Purchase options for 24 Airbus A320neo and three A321neo will be converted into firm orders. With this decision, the Lufthansa Group is reacting to the positive market and earnings development and thus ensuring the necessary fleet size in the coming years.
The total investment of this order amounts to a list price of about three billion US dollars.
"This increases the total number of A320neo and A321neo orders to 149 for the Group, 13 of them are already operating with Lufthansa."
