German airline selects Rolls-Royce powered aircraft in fleet upgrade

German airline Condor Flugdienst GmbH has selected 16 Airbus A330neo aircraft, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines as it upgrades its fleet for maximum efficiency and sustainability.

The airline will operate the aircraft on its long-haul network to the Americas, Africa and the Caribbean when they are delivered to its base starting from Autumn 2022.

Jacqui Sutton, Chief Customer Officer, Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace, said: “We are delighted that Condor has chosen the A330neo, powered by Trent 7000 engines, as it modernises its long-haul fleet.

“With 14 per cent fuel burn improvement per seat compared to its predecessor, the highest bypass ratio of any Trent engine and a 99.9% dispatch rate, the Trent 7000 will support the airline’s ambitions to deliver greater efficiency and reliability as it moves towards its sustainability targets.”

Ralf Teckentrup, CEO Condor, said: “We are proud to be the German launch customer for the A330neo. Thanks to the latest technology and maximum efficiency of the aircraft and its engines, we will thus be taking off with our ‘2-litre aircraft’ from autumn 2022 with a fuel consumption of 2.1 litres per passenger per 100 kilometres.

“With our modern long-haul fleet, we will inseparably combine sustainability and holidays with Condor in future. We are looking forward to our new aircraft and to a successful cooperation with Airbus and Rolls Royce as strong partners at our side.”
