Condor has announced an order for 16 Airbus A330neo, set to replace its existing Boeing 767 long-haul fleet.
The German leisure airline will add the new aircraft type starting in Fall 2022, just over one year from now. By mid-2024, Condor expects the delivery of all 16 Airbus jets to be completed and the currently 15 Boeing 767-300ER to be phased out.
The A330-900neo aircraft will be equipped with Wifi, but most details about the cabin configuration are not yet confirmed. It will feature an Economy, Premium Economy and Business class. The airline says it will communicate further details in the coming weeks and months.
Condor has not publicly disclosed whether the jets are ordered directly from aircraft manufacturer Airbus or via a leasing or financing company.
The Airbus A330-900neo is a modernized version of the A330-300. It features new and more efficient Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines and improved aerodynamics.
