Condor expands entertainment program with ARD Plus on board

August 10, 2023 – Behind the scenes: Condor and ARD Plus give exciting insights into the everyday life of flight attendants and the tasks in the technical department. The docu-series "mittendrin-Flughafen Frankfurt" provides an insight into a world that passengers do not encounter directly during their journey. Most recently, Condor was featured in the series with a landing gear change on a Boeing 767 as well as accompanying a crew on their Punta Cana turnaround. Condor is also featured in the new season with behind-the-scenes glimpses of the operation of the factory-new long-haul fleet, consisting of A330neo aircraft. Travel with Condor can be booked with all German tour operators and at travel agencies, and flight tickets are available as usual at and by phone.

"The films about Condor are very popular with our viewers," says Andreas Graf, hr journalist and regular contributor to the docu-series "mittendrin-Flughafen Frankfurt". "With 3.8 million clicks on YouTube and half a million views in the ARD media library, the four episodes featuring Condor are among the most successful in the Hessischer Rundfunk docu-series. We are very proud of this successful collaboration. Further episodes with Condor for "Mittendrin" are planned. Because Condor belongs to Hesse!"

The four Condor episodes are now available to guests on almost all flights and complement the wide range of free in-flight entertainment.

Crime fans can also look forward to further episodes of "Tatort" or "WAPO Duisburg" from the ARD Plus program. For kids, new shows from "Wissen macht Ah" and "Die Maus" are also on board, expanding the previous selection of ARD Plus content in the in-flight program at Condor.

ARD Plus offers a wide selection of ARD's most popular TV movies, series, shows, documentaries and children's programs that are no longer available in the ARD Mediathek, including the largest Tatort archive.
