Since 1956, Condor Airlines has been flying its guests to the most beautiful destinations in the world. On an annual basis, more than seven million passengers fly with Condor to about 80 destinations in Europe, America, Africa and Asia. Condor Airlines is excited to announce its 2018 flight schedule with twice-weekly flights operating on Thursdays and Sundays from May 17, 2018, through September 30, 2018, from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) to Frankfurt International Airport (FRA).
“I’m thrilled that Condor Airlines will resume its transatlantic, non-stop flights in May 2018,” says Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “These non-stop flights to Frankfurt will continue to open gateways to new international markets and create jobs and new opportunities.”
Condor provides a superior passenger experience onboard its 259-seat Boeing 767-300ER. Service is offered in three classes: business, premium and economy. In each of its classes of service, Condor provides complimentary checked baggage, beverages, meals, and in-flight entertainment. Business Class passengers have access to priority check-in and business class lounges at most airports, as well as reclining seats and a five-course meal onboard the flight. Premium Class features added legroom, leg rests, and adjustable headrests plus premium meals and more onboard the flight.
“Our Condor flights still are the only nonstop service from New Orleans to Germany and the bookings so far clearly showed that New Orleanians love our service,” says Jens Boyd, Director of Long Haul & Revenue Management at Condor. “With our partner carriers we provide seamless connections to cities like Prague, Venice, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Barcelona and, in total, more than one hundred destinations in Europe.” Condor operates from a total of 16 gateways in North America.
