At the beginning of February, Condor has taken delivery of its third Airbus A330-900neo from the French manufacturer.

Registered as D-ANRI, the aircraft flew from Airbus’ manufacturing facility in Toulouse, Southern France to Condor’s base in Frankfurt, Germany to join Condor’s previously delivered two Airbus A330-900neos.

Both of the carrier’s first two aircraft are registered as D-ANRA and D-ANRH.

According to data from RadarBox, D-ANRI departed Toulouse Blagnac Airport (TLS) at 19.09 pm local time as callsign DANRI.

The aircraft then flew across eastern France, overhead Switzerland, and up towards Frankfurt from southern Germany crossing the German border between Zurich and Stuttgart. The aircraft cruised at 40,000 feet.

DANRI finally landed at Frankfurt Airport (FRA) at 20.48 pm local time after a flight duration of one hour and 38 minutes.

D-ANRI is Condor’s second Airbus A330-900neo sporting their green ‘Island’ striped livery, with the other green ‘Island’ striped liveried aircraft being their first A330-900neo delivered, D-ANRA.

Condor’s second Airbus A330-900neo, D-ANRH, flies the carrier’s beige ‘Beach’ striped livery.

The carrier is set to receive a further 15 Airbus A330-900neos, which will give them a total of 18 of the type once all deliveries have been completed over the coming years.

Their new Airbus A330-900neos is set to replace the existing four Airbus A330-200s that Condor has leased from Altavair AirFinance and Avolon in order to help train its pilots in readiness for the carrier to bring in the Airbus A330neos more seamlessly.

Their new A330neos will also replace the carrier’s aging nine Boeing 767-300ERs.

Not only is Condor taking on Airbus’ latest A330 variant, but in the coming years, they will also bring in 13 Airbus A320neos and 28 Airbus A321neos.
