Frankfurt,November,06, 2023 –Condor Airlinesannounces that it has entered a bilateral codeshare agreement with longtime partner, Alaska Airlines. Thisallows each of the airlines to place its designator code on the other airline's flights and sell that flight via all GDS distribution channels. With this codeshare agreement in place, Condor is now able to market and sell more than 70 Alaska routes across the U.S.
Alaska earlier this summer began marketing and selling Condor’s non-stop flights to Frankfurt, Germany from 12 U.S. transatlantic gateways including, New York/JFK, Boston, Washington/BWI, Seattle, Portland (Oregon), San Francisco and Los Angeles, with more to be added. With the codeshare, Alaska can now offer its customers additional options for its customers traveling to Europe with Condor’s seamless connectivity from its Frankfurt hub to more than 100 destinations throughout Europe and beyond. Condor will now be able to offer its guests more access to Alaska Airlines established and growing network across the U.S. The codeshare alliance further bolsters Condor’s participation in Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program, where members can earn and redeem miles for Condor flights.
“Condor has been working in close partnership with Alaska Airlines for more than ten years, and now with our new codeshare agreement, we are able to build upon our successful interline agreement, which offered seamless connectivity, ticket and baggage handling services,” saidMikko Turtiainen, Director of Sales, The Americas. “Our new codeshare cooperation with Alaska is taking this seamless connectivity to the next level, where we are now codesharing on numerous Alaska Airlines flights. The codeshare strengthens the Condor network and reach in North America. This gives easier and clearer Condor visibility in the GDS and online booking tools to our travel advisor partners in North America. For example, selling Honolulu to Frankfurt and Frankfurt to Honolulu, with the entire journey and flights booked and ticketed on Condor (DE) codes is a fantastic new offering. The codeshare also truly supports Condor’s winter network, offering Condor connectivity from cities large and small such as Portland, San Francisco, and Boise, through our year-round gateway in Seattle, something that we are truly thrilled to now be able to offer.”
“We continue to bolster our international partner portfolio, giving our guests convenient access to more of the globe. Condor provides a key link with its nonstops fromAlaska’s gateway cities toEuropeand beyond,” said Nat Pieper, Senior Vice President of Fleet, Finance and Alliances at Alaska Airlines. “We look forward to expanding our codeshare with Condor to destinations beyond Frankfurt in the near future.”
