Condor Airlines’ latest widebody Airbus A330neo has touched down at Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) just in time for the peak summer season.

This eye-catching aircraft, adorned with Condor’s signature stripes, marks a new chapter in sustainable travel between Halifax and Europe.

Passengers can look forward to four non-stop flights a week to Condor’s Frankfurt hub (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday). These flights offer convenient connections to over 100 destinations across Europe and beyond.

A330neo Configuration

The A330neo represents a significant upgrade from the previous generation Boeing 767s. This next-generation aircraft boasts increased passenger and cargo capacity.

Condor’s A330neo will offer unrivalled inflight passenger comfort and will accommodate 310 passengers. It is configured with 30 seats in Business, 64 seats in Premium Economy and 216 seats in Economy class.

The new Condor Business Class offers 30, lie-flat (180-degree) seats in a 1-2-1 configuration with direct aisle access for all guests.

The seat conveniently converts to a 76-inch long by 19-inch wide bed. Business Class guests have access to the latest movies, series, podcasts, and games. These are all accessible on a 17.3-inch screen in 4K mode, with touchscreen and remote control.

In Premium Economy Class, guests enjoy more personal space thanks to a generous extra seat pitch of 35 inches and a greater backrest angle of up to six inches.

In addition, the multi-adjustable headrest and footrest at every seat ensure a significantly more comfortable flight experience.

The move to the new A330neo allows Condor to cater to the growing demand between Nova Scotia and Europe.

A330neo: Sustainable Quieter Operations

The A330neo is a champion of eco-friendly travel, equipped with cutting-edge Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, new wings, and innovative aerodynamics. It effectively reduces Condor’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by an impressive 20%.

Here’s what that translates to: the A330neo consumes a mere half-gallon of fuel per passenger for every 62 miles flown, making it a leader in fuel efficiency.

This innovative aircraft is already certified to meet the stricter CO2 emission regulations coming into effect in 2028, minimizing travelers’ environmental footprint.

The A330neo also features state-of-the-art flight and navigation systems, allowing for optimized approach and departure procedures.

This translates to quieter operations, reducing noise pollution by up to 60%, even at high-altitude airports.

Strengthening a Longstanding Partnership

The arrival of the A330neo marks a significant milestone in the two-decade-long partnership between Condor and Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

“We’re excited to bring our new, efficient, and environmentally friendly A330neo to beautiful Halifax and Nova Scotia,” said Mikko Turtiainen, Director of Sales for the Americas at Condor.

“This next-generation aircraft offers increased capacity and, thanks to our new codeshare agreement with WestJet, provides seamless connections across Canada.”

“This opens up even more possibilities for Canadians traveling to Europe this summer.”

Marie Manning, Vice President, Business Development, and Chief Commercial Officer at the Halifax International Airport Authority, echoed this sentiment.

“We’re thrilled to see Condor’s iconic stripes back in our skies this summer, offering four weekly flights.”

“The A330neo’s increased capacity will meet the strong demand for travel between Halifax and Europe, and we thank Condor for their continued investment in our region.”

Condor will be operating from a total of 18 North American cities to Frankfurt this summer, with Halifax being one of them. Five of these cities are in Canada: Toronto (YYZ), Vancouver (YVR), Calgary (YYC), and Edmonton (YEG).

Condor Airlines, established in Germany in 1955, boasts a long-standing reputation for excellence in leisure travel. It offers a reliable and cost-effective gateway to over 65 destinations across Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America.

Depending on the route, Condor offers a range of seating configurations, including Economy Class, Premium Economy Class, and Business Class.

Additionally, Condor offers customized travel experiences through convenient charter flights.
