One of The Top German Airlines Condor Flugdienst
Condor Flugdienst was founded in 1961 and quickly became a top choice for leisure travel to sun and beach destinations. Towards the end of that decade, the German airline began to fly long haul with a selection of flights to the Caribbean and South East Asia. Condor then went through a major period of expansion in the 1990s and 2000s, when it signed multiple codeshare and interline agreements with nearly 20 airlines.
Condor Flugdienst now flies to more than 85 destinations in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the American continent, and it has received awards in categories like quality of service, ticket prices and website 'user-friendliness'.
Flying with Condor Flugdienst

Fares are divided into Economy Light (no cancellation or re-booking allowed), Classic (which allows re-booking at an additional fee) and Flex (which allows multiple re-bookings for free and cancellations at a small fee).
