Germany’s flag carrier and the country’s largest airline, Lufthansa said that it will receive its first ultra-modern long-haul Dreamliner Boeing 787-9 aircraft following certification by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) this summer.
The Lufthansa Boeing 787-9 with the registration D-ABPA and the future name Berlin will consume an average of around 2.5 liters of kerosene per passenger and 100 kilometers flown.
That is around 25 percent less than their predecessor aircraft. The CO2 emissions are also improved accordingly.
The Boeing 787-9 Berlin will have an improved cabin product—including direct aisle access for all guests in Business Class.
Following several weeks of planned cabin refurbishments at Lufthansa’s maintenance facility in Frankfurt, the aircraft will be deployed initially on domestic German routes for training purposes.
The first intercontinental scheduled destination of the Lufthansa Dreamliner will be Toronto.
In total, the Lufthansa Group has ordered 32 Boeing “Dreamliner” with delivery between 2022 and 2027.
