Condor Announces Summer Destinations and Winter 2021/22 Flight Schedule From Zurich
Condor is offering service to nine popular Mediterranean destinations from Zurich for Summer 2021. This winter, the carrier will also launch service from Zurich to Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Tenerife, as well as Funchal and Madeira from November.
On Thursday (June 24, 2021), Condor announced their summer 2021 and winter 2021/22 schedules from Zurich. For summer, the carrier’s two Zurich-based Airbus A320s will fly several times weekly to popular Mediterranean getaways including Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Greece (Crete, Kos, Rhodes), Cyprus (Larnaca), and Sardinia (Olbia). Condor’s winter 2021/22 schedule from Zurich includes service to Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Tenerife, with added service to Funchal and Madeira from November. All flights in the current summer and winter schedules are now bookable either as a package tour with all Swiss tour operators, through travel agencies, or as flight-only tickets on the airline's website.
In Wednesday’s schedule announcement, Condor Switzerland’s Country Manager, Thomas Welti, said,
“Condor has been flying its guests on vacation for 65 years - and from July, things will finally get off to a flying start from Zurich. We're launching in Zurich with a diverse selection of destinations, a competitive product and the kind of service that lets vacations begin on board. And because we have pent-up demand for real beach, sun and sea after all the videoconferencing, we are bringing all sun-seekers to the most popular destinations for the winter season as well. Flights from October to Easter 2022 are already available for booking.”
