Fleet Renewal is currently the keydriver for reducing CO2
The Lufthansa Group focuses on a modern, efficient and well-structured fleet and continues to invest in its fundamental renewal. This will enable the Airline Group to continue to offer leading product quality and at the same time fly even more economically and quietly.
Currently, the most important driver for reducing CO₂ emissions from flight operations is investing continuously in modern, particularly fuel-efficient aircraft and engine technologies. At the same time, efficient concepts for take-off and landing are being implemented and the digitization of approach technologies advances.
Lufthansa Group pushes ahead with fleet modernization
Lufthansa Group pushes ahead with fleet modernization and purchases ten state-of-the-art long-haul aircraft (five Airbus A350-900s and five Boeing 787-9 aircraft). These aircraft contribute strongly to enhancing sustainability by reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions by 30 percent. With the Airbus A350-900, the Boeing 777-9 and the Boeing 787-9, the Lufthansa Group will operate the most fuel-efficient long-haul aircraft in terms of kerosene consumption per passenger and 100 kilometers flown. On average, the new aircraft fleet will only consume approximately 2.5 liters of kerosene per passenger and 100 kilometers flown. This is about 30 percent less than many current as well as previously operated long-haul aircraft models and will have an equally positive impact on the Group’s carbon footprint.
