Condor Airlines to Return to Fairbanks in 2021
Fairbanks, Alaska (AK) – Condor Airlines has announced the return of its summer service from Frankfurt to Fairbanks in 2021.
The weekly seasonal service will begin June 17 and will run through September 9, offering a total of 13 flights with a Frankfurt-Anchorage-Fairbanks-Frankfurt configuration.
2021 will mark the airline’s 20th anniversary of summer service between Frankfurt and Fairbanks. The anniversary was originally going to take place this summer, but Condor had to halt all its air service to the United States due to COVID-19 issues.
“We are thrilled to once again see Condor land in Fairbanks and look forward to celebrating a belated 20th anniversary with them,” said Explore Fairbanks President and CEO Deb Hickok. “We greatly appreciate our partnership with them and the important role they play bringing visitors to Fairbanks from German-speaking Europe, one of the core international markets for our region.”
Explore Fairbanks has had contract representation in German-speaking Europe for close to 20 years.
“Condor has been serving Fairbanks for 20 years now, and we are planning to return next summer when COVID will be over. This underlines the importance of the Fairbanks service within our network. We are looking forward to flying European travelers directly to the heart of Alaska.” Said Jens Boyd, Commercial Director for Condor.
“The Fairbanks International airport is pleased to welcome back Condor for the 2021 season and appreciates the direct service they provide Fairbanksans and visitors,” said Fairbanks International Airport Manager Angie Spear.
Condor began summer seasonal weekly service in 2001 with a Frankfurt-Whitehorse-Fairbanks-Frankfurt route configuration. This flight was the result of a collaborative effort among Explore Fairbanks, Fairbanks International Airport and other community partners including non-profits and the for-profit private sector.
