In summer 2016, the leisure airline Condor will add its 14th North American destination to the flight programme: from the 27th of June, 2016, two weekly nonstop flights will depart for Austin, Texas. Departing from Frankfurt, Condor will offer this new destination on Mondays and Thursdays with a Boeing 767-300 in a three-class configuration. Flights can be booked now on all channels.
Austin, the capital of the second largest state in the USA, is the ideal starting point for exploring breath-taking landscapes. Images of nature vary from coastal areas strewn with lagoons to the expansive prairies and mighty sandstone canyons of the interior. With its cowboys and raw, wide open spaces, Texas in many ways fits the image of America that attracts so many Europeans. But the city of Austin itself, with its picturesque landscapes on the Colorado River, is also worth exploring.
“The addition of a ninth destination in the USA next summer clearly shows how important the American market is to Condor. Our programme is now just as diverse as the country itself and it reflects all the facets of the North American continent. Austin, Texas is an extremely popular tourist destination and Condor will be the first airline to offer nonstop flights here from the European continent”, explains Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor Flugdienst GmbH.
“I am pleased to welcome Condor to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport next summer with a new nonstop to Frankfurt, Germany. New options for air service bring new business, jobs and tourism to Austin,” said Austin Mayor Steve Adler. “Recently the airport opened a bigger, better U.S. Customs area and a bright airy new security checkpoint area. And we are continuing to facilitate growth with a terminal expansion in the works.”
Next summer Austin will be added to Condor’s existing North America programme, which already includes Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Las Vegas (LAS), Portland/Oregon (PDX), Providence/Rhode Island (PVD), Minneapolis/Minnesota (MSP), Seattle (SEA), Anchorage (ANC), Calgary (YYC), Fairbanks (FAI), Halifax (YHZ), Toronto (YYZ), Vancouver (YVR) and Whitehorse (YXY). Thomas Cook Airlines UK also currently offers the following US destinations: Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS) and New York (JFK), with Boston (BOS) and Los Angeles (LAX) starting in summer 2016.
Affordable flights to Austin with one-way all-inclusive fares starting at EUR 349.99 in Economy Class, EUR 499.99 Euro in Premium Class and EUR 799.99 in Business Class can be booked online here. Reservations can also be made at a travel agency or by calling 01806/767767 (EUR 0.20/call from German landline networks, max. EUR 0.60/call on mobile networks).

The Thomas Cook Group and Brand USA, the marketing organisation for destinations in the United States, work closely together to advertise the USA as a travel destination for European guests and to announce Thomas Cook Airlines flight routes to the USA from Germany and Great Britain. A joint multimedia advertising campaign is currently underway in Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Austria and Switzerland.
