A good day for Airbus, thanks to German Airline Condor

A320

German Airline Condor Flugdienst GmbH has selected the A320neo Family to modernize its Single-Aisle-fleet.

The Airbus purchase includes 41 planes via lease and via direct purchase. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney engines.

“Following Condor’s earlier decision to order the A330neo for its long-haul network, we are double grateful the airline has also selected the Airbus A320neo Family to modernize 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 responsibly 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.

By operating the A320neo and A330neo aircraft side by side, Condor will benefit from the commonality economics these two aircraft Families offer. Condor has been operating the A320 for over 20 years on its European network. The new A320neo fleet will feature the Airbus Airspace Cabin, offering passengers the highest level of comfort.

At the end of June 2022, the A320neo Family had totaled more than 8,100 orders from over 130 customers. Thanks to modern engines and improved aerodynamics, the A320 Family models reduce fuel burn and CO2 emissions by at least 20% compared to its previous generation competitor and 50% noise reduction.
