In the last hour or so, German leisure carrier Condor has announced an order for three Airbus A330neo aircraft, to sustain further growth in the market.
The carrier has already had multiple units of the type delivered, meaning that this repeat purchase shows continued approval of the aircraft.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Condor Orders Three More Airbus A330neos…
It is understood that the Condor order for three more Airbus A330neos will see deliveries in 2026 and 2027 respectively.
Such an order will expand the long-haul takings to 21 aircraft. In a statement, the airline said the following:
“The 16 aircraft originally ordered will completely replace the current B767 fleet by spring 2024 as part of the long-haul fleet renewal program.”
“In addition, Condor announced last fall that it had ordered two more A330neo aircraft, making a total of 18 aircraft, to join the fleet by the end of 2024.”
“The three additional aircraft of this type will further expand the long-haul fleet.”
This represents strong news for the carrier as such fleet expansion will allow either upgraded frequencies on existing routes, or the opportunity to branch our elsewhere around the world.
Looking ahead, it will be interesting to see what the growth strategy will look like for Condor, with it being clear that the Airbus A330neo will form a major part of that outlook.
All eyes are on the airline to see what is in store for them in the short-term as well as looking towards the end of the decade.
