of 2016, which will be stationed in Frankfurt. The Lufthansa Group has 116 Lufthansa and the CSeries to Swiss are world premieres for these types of aircraft, which both set new standards for fuel consumption and noise emissions. At the same time, the delivery of the first A320neo to Lufthansa is further proof of the special nature of the partnership be- tween Airbus and the aviation group, which has been unfolding for 40 years. In 1976 Lufthansa took delivery of the first Airbus 52 new aircraft in 2016 and two world premieres In 2016 alone the Lufthansa Group will take delivery of 52 new aircraft, of which the 34 airplanes from the A320 family account for the largest share. In addition, there are two Airbus A350s, one A330, six Boeing 777-300ERs and nine Bombardier CS100s. The deliveries of the A320neo to “Thanks to new engine technology and aerody- namic optimizations, the A320neo is more than 15 percent more fuel-efficient than the preceding model. The aircraft flies excep- tionally well and quietly – a mile- stone in active noise protection!” Captain Sascha Unterbarnscheidt A320 Fleet Chief Deutsche Lufthansa AG World premiere: At the beginning of 2016 Lufthansa received the first Airbus A320neo, marking a new era of eco-efficient flying.  30 // Sustainable Business Practices
