Lufthansa group places order for long haul aircraft


The supervisory board of German airliner Lufthansa has approved the purchase of a total of 40 aircraft for the group’s airlines, its officials said. The 20 Boeing 787-9 and 20 additional Airbus A350-900 planes will primarily be replacing four-engine aircraft. The new planes will be delivered between late 2022 and 2027.

The order has a list-price investment volume of $12 billion. “By replacing four-engine planes with new models, we are laying a sustainable foundation for our future in the long run.

In addition to the cost-effectiveness of the A350 and B787, the significantly lower CO2 emissions of this new generation of long-haul aircraft was also a decisive factor in our investment decision. Read More
