Next Saturday (June 4th, 2016), Lufthansa will bring to ILA Berlin Air Show 2016 two state-of-the-art aircraft and will provide information about sustainable mobility. The first Airbus A320neo produced worldwide (D-AINA) will land at 09:10 AM CEST, followed by a Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental, better known as the Fanhansa “Siegerflieger” or “Winner’s Plane” (D-ABYI) at 09:35 AM CEST. The public will be able to visit the cabin of the 747-8I, while the A320neo will be part in the flight program at 02:30 PM CEST.
It will be conducted a presentation of the Airbus A320neo and further technological advances, for example, the software program OMEGA. On this way, the airline supports this year motivation from ILA; “Sustainability and Technological Innovation”. The Lufthansa Group consistently pursues the “Four Pillar Strategy” for climate protection, which consists of technological, operational, infrastructural and economic measures.
Lufthansa Group has been committed to climate research for over 20 years. The visit of both aircraft this year at ILA is CO2 neutral, which means Lufthansa compensates the emissions produced by means of a donation to the climate protection organization myclimate. The airline’s passengers have been able to offset the individual CO2 emissions caused by air travel since 2007. The Lufthansa Group subsidiaries, Austrian Airlines and Swiss, offer their customers relevant compensation programs.
The Lufthansa Group is performing the biggest fleet renewal program in the group’s history and invests in highly efficient and quiet aircraft. On the end of the year, Lufthansa will receive its first Airbus A350 XWB, a modern and fuel-efficient airplane. By 2025, the Lufthansa Group will have received 251 latest generation aircraft at a list price of approximately 40 billion Euros. This year alone a total of 52 brand new aircraft are to be delivered to the Lufthansa Group.
