Condor’s last Boeing 767-300ER passenger flight arrived in Frankfurt on Tuesday (March 12th).  The aircraft, registration D-ABUK, departed Cuba with 193 passengers on March 11th, 2024, at 22:05 local time.

On Tuesday (March 12, 2024), Condor announced the end of an era, as their final Boeing 767-300ER passenger flight, aircraft registration D-ABUK, touched down in Frankfurt.  The aircraft’s final flight for Condor departed Cuba with 193 passengers at 22:05 local time on Monday, March 11, 2024.  Condor received their first three Boeing 767-300ERs in 1991, which were originally configured with 24 Comfort Class and 245 Economy Class seats.  Over the years, the configuration evolved into the final three-class 259 seat format, with Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class seats.  Over the years, Condor’s 767 fleet had seen a total of 13 different liveries, including ‘JA zu FRA’ and ‘Janosch’, as well as the retro ‘Achim’ livery.   


In Tuesday’s announcement, Condor’s COO and Accountable Manager, Christian Schmitt, said,


“The Boeing 767 was successfully operated by Condor for over 30 years. The most recently retired D-ABUC even holds the Boeing record for flight hours of this type.  With the advances in technology, product and sustainability, the modernization has now become necessary.  The aircraft has a very special significance for Condor and its many employees. We are convinced that its reliability and resilience have been an important aspect of Condor's success in recent years. The last passenger flight marks the end of an era.”


Condor has successfully phased out a total of 16 Boeing 767s since 2022, which have successively been replaced with new Airbus A330neos.  The final 767, registration D-ABUK, will no longer be part of the carrier’s AOC from mid-April 2024.  The aircraft is scheduled to take flight with a Condor crew on April 16, 2024 via Bangor (Maine) to Goodyear (Arizona), where it will be returned to the lessor. 


Founded in 1956, Condor Flugdienst GmbH is Germany’s favorite leisure airline and serves over nine million guests annually to 90 destinations in Europe, Africa, and America from nine German gateways, Zurich and Vienna.  The German leisure carrier has a fleet of over 50 aircraft which are meticulously maintained to the highest safety standards by their wholly owned subsidiary Condor Technik with facilities in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf.  Condor was the German launch customer for the state-of-the-art Airbus A330neo.
