Lufthansa To Purchase 40 Small Short-haul Planes and 40 Single-aisle Planes

Lufthansa, the largest German airline, has announced plans to order 80 new aircraft. The order will be split evenly between small short-haul planes and larger single-aisle planes. Lufthansa's Chief Executive, Carsten Spohr, revealed that the airline is considering ordering 40 small short-haul planes. The models under consideration for this order are Airbus' A220 and Embraer planes.  In addition to the short-haul planes, Lufthansa is also planning to order 40 larger single-aisle planes. The company is currently looking at Airbus' A320 and Boeing's 737 MAX for this part of the order.


This move by Lufthansa is expected to have a significant impact on the aviation industry. The order for 80 new aircraft represents a substantial investment in fleet expansion and modernization. It also signals confidence in the recovery of the aviation industry following the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. 


The decision to split the order between small short-haul planes and larger single-aisle planes reflects Lufthansa's strategic approach to meeting diverse passenger needs. The smaller aircraft will allow for increased frequency on short-haul routes, providing passengers with more flexibility and convenience. On the other hand, the larger single-aisle planes will offer greater capacity for popular routes, ensuring efficient operations.
