Alaska Airlines has this week announced an expansion of its partnership with German leisure carrier Condor.
It is understood this expansion has gone as far as a bilateral codesharing arrangement which will benefit both sides and their passengers.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Alaska Airlines Expands Partnership With Condor…
It is understood that effective from last week, Condor began marketing and selling more than 70 Alaska Airlines routes across the U.S to their customers, with the vice versa arrangement happening on 12 U.S gateway cities served by the German carrier.
Commenting on the expansion of this codesharing arrangement was Nat Pieper, the Senior VP of Fleet, Finance and Alliances at the U.S carrier:
“We continue to bolster our international partner portfolio, giving our guests convenient access to more of the globe.”
“Condor provides a key link with its nonstops from Alaska’s gateway cities to Europe and beyond”.
“We look forward to expanding our codeshare with Condor to destinations beyond Frankfurt in the near future.”
Such a move comes as no surprise on the Alaska Airlines front, especially with Condor expanding into San Antonio in May 2024.
The German leisure carrier has been growing in size, which has required a need for more aircraft, of which recently they placed an order for three more Airbus A330neo aircraft.
All eyes will be on Alaska Airlines to see what additional benefits they will gain from this expanded partnership with Condor.
Eyes will also be on the German leisure carrier to see what else they may have up their sleeve for the Summer 2024 season too.
