Condor announces Rio de Janeiro as new destination
From today, flights for Winter 2015/16 are available for booking with Condor, Germany’s most popular leisure airline, to dream destinations in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and the Indian Ocean.
One new addition to the programme is Rio de Janeiro (GIG) in Brazil, which will be served by two weekly flights from Frankfurt with Boeing 767-300ER, departing on Mondays and Fridays. Condor is also developing its offer from Munich, with Holguin (HOG) on Cuba a new addition to the current Caribbean programme. Several other flights are being offered in the winter season in addition to those of Mauritius (MRU), Cancun (CUN) in Mexico and Varadero (VRA) on Cuba.
„Next winter there will be two weekly flights to Rio de Janeiro in addition to our current destinations in Brazil of Salvador da Bahia, Recife and Fortaleza. Condor offers flights to a total of over 40 destinations in every corner of Brazil, which are even easier to get to thanks to our partner GOL,“ explains Ralf Teckentrup, Managing Director of Condor. „Rio and the whole of Brazil have become increasingly important as travel destinations for Germany and all Europe thanks to the 2014 World Cup and the upcoming Summer Olympic Games in 2016. The new destination and additional frequencies are possible as the result of further growth in Condor’s long-haul fleet in the form of an additional Boeing 767 for 2015.“
Condor is also setting the flight times for these flights to those to Windhoek (WDH) in Namibia, which will be overnight flights in winter 2015/16. In doing so, the leisure airline is complying with a frequently expressed desire of its customers.
