Thomas Cook: Condor’s KL-Frankfurt route running as usual


Condor, the German airline subsidiary of the collapsed UK tour firm Thomas Cook, is still operating its twice-weekly KL-Frankfurt route as usual.

This was confirmed by Condor’s General Sales Agency in Malaysia, Aviareps.

Travel Trade Sales Director of Aviareps Malaysia, Viviene Wong, said as announced by Condor, all of its flights are not disrupted by the cessation of Thomas Cook’s operation on Monday.

“Yes. Tickets are still bookable,” she told Bernama International News Service when contacted.

Condor is currently operating the KL-Frankfurt route on Tuesdays and Fridays using its Airbus 320 fleet.

However, Wong said Condor had previously announced that it would stop flying the route starting Jan 20, 2020.

Condor, in a statement on Monday, said ticket sales for flights with Condor are continuing as normal and customers are advised to take a travel cancellation insurance with their booking.

It also said that the airline’s application for a state-guaranteed bridging loan – made to avoid short term liquidity challenges – is currently being examined by Germany’s Federal Government.
