Lufthansa has placed a firm order for 25 Airbus A320neos and five A321neos, all powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G turbofans, the European manufacturer announced this morning. This contract follows the selection by the Lufthansa supervisory board of the A320neo family in March this year. This latest order by Lufthansa Group raises its order total to 443 Airbus airplanes.

Lufthansa expects deliveries of the A320neos to start in 2016. Schedules call for the first A321neo to roll out of the Airbus assembly hall in 2017.
