Seen cutting the cake to mark the start of Condor’s new service from Munich to Barbados and Tobago on 12 November, along with hostesses from Sixt and a Condor stewardess were: Alvin Jemmot, Chairman Barbados Tourism Marketing; Wilken Bellmann, Head of Network Development Long-Haul, Condor; Thomas Kube, Head of Marketing/Merchandising, Munich Airport; and Regine Sixt, Honorary Consul General of Barbados in Germany. Passengers were given traditional South German sweet treats for their journey across the Atlantic to the Caribbean.
- Condor has used the seven days to augment its network from Munich (MUC), commencing flights to Barbados (BGI) which operates via Tobago (TAB) – with the services becoming long-haul destinations #14 and #15 from its second largest base. Operated by the leisure carrier’s 259-seat 767-300 fleet, the flights will be flown weekly (Saturdays). While no other carrier operates this route, Condor’s sister airline Thomas Cook Airlines, also began a new route from Manchester to Tobago over the same weekend, with the German airline beginning its flights on 12 November, while the UK airline’s services started the following day.
