Condor Airlines Takes Off from Portland This Summer with Non-Stop Frankfurt Flight and Connections to 100 Destinations in Europe and Beyond

Starting May 13 Oregonians Have A More Affordable Option to Europe with Flights Three Times A Week

Frankfurt, May 02, 2022 - Condor Airlines, Germany's popular, leisure airline, who has been serving the North American market since the 1970’s with seasonal summer service, has announced a non-stop Frankfurt route from Portland (PDX), operating three times per week on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday beginning on May 13. Flight #DE2091 will depart Portland (PDX) at 7:00 p.m. and arrive in Frankfurt (FRA) at 2:35 p.m. (+1 day).  Return flight #DE2090 departs Frankfurt at 3:15 p.m. and arrives in Portland (PDX) at 5:10 p.m.  All flights to and from Frankfurt are operated on Boeing 767-300 equipment and feature three classes of service (Economy, Premium and Business).

From its Frankfurt hub, Condor offers connecting service to more than 100 destinations throughout Europe via Condor and a network of airline and rail partners including Lufthansa, SAS, Aegean Airlines and more.  Easy connections in Frankfurt can be made to such popular European vacation destinations as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Barcelona, Athens and Florence.  In addition, U.S. travelers can take advantage of Condor’s interline partners JetBlue and Alaska Airlines and their feeder flights to Condor’s gateway markets.

"Due to the pandemic, travel to Europe from the U.S. was only accessible to a limited extent for the past two summers. As a result, we are seeing an increasing amount of pent-up demand from Americans who are now eager to visit Europe," said Mathias Friess, Condor area manager, North America. “We are pleased to return to Portland and provide travelers from the region with a more affordable way to get to Europe this summer.  We also are thrilled to do our part in bringing more Germans to Oregon and helping to restore Portland and the state’s tourism economy following the past two years.”

In addition to a value-oriented Economy class product, Condor also offers Business Class and Premium Economy classes of service. As more leisure travelers are looking to splurge on their vacation after not traveling for so long, premium classes with fares that are up to 50 percent less than the legacy airlines are sure to be popular with Oregonians.  Condor’s Business Class features lie-flat seats, a personal in-seat, premium touch-screen entertainment system, power ports at every seat and exquisite and delicious premium menus with complimentary non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. In addition, special menus for children as well as vegetarian, vegan and lactose or gluten-free meals are available.  Business Class passengers also have access to priority check-in and lounge access. Premium Class features seats with added legroom, leg rests and adjustable headrests, a premium in-flight, in-seat entertainment system with an extended program, USB ports at every seat, premium meals and complimentary beverages.

“We’re excited to have Condor return to PDX,” said Port of Portland Air Service Director David Zielke. “Typically, our region sees travel to Europe double in the summer. This flight gives our region’s travelers a convenient nonstop option to get to the heart of Germany.”

About Condor
As Germany's most popular leisure airline, Condor has been taking its guests to the world's most beautiful holiday destinations for more than 65 years. Every year, more than nine million guests fly with Condor from the nine largest airports in Germany, from Zurich in Switzerland and Vienna in Austria to around 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and North America. Condor operates a fleet of over 50 aircraft, which are maintained by the company's own maintenance operation, Condor Technik GmbH, according to the highest safety standards at the Frankfurt and Dusseldorf locations. In spring 2022, Germany's most popular vacation carrier unveiled its new brand identity: Condor is vacation and vacation is stripes. Inspired by parasols, bath towels and beach chairs, Condor now wears stripes in five colours. This clearly shows the development from a vacation airline to a unique and unmistakable vacation brand. The new design was unveiled with the first A330neo, which will take off for Condor from fall 2022. As the German launch customer, Condor will then be flying 16 A330neo long-haul aircraft. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and maximum efficiency, the latest-generation 2-liter aircraft is the European front-runner with 2.1 litres per passenger per 100 kilometres and maximum customer comfort.
