On Wednesday (April 25, 2024), Airbus announced the delivery of Condor’s first Airbus A320neo on lease from aircraft lessor Avolon.  The latest delivery is part of the carrier’s ongoing fleet modernization program, which already includes new Airbus A330neos for long-haul operations.  Condor will benefit from the advantages of a high degree of fleet commonality between the two aircraft Families.  Condor has operated Airbus A320 Family jets on their European route network for over 20 years, and the introduction of the A320neo builds on their wealth of experience, while delivering more comfort and efficiency.

Condor’s new Airbus A320neo fleet will be powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines and feature Airbus’ spacious and comfortable Airspace cabin.  With modern engines and improved aerodynamics, the A320neo Family delivers a fuel burn and CO2 emissions reduction of at least 20 percent compared to previous generation aircraft, as well as a 50 percent smaller noise footprint.  As of march 31, 2024, the A320neo Family had won over 10,000 orders from more than 130 customers, of which 3,000 have been delivered. 

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.
