The Lufthansa Group has 32 firm orders for the 787 and joins nearly 50 customers worldwide who operate the aircraft.

“With the Boeing 787, we are introducing another modern aircraft type that is one of the most fuel-efficient long-haul aircraft in our fleet,” said Jens Ritter, CEO of Lufthansa.

Boeing delivers first 787 since May 2021.

Since commercial service began in 2011, the 787 family has launched more than 325 new nonstop routes around the world. The 787-9 can carry 296 passengers up to 7,565 nautical miles (14,010 km) in a two-class configuration.

“Today’s delivery to the Lufthansa Group is an important milestone for both companies as we resume 787 deliveries in Europe and Lufthansa takes delivery of its first 787. I am delighted to see Lufthansa join a growing set of airlines around the world that they operate the most capable twin-engine aircraft in the industry. said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

In addition to the 32 787 Dreamliners on order, the Lufthansa Group has firm orders for 20 777-9 airliners and recently placed a firm order for seven of the new 777-8 Freighter.
