Condor Launches Flights To Miami


Condor has added service between Frankfurt and Miami, with three times weekly service year round across the pond.

The route which is operated by their new A330neos, goes up against Lufthansa which operates a single daily flight between the two destinations with a Boeing 747-8i. This latest addition is part of Condor’s strategy to serve up to 18 destinations across North America.

“From today, it’s “Hello Sunshine State” again: just in time for the start of the Easter vacations in Hesse, flight DE2044 took off from Frankfurt today at around 1:35 p.m. bound for Miami in the US state of Florida. On board the A330neo with the registration D-ANRI were more than 300 guests on the first flight since the resumption. In the summer timetable, Condor will be flying three times a week from Frankfurt to Miami from May – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.”

Peter Gerber, CEO of Condor said, “It is with great pleasure that we introduce Condor and our new A330neo product into the Sunshine State. The demand for our new non-stop out of MIA into the heart of Europe has been so strong that we are pleased to extend what was originally to be a seasonal route into a year-round operation. This provides both European-bound American travelers as well as German vacationers coming to South Florida with an affordable and convenient year-round flight that will also have a positive impact on the local Miami economy.”

Guests flying on Condor’s A330neos now have access to more modern seating. For instance, its Business Class cabin has been significantly improved over its previous products, offering 1-2-1 lie-flat seating with large entertainment screens, 78 inch long beds, power outlets, and more. While it’s nothing fancy compared to some of the products offered on mainline carriers, it’s a step above given that Condor is a leisure brand.

They also appear to be copying other brands, offering larger seats in the very front row called “Prime Seats”. The added space allows for two guests to dine together, as well as have access to in-flight amenities such as a premium travel kit, inflight pajamas, and a deluxe snack basket.
