Germany’s Condor Flugdienst GmbH is starting twice-weekly nonstop service between Seattle and Frankfurt on June 23, 2011.

Condor will operate the new service with Boeing 767-300ERs configured to offer three-class service. The flights will operate on Mondays and Thursdays from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) to Frankfurt Airport (FRA) in Germany and Condor says its schedule will offer connections to many destinations in Europe either with Condor or one of its airline partners.

“Condor is delighted to offer non-stop service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. As a partner of Alaska Airlines, Condor will provide many connections options from the Pacific Northwest as well as the West Coast,” says Janet Gorecki-Mackanin, Condor’s sales and marketing manager, North America.

Germany's Condor Flugdienst GmbH (usually known just as Condor) operates a fleet that includes nine 270-seat Boeing 767-300ERs, 13 252-seat Boeing 757-300s and 12 174-seat Airbus A320s. The carrier is a subsidiary of travel company Thomas Cook Group Plc

“The addition of this service is another testament to the continuing success of international carriers in our region. The business and leisure passenger will benefit from yet another choice out of Sea-Tac airport,” says Mark Reis, managing director of Sea-Tac Airport.

Condor’s long-haul fleet consists of Boeing 767-300ER featuring blended winglets to reduce fuel consumption and noise and CO2 emissions. The aircraft are configured with 18 Comfort Class, 35 Premium Economy class and 217 Economy seats. Comfort Class seats have a seat pitch of 49 inches (125 cm) and seats in the Premium Economy cabin have a seat pitch of 37 inches (94cm). Flights on Condor are eligible for mileage accrual in the Lufthansa Miles and More Program, in which Condor participates.

Fares start at $359 each way (based on round-trip purchase and not including additional taxes, fees or fuel surcharge) and are available for immediate booking at or at any travel agency.

Condor Flugdienst GmbH was established in 1956 and operates to almost 70 destinations worldwide. Condor’s fleet of 34 aircraft includes Airbus 320s, Boeing 757-300s and Boeing 767-300ERs. The airline introduced Premium Economy Class service last year on its 767s. The parent company of Condor is the Thomas Cook Group Plc.
