Lufthansa: Optimized approach in Munich saves fuel


Since October 2013, the process known as Continuous Descent Operations (CDO ) gives the pilot the opportunity, when descending to Munich Airport from the North, to optimize their descent within the framework of certain altitude and speed windows. In comparison to conventional methods, such an approach saves around 100 liters of kerosene on a long-haul flight and around 50 litres per short-haul flight.

Some of the key performance indicators used in the past such as operating profit or return on sales are now defined differently, or go by a different name. The corresponding prior-year figures were adjusted retrospectively so that the Q1 results can still be compared with previous reporting periods.
