FRANKFURT, GERMANY — German leisure carrier Condor recently received the 100th A330neo, an A330-900, marking a significant milestone for Airbus and its A330neo Family. Condor ordered 16 A330neos to replace older models in its fleet, aiming to reduce operating costs, fuel consumption, and CO2 emissions. 

Since the first A330-900 was delivered to launch operator TAP Air Portugal in late 2018, the A330neo Family now serves 22 airlines on over 200 routes and destinations globally.

Condor already operates Airbus A330-200 aircraft for short-haul, medium-haul, and long-haul flights to holiday destinations within Europe and North Africa. In July 2021, the German airline placed an order for 16 long-haul A330-900neos. In February 2022, Condor received official certification for commercial flights with its first A330-200, registration D-AIYC. This aircraft is one of four A330-200s expected to serve with Condor on a transitional basis until 2024, as the airline gradually integrates the new A330neo long-haul aircraft featuring a three-class product into its operations.

The A330neo allows airlines to access both transatlantic and regional routes and is known for its advanced technology, high efficiency, and attractive cabin layout. The airline claims that the A330neo boasts the "quietest cabin in the world for an aircraft of this size." Furthermore, Condor aimed to improve the seating architecture for its 310 Business Class, Premium Economy Class, and Economy Class seats to enhance comfort, while also taking advantage of the larger overhead bins available on the A330neo.
