Frankfurt am Main, 23 March 2020 - Condor brought almost 53,000 guests back to Germany during the last week(16 March-22 March 2020). The total of 275 flights from the Caribbean, Morocco, Egypt, but also the USA, South Africa and Spain were partly regular return flights in the flight schedule, which Condor had not yet adjusted despite the Corona crisis, and a large number of special flights for tour operators and as part of the Federal Foreign Office Airlift. Condor is also working at full speed on further special flights for this week, which are continuously updated in the return flight schedule on www.condor.com/aktuelle-infos.
"The largest return flight in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany is also afeat of strengthfor Condor. All aircraft are in the air to bring as many guests home as possible as quickly as possible. At this point I would like to pay a big compliment and my greatest respect to the German Foreign Office, which is coordinating this return flight, the tour operators - and of course to the Condor teams on the ground and in the air," says Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor. "We will also be launching many special flights this week and will maintain our own regular replacement flight schedule with the destinations Seattle, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Jerez de la Frontera, which will ensure basic infrastructural services".
Seattle is connected to more than 30 cities in the USA, such as Los Angeles or San Francisco, via the long-standing Condor partner airline Alaska Airlines, so that guests can start their journey home to Germany without any complications and US Americans who urgently need to get home from Europe can also fly on via Seattle.
Guests who are still abroad are asked to register at the German Foreign Office or at www.condor.com/fly-home. For all guests with a scheduled departure within the next four weeks, Condor offers, among other things, a free rebooking of their ticket to any destination in the route network of Condor and its partner airlines at a time of their choice. If you do not want to commit to a date yet, you do not have to. This also applies to passengers with tickets to countries whose entry restrictions have not been extended.
Out of consideration for particularly urgent requests from guests abroad, we still ask that you only contact customer service if the original flight would have taken place within the next 72 hours, or if the respective guest is still abroad.
