LONDON – Condor, Germany’s second-largest airline has revealed its new elegant cabin.
Guests will indulge in this new product from autumn 2022 on the new long-haul A330neo, a significant improvement from the 767s.
The long-haul A330neo will be delivered to the airline this year and will fly to holiday destinations that are popular for German travelers. Destinations that will be flown by the new A330neo include the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Seattle, USA.
The new cabin design sets a new precedent for the leisure airline that will certainly rival the German flag carrier of Lufthansa.
Onboard the new long-haul A330neo, there will be a total of 310 seats on a three-class configuration: 30 for Business Class, 64 for Premium Economy Class, and 216 for Economy Class.
The all-new Business Class offers 30 fully lie-flat seats in a 1-2-1 configuration with direct aisle access for all passengers. This is better than its mainline rival Lufthansa seating of 2-2-2 on most of their flagship fleets, the 747-8 or the A350s.
To pamper its passengers, the seat transforms into a 1.99-meter lie-flat, with extra-large foot space.
Business-class guests have access to the latest movies, series, podcasts, and games, all accessible on a minimum 17.3-inch screen in 4K mode, with a touchscreen and remote control.
The comfort also extends to Premium Economy and Economy class goers.
Passengers, in the premium cabin, enjoy more personal space with an extra seat pitch of 15 centimeters and more and a roomier backrest extending up to 15 centimeters.
Both the Premium Economy Class and Economy Class seats have 13.3-inch in-seat 4K monitors with touchscreens, under a 2-4-2 seating configuration in both classes. This came as a surprise as one would think that the premium cabin would be 2-3-2.
Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor said: “With the new cabin design, we are focusing on modern elegance and the color set creates a clear reference to our new brand identity. Our guests’ holiday begins with boarding and continues with the distinctive Condor product and first-class service.”
“With that, our well-established product is complemented by an unprecedented, coherent interior design, with the highest level of comfort, the most diverse and largest in-flight entertainment program to date with an interface for your own Bluetooth headset, as well as high-speed internet connectivity for everyone on board.”
Apart from its new fancy design, Condor also introduces a new feature for all three classes on the new A330neo, and that is new high-speed broadband internet and personal Bluetooth headphones can be connected to the aircraft’s in-flight entertainment system.
Passengers may wave goodbye to those unwanted wires and dongles on long-haul flights, which increases the experience overall.
Condor is in a good position to reap new ‘premium’ markets from Lufthansa, especially on long-haul leisure destinations, as their product is evidently more competitive than the German national carrier, at least for the time being.
