SEATTLE – Condor Airlines announced that it will begin flying a new route between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Munich, Germany, a major European hub.
Condor’s new seasonal Munich flight will join its existing service between Seattle and Frankfurt, which it successfully served since 2011. Condor previously served the SEA to Munich route in 2017, when the airline was operating under the ownership of the Thomas Cook Group.
Munich is a major hub for both business and tourism, serving both as a major European center for technology and life science and as the gateway to the Alps. Condor’s European hub in Munich will also provide travelers with connections throughout southern Europe, especially Greece and the Balkans.
“Growth in business and leisure European travel drives more of the local economy than people realize,” explained SEA Airport Managing Director Lance Lyttle. “From both a business and cultural perspective, this region remains a major draw to world audiences. We are making major investments to welcome those visitors and improve the experience for residents when they need to travel abroad.”
As one of Alaska’s global partners, Condor will offer Mileage Plan members the ability to earn and redeem miles on flights.
The new flight will operate seasonally on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from June 2 through October 1, 2020.
