Condor commenced weekly (Mondays) flights from its biggest base in terms of weekly seats at Frankfurt to Nassau on 6 November. Cutting the ribbon in Germany were: Derya Oergen Meltem, Flight Attendant, Condor; Jens Boyd, Director Long-Haul & Revenue Management, Thomas Cook Group Airlines; Claudia Majunke, Bahamas Tourism Marketing; and Manfried Hartmann, SVP Sales & Customer Relations, Fraport.
Festivities were also held down route, with the first passengers on the Frankfurt service welcomed in the Bahamas by VIPs and officials. Local music and costume was the order of the day to herald the first arrivals.
- Condor, the German leisure airline, has commenced four more long-haul routes from three of its German bases this week. Although all of these new sectors were over 7,000 kilometres in length, the longest was the Düsseldorf to Cancún service at 8,438 kilometres, while the shortest city pair was the route from the same German hub to Punta Cana (PUJ), at a mere 7,376 kilometres. The average sector length of the four new routes was 7,742 kilometres. Only one of the four long-haul operations faces any direct competition, with Eurowings providing a twice-weekly service on the flight to the Dominican Republic destination. The airline’s new routes from Düsseldorf represent a return of long-haul services from the airport for the first time in 14 years.
