The agreement will cover 41 aircraft, via lease and via direct purchase, powered by Pratt & Whitney engines.
 
“Following Condor’s earlier decision to order the A330neo for its long-haul network, we are double grateful the airline has now also selected the Airbus A320neo Family to modernise its single-aisle-fleet following a thorough evaluation process. We are proud of such a strong vote of confidence and welcome Condor as a future all-Airbus operator,” said Christian Scherer, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International.

"After we will have replaced our entire long-haul fleet with state-of-the-art 2-liter aircraft by the beginning of 2024, it is the logical next step for us to modernise our short- and medium-haul fleet as well. With our new A320neo and A321neo aircraft, we are consistently developing our fleet and ourselves as a company and also taking care of our own aspiration to enable responsible and at the same time comfortable travel with significantly reduced CO2 emissions, significantly lower fuel consumption and less noise," said Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor.

By operating the A320neo and A330neo aircraft side by side, Condor will benefit from the commonality economics these two aircraft Families offer. Condor has been operating the A320 for more than 20 years on its network in Europe.
 
At the end of June 2022 the A320neo Family had totalled more than 8,100 orders from over 130 customers.
