On Friday (January 8, 2021), Condor announced that they will once again offer service from Leipzig/Halle Airport in time for the winter holidays. Starting January 30, 2021, guests from Saxony planning early winter holidays will enjoy twice-weekly service to the Egyptian resort of Hurghada as well as three weekly flights to the Canary Islands. The popular German leisure airline will offer service between Leipzig and Tenerife on Fridays, Fuerteventura on Saturdays and Gran Canarias on Sundays.

Journeys from Leipzig are now available for booking through the carrier’s website and German travel organizers.
In Friday’s announcement, Condor’s CEO, Ralf Teckentrup, said,
“The longing for vacation is great, as we can see from our flights to the Canary Islands, Cuba, the Dominican Republic or the Maldives. We are delighted that responsible travel is also possible again for our customers from Leipzig in time for the winter vacations - with guaranteed deserted beaches, sun and relaxation.”
Further commenting on the new service, Mitteldeutsche Flughafen AG’s CEO, Götz Ahmelmann, added,
“We are delighted that Condor is the first airline to return to the starting line after the forced break. The Canaries and Egypt are popular sun destinations right now.
