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).

    Over the last few days we have received numerous comments about the use of a religious building in Myanmar to mark the start of flights between Frankfurt and Rangoon in 2012. For the record, the airline in question, Condor, arranged the use of the cake and not We did however use the picture of the cake to accompany the news story from the route launch in November 2012. Given the obvious feelings raised by the use of this image, we have removed all references to the picture from our website. It should perhaps be noted that the service no longer operates. Editor –
