Condor Airlines Takes Off from Edmonton

Condor Airlines inaugurated a new non-stop Frankfurt route from Edmonton International Airport (YEG), operating twice-weekly (Tuesday and Friday) on May 26.

All flights to and from Edmonton are operated on Boeing 767-300 equipment this summer and feature three classes of service (Economy, Premium and Business). This is Condor’s fifth gateway in Canada, joining Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, and Whitehorse.

Mikko Turtiainen, Director of Sales, The Americas, said: “We are excited that Edmonton is our newest Canadian gateway and the latest addition to Condor’s growing North American route system.”

Turtiainen continued: “It has been a true pleasure to partner with Edmonton International Airport to bring Condor’s service to Alberta. In the past, travellers from this region of Canada would have to make multiple connections to get to their final European destination and often spend more doing so. We are pleased to introduce an affordable and convenient alternative. As Germany’s number one leisure airline, Condor is also looking forward to introducing German vacationers to this most spectacular province of Canada.”

In addition to a value-oriented Economy class product, Condor also offers Business Class and Premium Economy classes of service.

As more leisure travellers are looking to splurge on their vacation after not travelling for so long, premium classes with fares that are up to 50% less than the legacy airlines are sure to be popular with vacationers from Edmonton.

Condor’s Business Class features lie-flat seats, a personal in-seat, premium touch-screen entertainment system, power ports at every seat and exquisite and delicious premium menus with complimentary non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. In addition, special menus for children as well as vegetarian, vegan and lactose or gluten-free meals are available.

Business Class passengers also have access to priority check-in and lounge access. Premium Class features seats with added legroom, leg rests and adjustable headrests, a premium in-flight, in-seat entertainment system with an extended program, USB ports at every seat, premium meals, and complimentary beverages.
