New Condor A330neo touches down at Halifax Stanfield International Airport

Halifax Stanfield International Airport Press Release | July 5, 2024

Estimated reading time 3 minutes, 42 seconds.

Just in time for the peak summer travel season, Condor Airlines’ new A330neo, sporting Condor’s eye-catching, striped branding, arrives at Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ).

Condor will offer non-stop flights to its Frankfurt hub four times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), with easy connections to 100-plus destinations throughout Europe and beyond.

The A330neo will replace the previous generation of Boeing 767 aircraft and will significantly reduce Condor’s operating costs and offer increased passenger and cargo capacity into the Nova Scotia region.

The A330neo is the new version of the popular A330 widebody. Incorporating the latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, new wings and aerodynamic innovations, the aircraft reduces Condor’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 20 percent.

The A330neo consumes just half a gallon of fuel, per passenger, per 62 miles flown – well below the industry average. It is the first aircraft in the world already certified for the regulatory reduction in CO2 emissions, which will be required by 2028, and that subsequently will reduce travellers’ environmental footprint.

The A330neo supports state-of-the-art flight and navigation systems tailored to Condor’s exacting requirements, resulting in more noise- and CO2-efficient approach and departure procedures, even at particularly high-altitude airports, reducing noise pollution by up to 60 percent.

“We are thrilled to bring our new, efficient, environmentally friendly A330neo to the beautiful city of Halifax and the broader province of Nova Scotia,” said Mikko Turtiainen, director of sales, The Americas.

“This next-generation aircraft brings increased passenger and cargo capacity to the region and with our just announced codeshare agreement with WestJet provides seamless connectivity throughout Canada and opens up even more options for Canadians travelling to Europe this summer.”

The introduction of this new aircraft strengthens a long-standing partnership between Condor and Halifax Stanfield International Airport that spans two decades.

“We are delighted to see Condor’s stripes gracing the skies over Halifax Stanfield four times a week this summer,” said Marie Manning, vice-president, Business Development, and chief commercial officer, Halifax International Airport Authority.

“The expanded passenger and cargo capacity enabled by the A330neo will help address the strong demand we are seeing for leisure and business activities between Halifax and Europe this summer. Thank you, Condor, for your continued investment in the growth of our region.”

Along with Halifax, this summer Condor will operate from a total of 18 North American cities to Frankfurt,  including five in Canada: Toronto (YYZ), Vancouver (YVR), Calgary (YYC) and Edmonton (YEG).
