03.07.20 17:08

Germany’s most popular holiday airline is starting the holiday season from Berlin on schedule with nine flights a week to the Canary and Greek Islands and Sardinia

Condor started the holiday season from Berlin-Schönefeld with the first flight to Gran Canaria. This marks the resumption of flights by Germany’s most popular holiday airline from the German capital; it will be operating a total of twelve weekly connections to Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Crete, Kos and Sardinia during the summer season. Flights can now be booked at www.condor.com or at a travel agency.

“We are looking forward to taking off as planned from Berlin-Schönefeld this summer to the most beautiful holiday destinations. Germany’s most popular holiday airline is returning to the capital with an Airbus A320 stationed in Berlin. Our guests will be able to feel comfortable on their trip even during these special times: together with the airports, Condor is implementing a wide range of protective measures,” says Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor.

Prof. Dr. Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH: “Welcome to Berlin! We are pleased that Condor is once again flying from Schönefeld and bringing travellers from the region to popular Greek and Spanish holiday islands this summer. The destinations offered are an important addition to the flight schedule from Berlin. Safe and reliable travel is our top priority. Therefore, in addition to the mandatory mouth and nose protection in the terminal areas, we have implemented numerous measures to make it easier for passengers to comply with the applicable distancing and hygiene regulations.”

Condor flights from Berlin-Schönefeld in summer 2020

  • Canary Islands: Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Tenerife
  • Greece: Crete (Heraklion), Kos, Rhodes, Samos

Protective measures on the flight

As part of a package of measures introduced by the German Aviation Association, airlines and airports are implementing a wide range of preventive protective measures for the entire flight, from entering the terminal through to arrival at the destination: a mask that covers the nose and mouth is also mandatory for guests and cabin crew on board all Condor flights until 31 August 2020. The air quality on board corresponds to that in operating theatres in German hospitals by means of the direction of air flow and the filters installed. Furthermore, in addition to the service, the boarding and disembarkation processes have also been adapted to the special situation so that, in future, smaller groups will board and the number of buses to the aircraft will either be increased or, where possible, boarding at the building will be possible. Moreover, all guests must provide their contact details on an online form before departure, as is normal today for restaurant visits and other events. To avoid waiting times at the airports, all customers are requested to use the convenient online check-in at condor.com. This ensures maximum protection for our customers, even during the journey. Guests are asked to behave considerately and in accordance with the hygiene regulations throughout their journey and to take the entry requirements of the respective destination and the regulations on their return to Germany into consideration.
