German holiday airline Condor has sent a Boeing 767 lands to New Zealand to pick up 250 stranded German tourists there and take them back to Germany.

The flight was on behalf of various German tour operators, with whom Condor has worked closely as a holiday airline for decades.  The airline launched the special flight within a few hours and is the first time in its history it has flown to New Zealand, over 18,000 kilometres away.  

The flight had a refuelling stopover in Phuket, where Condor has recently set up a hub with over 100 employees, such as crews, technicians and ground handling, and several aircraft.

The airline has also operated several flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth in Australia to bring hundreds of travellers back to Germany on behalf of the Federal Foreign Office. The next few days will be followed by numerous flights from Bangkok and Phuket, from where Condor will bring well over 2,000 guests home in close cooperation with the local embassy.

Condor has brought over 74,000 travellers back to Germany in the past three weeks. As part of the Airlift of the Federal Foreign Office and in cooperation with tour operators.
