Lufthansa receives first A321neo


The Lufthansa Group has received its first A321neo in Frankfurt, which will be operated by Lufthansa.

The aircraft features a new, improved seat and will be jointly introduced on the three network airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines.

Each row of seats has its own USB ports in the current and future standard, which for the first time in the Lufthansa Group will also be available on short-haul flights.

In future, Lufthansa Group passengers will also be able to set up their own tablets even more conveniently. A special column has been inserted into the table to facilitate the tablet holder.

In addition to benefits for customers, the reduction of weight and thus CO2 emissions, as well as maintenance costs, were the focus of development.

The newly-developed engine technologies from Pratt & Whitney and CFM International, as well as the aerodynamic wingtips (sharklets) with which the aircraft are equipped, will lead to a significant fuel reduction of up to 20% per seat kilometre.
