Condor Airlines will continue flights between Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport and Frankfurt, Germany in 2019. It would be the third year of seasonal service between the two cities.

Condor first began its seasonal schedule in 2017. Airport officials say more than 30,000 passengers have flown that route since then, with 2018 seeing a six percent increase.

"New Orleans is an international City, and an international destination. International travel continues to climb, and the return of Condor Airlines to MSY is a big win for our people," said Mayor LaToya Cantrell.  "I am thankful for Condor's commitment to providing this link between New Orleans and Frankfurt, and I encourage our residents to support this flight so we can further strengthen our ties to Europe."

The 2019 flights begin June 6 and will run through September 23. Flights will depart New Orleans Monday and Thursday nights and arrive in Frankfurt the next day. Flights from Frankfurt to New Orleans leave Monday and Thursday afternoons and arrive in New Orleans those nights.

Condor offers three classes of service -- business, premium, and economy -- aboard its 245-seat Boeing 767-300.

“We are thrilled that Condor will return in 2019 for a third year with flights to Frankfurt, Germany, and the many destinations beyond,” said Kevin Dolliole, Director of Aviation for Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. “The flight has seen great success since launching in 2017 thanks, in large part, to the locals who book the flights and to the support of regional partners in the business, hospitality and tourism industries who continue to help promote the service.”

“Condor’s continued commitment to New Orleans demonstrates that New Orleans is an international destination,” said Michael Hecht, President and CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc. “Since its launch in 2017, Condor has played an important role in the increase in international visitors and business coming to our region.  As we prepare for a new world-class terminal, we look forward working with Condor to make the flight even more successful into the future.”
