The German holiday airline Condor wants to move forward to the Airbus A330 model and get two Ceo models ahead of time. A total of 16 A330neo will then be taken over from next year.
According to a report by the portal CH-Aviation.com, Condor will receive the first Airbus A330-200 in the CEO version towards the end of the year. A second machine will follow a few weeks later. The NEO models are expected to be added to the fleet in the third quarter of next year. “We plan to use an A330ceo for the training of cockpit and cabin personnel at the end of the year. It is planned to use a second A2022ceo for Condor at the beginning of 330. The background is the same: the crews have to be trained. After all, we have a tight schedule, because the new A330neo are expected for autumn 2022 ”, a Condor spokeswoman told CH-Aviation.
Numerous Condor Boeing 767s are leased. In view of the meanwhile national age and the decision that has already been made that the A330-900 will be reloaded, the contracts have not been extended. Two A330s in the “old” version are to serve as temporary replacements. Condor does not want to provide any further information on the origin of the two Airbus A330-200s. CH-Aviation.com reports, however, that there will be two former Etihad Airways planes that are currently in Long Time Storage in Teruel. The machines are owned by Altavair.
