A wildlife-inspired cake was used to send-off the first Condor weekly flight from Vienna Airport to Mombasa on 5 November. The route becomes the third long-haul service in three years that the carrier has introduced from the Austrian capital, joining Punta Cana (launched November 2011) and Varadero (launched November 2012).
- Condor has begun seasonal connections from Vienna (VIE) to the Kenyan resort destination of Mombasa (MBA) on 5 November. The service will be operated weekly (Tuesdays) with the carrier’s 767-300s. In addition, Condor has also inaugurated two more long-haul services from Munich (MUC) , following on from the five route launches last week at the Bavarian hub, this time starting weekly 767-300 operations to Mauritius (MRU) and Varadero (VRA) in Cuba on 5 November (both on Tuesdays). None of Condor’s four new routes launched this week faces any direct competition.
Celebrating the occasion of Condor’s launch of seven new long-haul services from Munich with cake and the cutting of a symbolic ribbon at the departure gate just prior to take-off were: Achim Lameyer (left), Head of Passenger Sales, Condor; and Dr Michael Kerkloh (right), the president and CEO of FMG, the Munich Airport operating company.
