Lufthansa has become the latest customer for the Airbus A320neo family, placing a firm order for 25 A320no and five A321neo aircraft, to be powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PW1100G geared turbofan.

“We are proud that Lufthansa has chosen the eco-efficient A320neo Family as its solution for sustainable growth, and one which will fit seamlessly into its existing Airbus A320 fleet,” said John Leahy, Airbus chief operating officer – customers. “Since its launch in December last year, around 1200 orders and commitments for the ‘neo’ have given it the fastest rate of sales ever for any commercial aircraft.”

The Lufthansa Group is Airbus’s largest customer, and this latest commitment takes to 443 the number of Airbus aircraft it has ordered.
