German airline Condor has revealed plans to revitalize travel to Asia by introducing direct flights from Frankfurt – Bangkok and Phuket starting in September. Condor is about to spread its wings with an exciting new route extension.

The airline plans to add seven flights a week to Thailand. Flights from Frankfurt to Bangkok will take place four times a week, while Phuket will fly three times a week. As the only provider of direct flights to Phuket and the only German airline to fly to Bangkok from Frankfurt, Condor holds its own in the market.

In a bold statement, the airline said Condor will return tourists to Asia for the first time since the pandemic from these two destinations.

In a bid to keep the competition on its toes, Condor also intends to launch services to Dubai from Berlin, using the state-of-the-art Airbus A320neo.

Condor began to focus on medium-haul flights to popular leisure destinations such as the Mediterranean basin and the Canary Islands. Over time, the airline expanded its reach to include long-haul flights to various destinations across Africa, Asia, North America, South America and the Caribbean. This expansion made Condor a prominent provider of scheduled flights from various German airports, with Frankfurt Airport as the primary hub.

In 2000, a significant change occurred when ownership of Condor shares passed from Lufthansa to Thomas Cook AG and the Thomas Cook Group. This move paved the way for a new chapter in the company’s history. Subsequently, in 2013, Thomas Cook Group announced the merger of Thomas Cook Airlines, Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium and Condor into a unified operating segment under the banner of Thomas Cook Group Airlines.

In related news, Korean Air unveiled plans for two more weekly flights from Incheon to Bangkok, reflecting a resurgence in appetite for travel as the world emerges from the grip of the pandemic.

Kim Jongmin, the airline’s country head, revealed that the added flights on the Incheon-Don Mueang route are in response to growing demand, particularly from South Koreans looking for a break from winter stress in January and February.
