December 19, 2022 – Welcome home, Condor A330neo: This evening, the first factory-new Condor A330neo landsat Frankfurt Airport. The aircraft, with the registration D-ANRA, is the first of the 18 long-haul aircraft on order that will fly for Condor as part of the fleet renewal. The first commercial flight is expected to take place this year from Frankfurt to Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. This will be followed in the coming weeks by other destinations such as the Maldives or Punta Cana, which will be the first one.
"Today is a significant one for Condor and its future. The arrival of our first A330neo in Frankfurt marks the beginning of a new era for Condor," said Ralf Teckentrup, CEO Condor. "The 2-liter aircraft's fuel consumption is well below the industry average and reduces CO2 emissions by 20 percent on the same routes. This, together with state-of-the-art technologies and the highest level of comfort, is leading the way into the future and towards one of the greenest fleets in Europe."
The Condor A330-900neo
Condor's long-haul fleet renewal begins with the first factory-new A330neo. With the new aircraft, Germany's most popular leisure carrier is focusing on innovative further development, outstanding efficiency and maximum customer comfort at the same time. With a much more spacious feel, the latest generation of in-flight entertainment and first-time connectivity on board, guests will be able to start their vacations even more relaxed and with the best feeling. The new aircraft is equipped with state-of-the-art engines from Rolls Royce and special aerodynamics. Thanks to the latest technology, the Trent 7000 engines are particularly efficient and can be operated with sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Among other things, this results in 20 percent lower CO2 emissions and significant fuel savings that are second to none. The Airbus A330neo is the first aircraft in the world already certified for the regulatory reduction in CO2 emissions that will apply from 2028.
The aircraft also features state-of-the-art flight and navigation systems that have been further developed especially for Condor to meet customer-specific requirements. This means that noise- and CO2-efficient approach and departure procedures are possible even at particularly high-altitude airports - in addition, Condor is reducing noise pollution by up to 60 percent with the new aircraft.
