Condor becomes first airline to fly to Burma from Europe
Condor’s Frankfurt to Rangoon
Condor launched two new long haul routes on 6 November; both with 270-seat 767-300ER aircraft. The German Thomas Cook Group leisure airline then launched a weekly service from its Frankfurt (FRA) home base to Rangoon (RGN), becoming the first and only carrier to serve Burma/Myanmar non-stop from Europe. On the return sector, flights operate via Phuket in Thailand. The airline also launched its second route to Punta Cana (PUJ) in the Dominican Republic after its flights from Frankfurt when the airline began operating once a week from Austria’s capital Vienna (VIE).
