Port of Seattle welcomes first flight to Munich on Condor Airlines

Condor Airlines’ today celebrated its new nonstop seasonal service to Munich, Germany with the inaugural flight from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

The Port of Seattle Fire Department greeted the Seattle-made Boeing 767 with the traditional water cannon salute as it arrived to Sea-Tac Airport. The new, twice-weekly seasonal service features a 259 seat Boeing 767 with three classes of service – business, premium and economy.

Munich adds to Condor’s service expansion from Sea-Tac, which extended existing Frankfurt service to year-round flights. Sea-Tac has become Condor’s largest U.S. gateway along with Las Vegas. Earlier this year, Condor became a mileage partner with Alaska Airlines, allowing passengers to earn and redeem with Alaska’s Mileage Plan.

Munich is Germany’s third biggest city and 12th largest in the European Union with a regional population close to six million. The Bavarian capital is a business hub, with 90 of the country’s 1,000 largest companies based there, including BMW, Allianz, and Siemens. On the leisure side, Seattle craft beer lovers now get a direct connection to the iconic home of Oktoberfest, which runs from September 17 to October 3.
