Condor already operates the A320-200, the A321 and the A330. By adding the neo, the carrier will continue to benefit from a 'one maker' approach which makes operations and maintenance typically more efficient.
Condor currently operates Boeing 757s and 767s but will phase these out by 2028 and 2024 respectively to streamline operations as mentioned above.
“Following Condor’s earlier decision to order the A330neo for its long-haul network, we are double grateful the airline has now also selected the Airbus A320neo Family to modernise its single-aisle-fleet following a thorough evaluation process. We are proud of such a strong vote of confidence and welcome Condor as a future all-Airbus operator,” says Christian Scherer, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International.
"After we will have replaced our entire long-haul fleet with state-of-the-art 2-liter aircraft by the beginning of 2024, it is the logical next step for us to modernize our short- and medium-haul fleet as well. With our new A320neo and A321neo aircraft, we are consistently developing our fleet and ourselves as a company, and also taking care of our own aspiration to enable responsible and at the same time comfortable travel with significantly reduced CO2 emissions, significantly lower fuel consumption and less noise," says Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor.
The new planes will utilize Pratt & Whitney PW1127G engines.
Condor will start taking deliveries in 2024.
