Condor has announced that it will be expanding its North American network next summer, adding new destinations and frequencies to existing routes for its typical high season.

Condor currently offers a wide range of flights in North America, from Austin, Texas to Fairbanks, Alaska, and many other destinations along the way. In 2018, the airline plans on adding flights to Phoenix, Arizona, becoming the second European airline to serve the airport after British Airways. The airline will also be expanding frequencies to Austin (Texas) and Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) to three times weekly each and will be upgrading its Seattle service to a daily flight this summer. On top of this, the airline has announced plans to expand its fleet, intent on buying airberlin’s Airbus A330 fleet.

Unlike other low-cost carriers, Condor’s Boeing 767s offer in-flight entertainment at every seat and power. Condor is working to market itself as a low-cost, high-performance airline, hoping that passengers will choose the airline due to its price tag.

Condor is a German leisure airline owned by the Thomas Cook group. The airline was founded in 1956, and has a fleet of 46 aircraft, including 16 Boeing 767-300ERs that operate its flights to the United States. The airline’s main hub is in the country’s financial center of Frankfurt.
