Condor Airlines is increasing its flights between the U.S. and Germany with plans to add 10 nonstop flights by 2017 and expand service to 11 total U.S. destinations.
The German leisure airline announced it will add transatlantic flights to New Orleans and San Diego next summer. Other highlights include year-round nonstop flights from Seattle to Condor's hub in Frankfurt later this year and twice weekly flights from Las Vegas to Munich beginning May 2017.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority's Senior Vice President of Marketing Cathy Tull said, "Condor’s new route will offer additional convenience and flexibility for international travelers."
Currently, Condor flies from Las Vegas to Frankfurt five times a week.
"Germany is our greatest source of international visitation from continental Europe, with more than 200,000 travelers annually," Tull added in a statement. "This new route further reinforces the opportunity for ongoing growth throughout that region."
Starting May 3, 2017, the Frankfurt-based carrier will offer twice-weekly flights from New Orleans to Frankfurt. That service will continue through Oct. 4, 2017.
Twice weekly service from Las Vegas to Munich will also begin May 3, 2017 before wrapping up Oct. 29, 2017.
Beginning May 5, 2017, Condor will begin service between San Diego and Frankfurt with three weekly flights continuing through October 5, 2017.
Finally, twice weekly service from Seattle to Munich will launch July 5, 2017 and end Oct. 29, 2017.
Condor's Group Head of Long Haul Jens Boyd said the new flights will be operated on a Boeing 767-300 equipped with economy, premium and business class seats.
