Lufthansa orders eight Bombardier CRJ900 NextGen aircraft


Lufthansa has ordered eight brand-new regional jets following prior endorsement of the order placement by the Supervisory Board.



The Bombardier CRJ900* NextGen* jets are destined for service with Lufthansa Regional. Delivery of the new aircraft will take place in the first half 2011.  


The CRJ900 NextGen jet is noted for impressive fuel efficiency, as well as low emission and noise levels, and consumes less than four litres of kerosene per passenger over 100 kilometres. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, the CRJ900 NextGen jet also comes with new seats which provide improved comfort for passengers by allowing for increased legroom. The Lufthansa configuration accommodates up to 86 passengers in aisle or window seats; there are no central seats. The CRJ900 NextGen aircraft is 36.2 metres long with a wingspan of 24.8 metres, and its maximum cruise speed is 880 km/h at a maximum altitude of 12,500 metres. The jet can serve destinations within a range of up to 2,000 kilometres.
