The AUA parent company is strengthening its premium location and will again be offering First Class on selected routes in the future.

The airline is feeling a significant increase in premium demand - not only in the business but also in the private travel sector. That is why five Airbus A340-600s with four travel classes are temporarily being brought out of hibernation, including a first class with eight seats. From summer 2022, the long-haul aircraft will mainly fly to destinations in North America and Asia from Munich.

In late summer 2023, the first Airbus A350 with First Class offer will take off from Munich and supplement the premium offer. Before the pandemic began, the Group's Airbus A340-600 fleet consisted of 17 aircraft, twelve of which are currently being sold. Another five aircraft that are not for sale will now be temporarily reactivated and sold at a later date.

Lufthansa continues to invest in the modernization of the fleet. It was only in May that the company bought ten more state-of-the-art long-haul aircraft, the first of which will fly in winter. In the current year alone, Lufthansa will receive an average of a new, fuel-efficient Airbus aircraft from the A320neo family for short and medium-haul routes every month. The delivery of a further 107 Airbus aircraft of the A320neo family is planned by 2027.
