Condor has announced that it will be flying non-stop from Frankfurt to Edmonton with a Boeing 767 from May 2023. 

The route will be offered on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the summer season and fares start at €359.99 per person.

"With the additional long-haul destination, we offer our guests an even greater choice of direct connections to their vacations and strengthen our presence in North America," said Ralf Teckentrup, CEO of Condor. "Many other destinations in Canada are also accessible via our cooperation partner WestJet."

Myron Keehn, vice-president, air service and business development, Edmonton International Airport, added: “We are pleased to welcome Condor to YEG and be part of this exciting non-stop connection to Frankfurt. Connecting with international hubs is an important step in restimulating the economy, and this new flight will help to propel and diversify both business and leisure travel and provide direct cargo access for Canadians and Europeans." 

"We look forward to working alongside our partners in the region and with Condor to connect more businesses, travellers, friends and families together." 

With the addition of Edmonton, the fifth largest city in Canada with a population of over 1.4 million people, Condor's Canada service expands to a total of five destinations. 

In addition to Edmonton, the German leisure airline also serves Toronto, Vancouver, Whitehorse, and Halifax.
