Alaska Airlines is expanding its partnership with Condor Airlines – one of our global partners since March 2017 – with a bilateral codeshare agreement that enables Alaska and Condor to sell each other’s flights. Last week, Condor began marketing and selling more than 70 Alaska routes across the U.S. This summer, Alaska began marketing and selling from Condor’s 12 U.S. gateway cities to Frankfurt, Germany – the carrier’s home airport – including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles (LAX) and Anchorage.
A codeshare is an agreement between airlines to sell seats on each other’s flights. Each airline can sell the seats on selected flights as if they were their own, in a sense putting their “code” on the flights. It offers a seamless travel experience for guests across the two airlines. Flyers will enjoy the simplicity of purchasing connecting flights on both airlines using one reservation, along with seamless ticketing, check-in, boarding and checked baggage during their travel.
Condor’s newest addition to its fleet is the Airbus A330neo, known for the quietest cabin in the world compared to other aircraft of its size. Condor flies the A330neo between the U.S. and Germany in a three-class configuration: business, premium economy and economy.
The airline recently launched its new business class product with lie-flat seats that include a larger bed and wider legroom, plus a gourmet menu and beverage service. Premium economy class also offers additional legroom with footrests to help stretch out, and meal service and complimentary beverages. All classes enjoy generous storage space, state-of-the-art inflight entertainment systems with 4K monitors and Bluetooth connectivity to use with personal wireless headphones.
Condor is expanding in the U.S. The airline recently announced it will begin new nonstop service from both Miami and San Antonio to Frankfurt in May 2024.
Condor issued this statement:
announces that it has entered a bilateral codeshare agreement with longtime partner, Alaska Airlines. This allows each of the airlines to place its designator code on the other airline’s flights and sell that flight via all GDS distribution channels. With this codeshare agreement in place, Condor is now able to market and sell more than 70 Alaska routes across the U.S.
Alaska earlier this summer began marketing and selling Condor’s nonstop flights to Frankfurt, Germany from 12 U.S. transatlantic gateways including, New York/JFK, Boston, Washington/BWI, Seattle, Portland (Oregon), San Francisco and Los Angeles, with more to be added. With the codeshare, Alaska can now offer its customers additional options for its customers traveling to Europe with Condor’s seamless connectivity from its Frankfurt hub to more than 100 destinations throughout Europe and beyond. Condor will now be able to offer its guests more access to Alaska Airlines established and growing network across the U.S. The codeshare alliance further bolsters Condor’s participation in Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program, where members can earn and redeem miles for Condor flights.
