Eurowings to become new A320 operator
Lufthansa Group’s supervisory board has approved the purchase of ten A320ceo aircraft for its subsidiary Eurowings. The new aircraft will become the backbone of the new low cost business model announced by the Lufthansa Group in July 2014, which foresees Eurowings operations on direct connections within Europe. The Lufthansa Group is Airbus’ biggest airline group operator with over 400 Airbus aircraft in operation and is also Airbus’ biggest airline customer with over 580 aircraft purchased, including today’s new order. Lufthansa Group runs one of the largest Airbus A320 Family fleet in the world, with almost 300 A320 Family aircraft currently in service. Eurowings has already operated Airbus A319s in the nineties and early 2000s.
