Condor to distribute Laudamotion flights following airberlin acquisition

Leisure airline Condor has begun selling selected flights of Austrian airline, Laudamotion, on its website.

The news follows Laudamotion’s acquisition of assets from the former airberlin subsidiary Niki Luftfahrt.

The agreement also means Thomas Cook Group Airlines will provide a number of services to support Laudamotion’s operations, such as crew planning, operations control, and flight dispatch.

All flights are short- and medium-haul from Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Basel to the Balearic destinations of Mallorca and Ibiza and to Malaga on the Spanish mainland.

“We bring a little Austrian charm to Germany and our passengers benefit from a more flexible and wider choice of flights to the most beautiful holiday destinations in the Mediterranean.

“Especially in the summer, travellers will benefit from a wide and differentiated offer.

“Laudamotion will set trends with its special spirit and excellent on-board service.”
