German leisure carrier Condor has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft, marking another step in the airline’s fleet modernization program. The new aircraft was leased from Avolon and features a striking red version of the carrier’s livery.

This delivery is part of Condor’s ongoing efforts to update its fleet, which already includes the A330neo for long-haul flights. The airline retired its aging Boeing 767 fleet earlier this year and plans to phase out the 757 in 2025.

The carrier has a long history with the A320 family, having operated these aircraft on its European routes for over two decades. The A320neo offers Condor improved efficiency and passenger comfort compared to previous generation models, according to Airbus.

The new A320neo is powered by Pratt & Whitney engines and features Airbus’ Airspace cabin design in a 180-seat configuration. Per Aeroroutes, the carrier has scheduled initial routes for the new aircraft starting next month.

Condor also plans to receive the larger A321neo, which it expects to receive in the coming months. The airline has 13 A320neo and 28 A321neo aircraft on order.
