Condor A330neo performs successful test flight

Ready for takeoff: The first of the 18 new Condor A330-900neo long-haul aircraft took off yesterday on its first test flight. At around 1:30 p.m. local time, the aircraft, which will in future be identified as D-ANRA and painted in stripes of the colour " Island," took off from Toulouse. During the test flight over the Pyrenees and the Atlantic coast, which lasted several hours, all tests were successfully completed and the aircraft landed safely back in Toulouse. The first Condor A330neo will go on route later this year, with Mauritius and the Maldives among its first destinations.

From the end of this year, the first factory-new Airbus A330neo will join the Condor fleet. This will be followed by the rollover of the entire short- and medium-haul fleet from 2024. With the 2-litre aircraft on long-haul routes and ultra-modern short- and medium-haul aircraft in the A32Xneo family, Condor is consistently focusing on state-of-the-art technology, maximum efficiency and the highest level of customer comfort and will have one of the greenest fleets in all of Europe.
