Aircraft cabins of Condor’s long-haul fleet to undergo general refurbishment
Condor Flugdienst GmbH is to equip its long-haul fleet with new cabins. The aircraft seats in all classes are being replaced with modern ones. Throughout the entire aircraft, an entertainment program on demand will be available enabling each passenger to select the on-board entertainment program on a personal screen. In connection with the cabin refurbishment, the Condor Comfort Class is to be renamed Business Class and bringing it in line with the term generally used in the market and well known to customers. The new Condor Business Class offers its passengers the well-known excellent service and fully automated, comfortable angled-lie-flat seats capable of inclining to an angle of 170 degrees with a bed length of 1.80m providing ample space for relaxed travelling. Integrated USB and power connections will be available for personal electronic devices.
Additionally, fleet strategy is also being optimized: Condor will be operating with two different cabin configurations meaning that three of its twelve aircraft will be able to offer 30 Business Class seats. These aircraft will then be deployed increasingly on routes with high Business Class demand such as those to the Maldives, the Seychelles, and Mauritius. The remaining nine aircraft will continue to offer 18 seats in their new Business Class to Las Vegas, Seattle, Vancouver and other Condor destinations. The refurbishment is to commence in stages during scheduled layover periods in winter 2013/14: The first aircraft with the new cabin is planned to start scheduled operation as from autumn 2013. By summer 2014, the refurbishment of the entire fleet is expected to be completed.
