New aircraft for Condor: Airbus A330-900neo
Written by: Ivo Gračanin.
German leisure carrier Condor has decided to order 16 Airbus A330-900neo of the latest generation. The Supervisory Board has already agreed. As the German launch customer for the Airbus A330neo, Condor is thus focusing on latest technology, maximum efficiency and the highest level of customer comfort. Fuel consumption per passenger per 100 kilometres will be 2.1 litres, which makes Condor the European frontrunner on long-haul flights. The first aircraft is 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."
