Germany’s Condor Airlines is on the verge of reappearing in Canadian airspace.
The carrier — which normally offers seasonal service between several points in this country and Frankfurt — is preparing a return following a 2020 absence resulting from the Covid pandemic.
“We are starting service to Frankfurt (from Toronto) on Tuesday, Sept. 7 and will operate until Nov. 6, 2021. Flights from Toronto will operate on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday and Halifax departures will be on Monday and Thursday (and run from Sept. 9 to Nov. 4). We will operate our first flight from Toronto on Sept. 7 to mark the change in international travel restrictions to Canada. Due to COVID and given our seasonal service we have not flown to/from Canada since 2019,” said Judi Pym, Condor’s Canadian sales manager.
“We plan to return to Canada in May 2022 with seasonal service from Toronto, Halifax, Calgary, Vancouver and Whitehorse to Frankfurt.”
Earlier Wednesday, Pym said during a Condor webinar that Condor’s network reaches different points in Eastern Europe, including Prague and Sofia.
Long-haul flights use B767-300ER planes. Business, Premium and Economy seating is available.
Condor works with different airlines, including WestJet and Air North, the latter of which is based in Whitehorse. The arrangements with different carriers enable it to offer around 250 destinations.
Passengers can choose from different cuisines, and vegan and vegetarian options are available.
Pym noted that rail-and-fly options that enable passengers to continue their travel on Germany’s extensive rail system after arriving in Frankfurt are available.
She also reported that an agent promotion will soon be offered by Condor that will provide multiple ways to enter. “We will be offering monthly prizes, as well as a grand prize,” she said.
