First Lufthansa A320neo starts operations in Frankfurt

FRANKFURT, 26 Jan - The world's best-selling and most fuel efficient single aisle aircraft, the A320neo, started operations in Frankfurt on Sunday at 10:00 local time operating flight LH010 to Hamburg with permanent registration D-AINA (MSN 6801).

The Lufthansa Group, Airbus' largest airline customer and operator, marks a major step in aviation history by being the first airline worldwide to receive the Airbus A320neo. The 180-seat two-class cabin configuration aircraft is equipped with all new engine technology, setting a higher standard in aircraft efficiency, reducing emissions and noise as well as burning 15% less fuel than current generation aircraft.

In addition to Hamburg, Munich is also one of the first destinations of the A320neo.
