Germany’s Condor Airlines has launched a new nonstop flight between Frankfurt and The Bahamas.
The first Condor-Nassau flight arrived to the sounds of Junkanoo drums at Nassau’s Lynden Pindling Airport on Monday.
Condor has made a substantial investment in the Bahamian economy with the new weekly service, which represents the first direct service between Germany and The Bahamas in more than a decade.
Condor is operating the service on Boeing 767 aircraft.
The seasonal service will operate through April 30, 2018.
“Because of the partnership not only with Condor but the various tour operators, we will now have the ability to bring people from places like Munich, Berlin, Milan, Copenhagen, Denmark and other areas in Germany,” said Tyrone Sawyer, Senior Director of Airlift Development at the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation. “We will also have representation from the various Out Islands, Nassau/Paradise Island and Grand Bahama Promotion Boards, and through an interline arrangement with Bahamasair, passengers will have the opportunity to go to every single island in The Bahamas. This allows us to spread tourism not only to Nassau but throughout The Bahamas.”
