Lufthansa takes delivery of Airbus A320neo with new airline design

Lufthansa has announced it is receiving another new A320neo, which will be the air carrier´s 11th Airbus A320new and the first with Lufthansa´s new design, the company said.

The aircraft will operate from Frankfurt, Germany, and will be named after the city ´Heidenheim an der Brenz´, which Lufthansa has been sponsoring for 13 years.

Lufthansa is the first customer to receive the Airbus A320neo, which celebrated its premiere at the beginning of 2016. The newly developed engine technology, vortex generators on the wings and the aerodynamic sharklets lead to a significant reduction in fuel consumption and noise.

The Lufthansa Group has ordered a total of 122 aircraft of this type, both in the A320neo and A321neo versions; ten are already operating on Lufthansa´s domestic and European route network from Frankfurt Airport.

The livery reflects Lufthansa´s new image and modern premium standards. The fuselage, wings and engines are completely painted brilliant white. The unique white line at the tail supports the streamlined shape of the aircraft. The deep blue tail is optically extended, providing the basis for a large, strong and highly-contrasted presentation of the crane.
