On Thursday (May 26, 2022), Eurowings announced the launch of new service between Düsseldorf and Palma de Mallorca with their first new Airbus A320neo, registration D-AENA.

Eurowings will also take delivery of six additional new A320neos during 2022 and one more in 2024. The first A320neo, D-AENA, features a special livery and will serve as a sustainability ambassador for the Lufthansa Group as part of the company’s #makechangefly initiative.
In Thursday’s announcement, Eurowings’ CEO, Jens Bischof, said,
“Together with the Lufthansa Group, we want to fly at the top of the competition in all areas, also and especially when it comes to sustainability. The brand-new Eurowings aircraft, which is equipped with a special logo, is one of the first ambassadors for the recently launched, broad-based sustainability initiative of the Lufthansa Group, #makechangefly. It bundles the most important projects for achieving the climate goals that the Lufthansa Group has set for itself: carbon-neutral by 2050.”
Featuring leading technology from Airbus and CFM International LEAP engines, Eurowings’ new Airbus A320neo offers a 50 percent smaller noise footprint and up to a 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption and emissions compared to previous generation aircraft.
