Condor Introduces Live Auction for Upgrades to Premium Economy or Business Class via App
Condor has today announced the launch of a live auction via app so guests can now bid for an upgrade for available seats in Business Class or Premium Economy Class. With a little luck, the highest bidder can enjoy an elevated experience to/from their vacation destination.
On Monday (April 3, 2023), Condor announced the launch of a live auction for upgrades via app. Customers can now bid for an upgrade to secure available Premium Economy or Business Class seats, with the open seats going to the highest bidder. Initially, the upgrade auction will be available for select long-haul flights, while short and medium-haul flights will be added soon. Auctions will open 24 hours prior to departure and close approximately 60 minutes prior to departure. During the auction period, participants can follow the auction live on the free SeatBoost app. To participate, guests must download the app, enter a credit card for payment and should have checked in for their flight in advance. After checking-in within 24 hours of departure, guests can check the SeatBoost app to see if an auction is available for their flight. Naturally, only the winning bidder will be charged, and then their new Premium Economy or Business Class boarding pass will be displayed directly on the SeatBoost app.
