On the way out of the pandemic, Lufthansa, the German airline, still has a long way to go. After further losses of billions in the first quarter of the year, the most economically powerful air transport group in Europe lowered its expectations for a gradual recovery of flights and air transport.
Of course, managers are pinning their hopes on a European solution. How vaccinated passengers from Europe and other countries will be treated, according to DW.

At the same time, however, Lufthansa is accelerating the modernization of its fleet. With a large order for new, high-cost, economic aircraft that are replacing older types at short, medium and long distances.

As a result, the Executive Committee of Deutsche Lufthansa AG decided to purchase ten long-haul aircraft. Five Airbus A350-900s and five Boeing B787-9. The supervisory board approved the purchase yesterday. These aircraft will operate under Lufthansa Airline and will enhance the premium offer of 5 stars of the Group’s core brand.

As part of the long-term fleet renewal program, a total of 175 new aircraft will be delivered to Lufthansa Group airlines this decade.
