The Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG has approved the order of up to 16 additional aircraft. The list price of the aircraft is approximately 2.1 billion euros. Delivery is scheduled to take place in stages until 2022. The investment plan for the 2018 fiscal year remains unchanged.
The order includes two Boeing 777-300ER long-haul aircraft for Swiss.

An additional two Boeing 777F freighters (top) will be ordered for Lufthansa Cargo. The modern freighter aircraft will replace MD-11 cargo planes in the future.
The Supervisory Board has also approved the order of up to twelve short- and medium-haul A320-type aircraft. This includes six delivery options for aircraft of the Airbus A320neo (new engine option) type in 2022 that were converted to fixed orders. When they are delivered, they will replace older aircraft in the flight operations of the Lufthansa Group. Depending on availability, up to six additional A320ceo (current engine option) will be ordered. The plan is to deploy them at Lufthansa this year already, in order to offset delivery delays for Airbus A320neo aircraft.
