The German holiday airline Condor has announced the launch of a non-stop connection between Frankfurt am Main and Edmonton in Canada for May 2023. The route is to be served by Boeing 767s on Tuesday and Friday traffic days.
The carrier had already planned this route before the corona pandemic, but it has not yet been included. That is set to change in May 2023, when Boeing 767s will fly between the two cities twice a week. "With the additional long-haul destination, we are offering our guests an even larger selection of direct connections on vacation and are strengthening our presence in North America," says Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor. "Many other destinations in Canada can also be reached via our cooperation partner Westjet."
With the inclusion of the Canadian city of Edmonton, Condor's Canada offer has expanded to a total of five destinations: in addition to Edmonton, Germany's most popular holiday airline also flies to Toronto, Vancouver, Whitehorse and Halifax.
“We are pleased to welcome Condor to YEG and to be able to offer guests a new non-stop connection to Frankfurt. The connection to international hubs is an important step in promoting the economy. The new connection supports both business and tourism travel and also offers Canadians and Europeans direct access to the cargo business. We look forward to working with our partners in the region and Condor to bring more businesses, travelers, friends and families together,” said Myron Keehn, vice president, air service and business development, Edmonton International Airport.
