Condor is a German airline founded in December 1955 under the name of “Deutsche Flugdienst GmbH”. Four entrepreneurs owned the company more or less equally: Norddeutscher Lloyd (27.75%), Hamburg-Amerika-Linie (27.7%), Deutsche Lufthansa (26%) and Deutsche Bundesbahn (18.5%). In 1959, Lufthansa bought 95.5% of the capital. In its early days the fleet consisted of 3 planes, the first commercial flights started in March 1956. During the first year Mallorca and Tenerife were included in the company’s flight program. Ten years later, in 1966, the first international connections were launched with destinations such as Thailand and the Dominican Republic.
In 1971, Condor was the first airline to use a Boeing 747, the “Jumbo”. In the 1990s, it was the first airline to offer Business class for its leisure customers. It will develop this class in 2001 in its new Boeing 767-300s before adding a Premium class in 2008 to complete its long-haul offer. Today, Condor is Germany’s leading leisure airline. On September 23, 2019, the Thomas Cook group announced the end of its operations. But Condor announces the continuation of its activities.
Customers at German airports can use the Lufthansa Business Lounges to relax a little before the flight. The frequent flyer program Miles & More was also taken over by Lufthansa. For more than 50 years, the airline has stood for high quality in aviation that is affordable for everyone.
