LUFTHANSA POISED TO ORDER 30 A320NEO AIRCRAFT

Lufthansa is rumoured to be poised to order around 30 A320neo aircraft. The deal has been valued at $2.5 billion at list prices. As fuel prices continue to spike, more airlines will be attracted to the Neo simply for the more fuel-efficient engines. Airbus stated the new engines on the Neo – the geared turbofan engine built by Pratt & Whitney unit and the Leap-X from CFM International – would save 15% in fuel costs.

Lufthansa already operates 117 A320 aircraft and has two A321s, 22 A319s and eight Embraer E195 regional jets on order for delivery starting in 2012. It is expecting delivery of 20 747s and will eventually have a total of 15 A380s. It is also considering ordering either the 787 or the A350.
