MSP Airport issued thisd statement:
Amid continuing signs of air travel’s recovery, Condor Airlines will resume its seasonal nonstop Frankfurt, Germany, service on June 1 from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) after a two-year hiatus.
Condor will operate flights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays departing MSP at 6:45 p.m. on a Boeing 767-300 aircraft that features three classes of service (Economy, Premium and Business, featuring lie-flat seats, a personal in-seat, premium touch-screen entertainment system, power ports at every seat, and premium menus with complimentary non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages). Passenger demand from the MSP market to Frankfurt (FRA) is approximately 16,000 passengers per year.
Condor’s announcement comes as passenger activity at MSP has been strong, especially through the spring break travel season. In March, MSP recorded nine of the 10 busiest TSA checkpoint days in the past two years during the pandemic, with a peak day of nearly 40,000 passengers. Strong spring break activity was evident at Terminal 2, which set an all-time monthly passenger record in March of more than 526,000 passengers.
