New Condor A330neo takes off from Frankfurt for the first time

This week the Condor A330neo with the registration D-ANRE took off for the first time with guests on board. On the way from Frankfurt to the Maldives, guests will enjoy the new Condor product of the fourth new long-haul aircraft. 

The aircraft was transferred from the Airbus site in Toulouse to Frankfurt in the middle of last week. Since then, the final work on the aircraft and the required aeronautical inspections have been carried out. With the transfer of the A330neo to its own AOC, the first passenger flight could take place today.

Condor expects to take delivery of a total of 18 factory-new long-haul aircraft, which will completely replace the current B767 fleet by 2024 as part of the overall long-haul fleet renewal program. This year, Germany's most popular vacation carrier is expecting one new aircraft a month. The 2-liter aircraft boasts state-of-the-art engines from Rolls Royce and special aerodynamics. Thanks to the latest technology, these are particularly efficient and can run on sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), resulting in 20 percent lower CO2 emissions with significant fuel savings. Condor thus inextricably links vacation and responsible travel.
