Corendon Airlines (XC, Istanbul Sabiha Gökcen) has wet-leased a single A330-300 from Malta's Airhub Airlines (AH, Malta Int'l), initially for dense European short-haul routes out of Antalya but eventually also for long-haul intercontinental services.

9H-LEON (msn 769) was ferried from Madrid Barajas to Antalya on May 25, 2022, and began operating for the Turkish leisure specialist on May 28. It is currently deployed on various routes to Germany. It is the first widebody aircraft operating for Corendon Airlines and also the first unit equipped with business class seats. The long-term ACMI contract will continue for 18 months, i.e. through the end of November 2023.

"With this aircraft, we will be taking the first steps of Comfort Class, which is our service concept based on wider and much more comfortable seats, contrary to the general practice on the European market. Although short rotations are planned for the current summer season, we believe that serving our passengers with this aircraft on our long-haul flights planned for the winter season will take us to the next level," Commercial Director Mine Aslan said.

The ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows that Corendon Airlines' narrowbody fleet comprises fourteen B737-800s and one B737-8. The airline also wet-leases three B737-800s, five A320-200s, and one A321-200. Sister carriers Corendon Dutch Airlines and Corendon Airlines Europe operate three and twelve B737s, respectively. The Maltese airline also wet leases seven B737-800s and four A320-200s.

The ch-aviation schedules module shows that the three airlines currently focus on serving Turkey and other destinations in the Mediterranean, Northern Africa, and the Canary Islands. The longest scheduled routes are from Amsterdam Schiphol to Sal Amilcar Cabral Int'l (operated by Corendon Dutch Airlines), from Antalya to Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev (Corendon Airlines), and from Copenhagen Kastrup to Tenerife Sur/Las Palmas (Corendon Airlines Europe).
