Emirates and German leisure carrier Condor have officially activated their reciprocal interline agreement.
This strategic partnership opens up a network of 70 routes spanning Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia, and the Middle East, presenting customers with a hassle-free travel solution under a unified ticket fare.
Emirates passengers can now embark on journeys to captivating European and Caribbean destinations operated by Condor.
With the activation of this interline agreement, travelers gain access to 24 regional points via Frankfurt, 12 via Dusseldorf, 9 via Hamburg, and 12 via Munich.
Cities such as Malaga, Ibiza, Cancun, and Havana are now within reach, all attainable with a single ticket and the convenience of baggage check-through to their final destination.
Condor’s Gateway to the World
Reciprocally, Condor’s patrons will enjoy enhanced access to Emirates-operated flights connecting Frankfurt and Dubai.
Furthermore, this partnership extends their reach beyond Dubai to 12 key points across Asia, Australasia, Africa, and the Middle East, including Auckland, Bangkok, Male, Muscat, and Mauritius.
Expanding Emirates’ European Presence
This collaboration significantly amplifies Emirates’ presence in Europe, adding 57 points to its existing four gateways in Germany.
Business and leisure travelers now have an array of options and enhanced connectivity to explore popular European and Caribbean destinations.
Emirates, with a history of service in Germany since 1987, currently operates 63 weekly flights to Frankfurt, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, and Munich.
The airline’s commitment to meeting customer demand and expanding its global footprint is further underscored by strategic partnerships.
With the addition of Condor, Emirates now boasts a network of 30 codeshare and 121 interline partners, providing its customers with access to over 1,500 cities across 6 continents.
Emirates Skywards Members
In addition to the interline agreement, Emirates Skywards members are set to benefit even more. Members can now earn and redeem Miles on all Condor-operated flights.
The earning potential is impressive, with up to 1 Skywards Mile per mile flown in Economy Class, 1.25 Skywards Miles in Economy Premium Class, and up to 2.15 Skywards Miles in Business Class.
Redeeming these Miles is equally enticing, starting from 8,000 Miles for a one-way Economy Class ticket and 16,000 Miles for a one-way Business Class ticket.
This adds a new dimension to the travel experience for over 1.4 million German nationals and residents enrolled in Emirates Skywards, providing exclusive privileges, flight rewards, upgrades, hotel stays, and unforgettable experiences.
As Germany’s most popular leisure airline, Condor has been taking its guests to the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations since 1956.
Every year, more than nine million guests fly with Condor from the eight largest airports in Germany, from Zurich in Switzerland and from Vienna in Austria to around 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and America.
Condor operates a fleet of over 50 aircraft, which are maintained by the company’s own maintenance operation, Condor Technik GmbH, according to the highest safety standards at the Frankfurt and Düsseldorf locations.
At the end of 2022, Condor, as the German launch customer, took delivery of the first new Airbus A330neo long-haul aircraft.
An average of one new long-haul aircraft will be flown every month until 2024. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology and maximum efficiency, the latest-generation 2-litre aircraft is the European front-runner with 2.1 litres per passenger per 100 kilometres and the highest level of customer comfort.
Moreover, Condor will receive 41 brand-new short- and medium-haul aircraft of the A32Xneo family from 2024.
