Flying with Condor Airlines is now even more comfortable: The leisure airline’s first Boeing 767-300 with a completely refurbished cabin was integrated in flight operations yesterday. The aircraft returned to Germany this week after spending several weeks of refurbishing a completely new cabin.The Boeing 767-300, registration D-ABUB, has 18 seats in the new Business Class, 35 in Premium Economy Class and 206 in Economy Class. Passengers on yesterday’s Condor flight DE3326 from Frankfurt to the Maldives departing at 8:20 pm were the first to enjoy the delights of the new cabin.
“The project team has achieved a fabulous result. Condor Airlines is a quality airline, and the new cabin clearly indicates that we invest in our passenger’s well-being,” explains Ralf Teckentrup, Chairman of the Management Board at Condor. “The new cabin also shows how the airlines in the Thomas Cook Group are growing together. The cabin design was created in co-operation with the airline’s experts in Belgium, Scandinavia and the UK, and is the foundation for future conversions by the group. The airline displays the Sunny Heart, the new Thomas Cook Group logo, on the tail unit, which unites the exterior appearance of the Group Airlines and accompanies our passengers for their entire journey.”
The entire cabin shines in a modern, fresh design. One particular highlight of the new cabin is our all-new Condor Business Class, where the comfortable, fully-automatic reclining seats adjust electronically, and with a tilt angle of 170 degrees offer passengers a range of positions for relaxing. The extensive entertainment system on demand is operated by touch screen on the modern 15.4” seat monitors. The cabin looks brighter and fresher in the all-new Condor Business Class design. In addition to the innovative seats, a new bluegrey carpet that is part of a group-wide cabin design and new wall cladding, a new logo has also been designed for Business Class. As of now, Condor Business Class is identified by a silver logo.
Premium Economy seats have headrests with height and lateral adjustment, as well as footrests. They have a reinforced backrest that offers additional comfort – further enhanced by the backrest tilt, which has been doubled by 23.3 cm. The distance between the seat rows is still about 15 cm more than in Economy Class.And due to the narrower backrest of the new seats in Premium Economy and Economy Class, passengers can “feel” they have more room. The lavatories have also been completely modernised.
Passengers in Premium Economy Class have free access to all the content of the In-flight Entertainment program, while in Economy Class there is a standard offer that is similar to the current entertainment program. The choice includes a film and a TV series. For just €7, Economy Class passengers can gain an access code from the crew so they can enjoy the delights of the exciting and extensive programs. As soon Press releaseas the entire fleet has been refurbished, it will be possible to book extended access to the In-flight Entertainment program in advance via the Internet.The second aircraft to be converted is a Boeing 767-300 with 30 seats in Business Class, which will be available for operation at the end of November. This marks the beginning of the Split Fleet with different cabin configurations within the fleet.
The aircraft with 30 Business Class seats will then be used on routes with a greater demand for Business Class, such as the Seychelles, Mauritius and the Maldives.
