Airbus’ new Single-Aisle Airspace cabin enters into service with Lufthansa Group

First airline in Europe to feature Airbus’ new Airspace cabin on Single-Aisle aircraft

Frankfurt, 6. September 2021 – Lufthansa has started operations with its first A320 Family aircraft – an A321neo – featuring Airbus’ new Single-Aisle Airspace cabin. In doing so, the airline becomes the first operator in Europe to introduce the new Airspace cabin features for passengers on board A320 Family aircraft. In 2018 Lufthansa Group, a long-time A320 Family customer, chose to equip more than 80 of its new A320 Family aircraft on order from Airbus with Airspace cabins.
