Condor receives its first A320neo

German leisure airline Condor has taken an important step in modernizing its fleet by receiving its first Airbus A320neo aircraft.

The newly delivered plane, on lease from Avolon, marks Condor’s introduction of the re-engined A320 family after over 20 years of operating previous generation A320 models.

“The new A320neo fleet will be powered by Pratt & Whitney engines and offer passengers maximum comfort with Airbus’ unique Airspace cabin,” noted the press release from Airbus describing the delivery.

The A320neo provides significant fuel efficiency and environmental benefits compared to older A320 variants.

Airbus states the A320neo reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions by at least 20% along with cutting noise levels in half thanks to the latest engine technologies and aerodynamic enhancements.

Condor has already begun replacing aging long-haul aircraft with newly delivered A330neos as part of its fleet renewal program focused on the Airbus neo products.

As of late March 2024, the A320neo family had accumulated over 10,000 orders from more than 130 customers worldwide, with over 3,000 aircraft delivered since entry into service in 2016.
