Alaska Airlines and Condor expand codeshare deal

Alaska Airlines has confirmed it will be expanding the partnership with Condor Airlines, a global partner for the carrier since March 2017.

The bilateral codeshare agreement enables Alaska and Condor to sell each other’s flights and just last week, the German leisure airline, Condor began marketing and selling more than 70 Alaska routes across the U.S. This summer, Alaska began marketing and selling from Condor’s 12 U.S. gateway cities to Frankfurt, Germany – the carrier’s home airport – including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles (LAX) and Anchorage. Each airline can sell the seats on selected flights as if they were their own, in a sense putting their “code” on the flights. It offers a seamless travel experience for guests across the two airlines. Flyers will enjoy the simplicity of purchasing connecting flights on both airlines using one reservation, along with seamless ticketing, check-in, boarding and checked baggage during their travel. 

“We continue to bolster our international partner portfolio, giving our guests convenient access to more of the globe. Condor provides a key link with its nonstops from Alaska’s gateway cities to Europe and beyond,” said Nat Pieper, senior vice president of fleet, finance and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “We look forward to expanding our codeshare with Condor to destinations beyond Frankfurt in the near future.”  

Condor’s newest addition to its fleet is the Airbus A330neo, known for the quietest cabin in the world compared to other aircraft of its size. Condor flies the A330neo between the U.S. and Germany in a three-class configuration: business, premium economy and economy.  

The airline recently launched its new business class product with lie-flat seats that include a larger bed and wider legroom, plus a gourmet menu and beverage service. Premium economy class also offers additional legroom with footrests to help stretch out, and meal service and complimentary beverages. All classes enjoy generous storage space, state-of-the-art inflight entertainment systems with 4K monitors and Bluetooth connectivity to use with personal wireless headphones. 

Condor is expanding in the U.S. The airline recently announced it will begin new nonstop service from both Miami and San Antonio to Frankfurt in May 2024.
