19 new Airbus aircraft for Germany's Condor.....

One of the global leading aircraft leasing and management companies, Air Lease Corporation, has confirmed the placements of 19 new Airbus aircraft with the German leisure and holiday airline Condor on a long lease basis.

This deal includes 17 Airbus A321neos and 2 Airbus A320neos, with the new aircraft scheduled to start arriving with the airline in early 2024 and continue through until mid-2027.  ALC currently leases five aircraft to Condor, including three A321s and two A320s and the new planes are all from ALC’s existing order book with manufacturer Airbus. 

“We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with ALC in the future. We are thankful for this collaboration as it supports Condor in reaching its next milestones,” says Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor. “With the replacement of our entire long-haul fleet, it‘s the obvious next step for us to modernize our short/medium-haul fleet as well. We consistently focus on modern technology, maximum efficiency and the highest customer comfort and as a result, will have one of the greenest fleets in Europe.”

Steven Udvar-Hรกzy, Executive Chairman of Air Lease Corporation said:  “This significant lease placement for 19 Airbus new generation aircraft continues ALC’s excellent relationship with Condor, one of our key German airline customers. -  The A321neo and A320neo are fundamental to Condor’s fleet operations and to maintain the airline’s highly competitive position in the European market.”

“These 19 new Airbus aircraft will provide enhancements to Condor’s customer products as the airline continues to add the most modern, fuel-efficient aircraft to their expanding fleet and offer the highest quality service,” added Lauren Kervick, Assistant Vice President of Air Lease Corporation.

Condor has been taking German holidaymakers to the world's most beautiful leisure destinations for more than 66 years. Every year, more than nine million guests fly with Condor from the nine largest airports in Germany, from Zurich in Switzerland and Vienna in Austria to around 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and America. Condor operates a fleet of over 50 aircraft, which are maintained by the company's own maintenance operation, Condor Technik GmbH, according to the highest safety standards at the Frankfurt and Dusseldorf locations.
