May 17 is the first flight this year for Condor’s seasonal over-the-top flights between Anchorage and Frankfurt, Germany. The polar route trims about 13 hours off of the trip…it’s just 9.5 hours.
Condor starts the season with two flights each week, doubling to 4x weekly flights later in June and July. All flights are aboard Condor’s 767-300ER aircraft direct to Frankfurt, in the heart of Europe. From there, you can connect to another Condor flight, Lufthansa or a train. There is a train to the airport, which connects to the downtown station.
The first flight from Anchorage on May 17 is $460 one-way. For $210 more ($670 one-way), you can upgrade to Premium Class. Here’s what you get:
a. Lots more legroom (15cm more than economy)
b. Increased baggage allowance (10kg carry-on and 32kg checked bags)
c. Free drinks with meals.
d. Nine-inch seatback monitor for movies.
e. Premium menu.
f. Footrests and headrests.
g. Blankets and ovesized pillows.
h. Separate check-in at FRA
i. “Wellbeing set” with extra goodies.
There are about 36 seats in the Premium Cabin, located just behind Business Class. I checked the return flight on May 24: economy is $590, while Premium is $790 ($200 more). Because of availability and demand, it seems each flight has its own price.
Condor’s weekly (Thursday departures) Fairbanks-Frankfurt nonstop flights start on June 16. On the June 23 departure economy is priced at $530, while Premium is selling for $800 each way. Returning on June 29 (via Anchorage), economy is priced at $680, while Premium is $820.
When you’re traveling to Europe, Condor is the way to go. On your next trip, stretch out in Premium Class. Grab your passport and meet me at the airport! Book online, or call: (866) 960-7915.
