On Friday (February 26, 2021), Condor announced the launch of new service between Dusseldorf and Beirut, as well as to Sulaimaniyya in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan in Iraq, from May 21, 2021. The Dusseldorf-Beirut route will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, while the carrier will serve Sulaimaniyya twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. Both routes will be served with an Airbus A320 and tickets are now bookable starting at only €179.99.


In Friday’s route announcement, Condor’s CEO, Ralf Teckentrup, said,


“With flights from Dusseldorf to Beirut and Sulaimaniyya, Condor is making it possible to go on vacation with family and friends in Lebanon and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Especially due to the lockdown, friends and families have not been able to see each other for a long time and want to spend time together. We are thus expanding our flight schedule to include two destinations in high demand in the Middle East and offering travel agencies and special tour operators sales opportunities for their customers to be with their families.”


Founded in 1956, Condor is Germany’s favorite leisure airline, serving around 9.4 million guests annually to 90 destinations in Europe, Africa and America from eight German gateways. During the financial year 2018/2019, Condor Flugdienst recorded a net profit of €57 million on revenue of €1.7 billion. The German leisure carrier has a fleet of 50 aircraft which are meticulously maintained to the highest safety standards by their wholly-owned subsidiary Condo Technik with facilities in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf.
