Condor Airlines Spreads Its Wings Across The U.S.

Condor, part of Thomas Cook Group Airlines, and the third largest airline in Germany, announces the largest U.S. expansion in its 60-year history. The airline will expand its route network this summer with new, non-stop service from San Diego, Pittsburgh and New Orleans to Frankfurt and beyond. It will also add new, non-stop service to Munich from existing gateways in Seattle and Las Vegas. (See below flight schedule.) With a total of 11 gateways, Condor is the only discount carrier operating in the U.S. with full-service, inclusive fares in three classes of service. All the new routes will use Boeing 767-300 aircraft.

For bookings made from February 27 through March 5 for travel through the summer, the leisure airline offers special fares for flights from the U.S. to Europe. For example, flights from New Orleans to Frankfurt start as low as $249.99* (one-way) in economy, $499.99* (one-way) in premium and $799.99* (one-way) in business class. After March 5, flights from Pittsburgh to Frankfurt for example start as low as $329.99 (one-way) in economy, $429.99 (one-way) in premium and $799.99 (one-way) in business class. Flights from Las Vegas to Munich start as low as $399.99 (one-way) in economy, $669.99 (one-way) in premium and $1,339.99 (one-way) in business class. (See below fare chart for more sample summer fares).

This is the first time Condor has flown from San Diego, Pittsburgh and New Orleans. The carrier currently serves the U.S. from: Anchorage, Austin, Baltimore, Fairbanks, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Portland, and Seattle. Thomas Cook Group Airlines has seen a surge in flights to and from North America. Passenger numbers from North America to Europe have more than doubled in the last three years, with nine newly introduced routes within this period. More than one million passengers used the airlines’ services via the North Atlantic in 2016.

“This is an exciting time for Condor as we continue to expand our route network in the important trans-Atlantic market,“ said Christoph Debus, CEO Thomas Cook Group Airlines. “As demand for travel to Europe from the U.S. increases, we are pleased to bring Condor’s award-winning, three-class service at a value-oriented price to a growing list of under-served U.S. airports.”

The Condor route network includes more than 75 destinations with easy connections to more than 230 global destinations through partnerships with other carriers. In the U.S. partners such as Alaska Airlines, JetBlue and Sun Country provide easy access to Condor’s long-haul flights from many cities across the country, while the extensive partner network in Frankfurt and Munich, consisting of Lufthansa, Croatia Airlines, Swiss and many more, connects passengers with flights throughout Europe.

All Condor passengers receive complimentary checked baggage, complimentary beverages and meals and complimentary in-flight entertainment. Condor’s business class features reclining seats (170 degrees), a personal in-seat, premium touch-screen (15 inches) entertainment system, power and USB ports at every seat and gourmet, five-course meals with complimentary wine, beer and cocktails and an in-flight, well-being amenity kit. Business class passengers also have access to priority check-in and business class lounges at most airports. Premium class features seats with added legroom, leg rests and adjustable headrests, a premium in-flight, in-seat entertainment system with an extended program, USB ports at every seat, premium meals and complimentary beverages and an in-flight, well-being amenity kit. Condor passengers can also earn and redeem miles in the Star Alliance Miles and More frequent flier program.
