Condor launched Düsseldorf – Varadero on 6 November.

Operating twice-weekly year-round using 245-seat B767-300ERs, Condor is the latest in a string of airlines to serve the Cuban airport from Düsseldorf.

It was operated by airberlin until September 2017, with Eurowings serving it from November 2017 to March 2020, OAG data indicates.

Condor is now the sole operator on the 7,922-kilometre link to Cuba.

In 2019, Düsseldorf – Varadero had 85,612 seats, or 67% of the German airport’s total seats to/from Cuba.  The rest of the seats were to/from Havana and Santa Clara.

In that year, Germany – Cuba had 355,000 seats, with Dusseldorf having a one-third share.  Condor was the top airline at country level.
