Bloomberg: Lufthansa considering A320neo order

German airline said to be mulling order for 30 fuel-efficient aircraft

Lufthansa is considering placing a USD$2.5 billion order for 30 A320neo aircraft, Airbus’ projected fuel-efficient aircraft. Bloomberg cites three sources with inside knowledge on the matter. Negotiations, which are confidential, could be completed within a month. The German airline has supported Airbus’ “new engine option” plans for its A320s to be upgraded with these new engines, which are due to be delivered from 2016 and burn 15-16% less fuel.
“This is not only about saving cost but also about image,” said investment analyst Jochen Rothenbacher, commenting on the story. “Lufthansa have always been emphasising how they’re renewing their fleet for efficiency, and this will help them prove that point.”
