PARIS AIR SHOW -- Pratt & Whitney, an RTX business, today announced that Condor Flugdienst GmbH ("Condor") has signed an EngineWise Maintenance long-term agreement for their fleet of 41 GTF-powered Airbus A320neo family aircraft, made up of 13 A320neo and 28 A321neo aircraft.
"GTF-powered aircraft will provide an exceptional combination of economic and environmental benefits for our business and passengers," said Björn Walther, chief financial officer at Condor. "EngineWise services will provide the insights we need to optimize the efficiency of fleet and operations, to support our ambition to enable responsible, and at the same time comfortable, travels with significantly reduced carbon emissions, lower fuel consumption and less noise."
Condor has been taking its guests to beautiful holiday destinations for more than 60 years. Every year, more than 9 million guests fly with Condor to around 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and America. Currently flying PW4000-powered Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, Condor and Pratt & Whitney established their relationship more than 60 years ago with the Wasp-powered Convair CV-240 aircraft. In subsequent years the airline operated a full range of Pratt & Whitney-powered aircraft, including the DC-8, 707, 727, 737, 747 and 757.
"Condor will not only benefit from the latest engine technology delivering the greenest, most fuel-efficient engines in service today, but they will also have access to our portfolio of services and solutions to advance the performance and maturity of their fleet," said Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney.
The EngineWise service portfolio provides owners and operators of Pratt & Whitney engines with a variety of aftermarket services to maximize engine performance and fleet availability.
