On Friday (December 18, 2020), Condor announced the launch of the Christmas season with their first flight between Frankfurt and Punta Cana on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic. Punta Cana is one of the carrier’s most popular holiday destinations and the service will operate three times weekly. Additionally, Condor will offer once-weekly service to Puerto Plata, Santo Domingo on the north of the island, complementing their existing service to Cuba. Condor has been operating three weekly flights to Varadero, Cuba from Frankfurt since the end of October. The German leisure carrier is also offering several weekly flights to the Maldives. In Friday’s announcement, Condor’s CEO, Ralf Teckentrup, said,
“We see from our flights to Cuba that Germans want to travel - and responsible travel is possible thanks to extensive protective measures and hygiene concepts throughout the entire journey. We are delighted to have been able to add one of the most popular destinations for Condor customers, the Dominican Republic, back to our flight schedule. So, nothing stands in the way of a winter vacation on Caribbean dream beaches.”
