Condor Airlines, part of Thomas Cook Group Airlines, and the third largest airline in Germany, announced the largest U.S. expansion in its 60-year history. The airline will expand its route network this summer with new, non-stop service from San Diego, Pittsburgh and New Orleans to Frankfurt and beyond. It will also add new, non-stop service to Munich from existing gateways in Seattle and Las Vegas. With a total of 11 gateways, Condor is the only discount carrier operating in the U.S. with full-service, inclusive fares in three classes of service. All the new routes will use Boeing 767-300 aircraft.
