Condor has decided to order 16 Airbus A330-900, thus becoming the German launch customer for the A330neo. Configure with Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy, the first aircraft are expected in autumn 2022, whilst the replacement of the entire long-haul fleet is scheduled to be completed by mid-2024.
“We are introducing the two-litre aircraft into our operations and will be setting new standards: with our modern long-haul fleet, we will inseparably combine sustainability and holidays with Condor in future. On board the quietest cabin in the world on an aircraft of this size, our guests can also expect the highest level of comfort in a brand new Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class,” says Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor. “With our fleet modernisation we reach another milestone in our company’s history and take the next step towards the future.”
The A330neo has special aerodynamics through improved wing design and is equipped with state-of-the-art engines from the manufacturer Rolls Royce. The Trent 7000 engines incorporate the latest technology, deliver exceptional efficiency and are capable of operating on Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). Thus, the A330neo sets new standards with 20 per cent lower CO2 emissions and significant fuel savings. Noise- and CO2-efficient approach and departure procedures are thus possible even at particularly high-altitude airports – but noise pollution is also reduced by up to 60 per cent at German airports.
