Are you headed to Europe this summer? Do you collect Alaska Airlines miles? Then check out Condor Air, which resumes its nonstop flights from Anchorage, Fairbanks and Whitehorse to Frankfurt, Germany on May 19.
Now you can earn-and-burn your Alaska Air miles. I just checked today and found nonstop flights from Anchorage to Frankfurt for 25K on the outbound and 40K on the return flight. You can trim that cost a little bit by going through Seattle–but WHO WANTS TO DO THAT? #NONSTOP
If you plan on purchasing your tickets, the prices start at around $1,000 roundtrip. See–that’s why the mileage option is so important! You can even fly one-way on miles and purchase the return leg.
Condor continues to upgrade their fleet of 767s that flies to Anchorage. The three-class configuration has 18 seats in Business Class and 35 seats in Premium Class.
Here’s the rundown on Condor’s Premium Class:
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 oversized pillows.
h. Separate check-in
i. “Wellbeing set” with extra goodies.
Of course, prices change all the time, but when I priced out the Premium seats, it was about $1700 roundtrip Anchorage-Frankfurt-Anchorage.
Remember, Condor flies beyond Frankfurt. Check out their website (www.condor.com) and see the other destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Remember: EARN AND BURN with Alaska Air miles!
