The rst ten A350s of 25 on order will be stationed in Munich from January 2017 and will likely serve Delhi and Boston as their rst destinations. At the same time, Lufthansa Technik is preparing its technical services for the Airbus A350. The expansion of a state-of-the-art warehouse for supplying spare parts at the Munich base began in December 2015. The eet modernization also means the end of an era because Lufthansa says “Bye, bye Bobby” as it has been decom- missioning its remaining Boeing 737s since the end of 2015. The last Boeing 737s will leave the Lufthansa eet by the end of 2016 to make room for more ef cient types of aircraft. Most of the Boeing 737s will be recycled in the United States (see page 56, Recycling of aircraft components). Swiss Swiss is set to take delivery of nine CS100s from Bombardier in 2016. It will be the rst airline worldwide to start revenue service with the CSeries, which is speci cally gear- ed at smaller markets. The aircraft will serve European routes and replace the currently operated Avro RJ100 regional aircraft step by step. The CSeries’ most signi cant environmental statistics are just as positive as those of the A320neo. Per- ceptible noise is reduced signi cantly, compared with the preceding aircraft gen- eration, and CO2 emissions are 20 percent lower. Swiss has a total of 30 CSeries air- craft on order, including ten CS100s and ten larger CS300s. The airline will decide later which type will be delivered for the remaining ten orders. Furthermore, at the beginning of 2016 Swiss received the rst two of nine Boeing 777-300ERs it has on order, which will be delivered by 2018. This long-haul aircraft is the airline’s new agship and will replace older Airbus A340-300s. The latest addition to the eet distinguishes itself above all with tried-and-tested technology, the highest levels of reliability and its ef ciency. Thanks to its advanced GE90-115BL engines, the largest operated on civil aircraft, the B777- 300ER consumes about 20 percent less kerosene than the A340-300 and also emits correspondingly less CO2. At the same time, passenger comfort is signi - cantly enhanced by a completely revised cabin interior in all three travel classes. During a one-year trial period, passengers can also take advantage of wireless Internet on board and use roaming telephony, including texting and data functions. Austrian Airlines Austrian Airlines is currently in the process of replacing its Fokker eet with modern Embraer E 195 medium-haul aircraft, which have been operated by Lufthansa CityLine. This twin-engined aircraft is substantially more ef cient than the Fokker 70s and 100s currently operated by Austrian Airlines. In November 2015, Austrian Airlines received the rst of 17 Embraer E 195s; their integra- tion into the eet is to be completed by the end of 2017. Eurowings The new Eurowings successfully took off at the end of 2015, concentrating primarily on point-to-point business with a focus on leisure travel. By April 2017, the Lufthansa Group’s innovative quality low-cost airline will replace its entire eet, which initially consisted of 23 smaller Bombardier CRJ900s, with Airbus A320 aircraft. In 2016 alone, 19 new A320s are to reinforce the existing Eurowings eet. The airline operates its intercontinental services with Airbus A330-200 long-haul aircraft, of which it already has two in its eet. Eurowings plans to expand its long-haul eet step-by-step to a total of seven Airbus A330s. Lufthansa Cargo In February 2015, Lufthansa Cargo re- ceived its fth Boeing 777F and success- fully integrated the ve freighters of this type it had on order into ight operations. The Boeing 777F is considered the quietest and most fuel-ef cient freight aircraft in its class. Additionally, it offers a long range and high levels of reliability. In August 2015, Lufthansa Flight Training (LFT) inaugurated a new ight simulator in Frankfurt to be able to train the increased numbers of Boeing 777 pilots directly on site in the future. Taking into account the continuing dif cul- ties of the economic environment, Lufthansa Cargo plans to reduce its eet and retire two MD-11Fs in 2016. Thus only 12 freight- ers of this type will operate on the logistic specialist’s route network. 32 // Sustainable Business Practices
