Airbus on Wednesday delivered the 600th Airbus aircraft to Lufthansa group at a ceremony at the aircraft OEM’s Hamburg-Finkenwerder site.

Lufthansa took delivery of its first Airbus A300B2 on February 9, 1976. More than ten different Airbus aircraft types have been supplied since then to almost every air operator in the Lufthansa Group. The 600th aircraft delivered is an Airbus A321neo.

“Lufthansa has served no fewer than four times as Airbus’s launching customer for a new aircraft type, most recently for the A320neo family that is proving such a success,” said Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Lufthansa Group Executive Board. “Lufthansa has ordered every family of aircraft that Airbus has developed over the past five decades. And more than 90 per cent of the 600 Airbuses that we have taken delivery of during that time are still in Lufthansa Group service today.”

“Lufthansa and Airbus have been partners ever since we delivered the first Lufthansa A300 back in February 1976,” said Guillaume Faury, Airbus CEO. “Since then, Lufthansa has taken delivery of an Airbus aircraft an average of every month – 600 of them in almost 50 years! No other airline group has received more of our aircraft to date…”

Lufthansa signed its first purchase agreement with Airbus for three A300B2s in 1975.
