Air Namibia faces stiff competition
The German airline, Condor is set to stiffen up the competition on the Windhoek to Frankfurt route when they add a new long-haul destination to their timetable.
The first-ever flights to Windhoek will start on 10 November, leaving Frankfurt twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays whilst flights from Windhoek to Frankfurt will also take off on Mondays and Thursdays, starting on 13 November.
In the 2015 summer timetable, the flights from Frankfurt to Windhoek and from Windhoek to Frankfurt are scheduled for Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Jens Boyd, Head of Long-Haul at Condor said, “We will again be setting the trend in the 2014/15 winter season, and will be introducing our customers to the new and exciting destination of Namibia. Windhoek is the perfect tourist destination for the Condor flight program and enhances our service in the south of Africa.”
“With non-stop flights from Windhoek to Frankfurt, we can also offer the sizeable traveling community a convenient and hassle-free way to travel to Europe,” he added.
“Condor passengers can, for example, fly from Windhoek to Frankfurt and have the option of connecting flights to many German and European airports, which can easily be booked with Condor at the same time. Condor also offers train tickets within Germany for an affordable 33 per person and route. Affordable connecting flights to various global destinations for example the USA, Cuba and Asia can also be booked on Condor,” he said.
Meanwhile, Condor’s entire long-haul fleet has been fitted with a new cabin interior since the summer of this year. Seats in all classes have been replaced with modern aircraft seats with in-seat entertainment. Entertainment on demand is provided in all classes, so that every passenger can choose a personal entertainment program on their own screen.
The new Condor Business Class now has fully-automatic, comfortable lie-flat seats, in addition to the excellent service to which passengers have become accustomed. A power outlet and USB port are integrated in the seat. Seats in Premium Economy Class are fitted with headrests with individual height and side adjustment, and comfortable footrests.
Condor Flugdienst GmbH has been flying its passengers to the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations since 1956. On an annual basis, 7 million passengers fly with Condor to around 75 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
Since 2013, Condor has been part of the Thomas Cook Group Airlines to which the Thomas Cook Airlines UK, Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia also belong. The fleet of the airlines in the Thomas Cook Group comprises 88 modern and environmentally friendly aircraft, of which 40 aircraft are in the Condor fleet: 12 Airbus A320s, 3 Airbus A321, 13 Boeing 757-300s and 12 Boeing 767-300s.
