WestJet Connects Five Canadian Cities to Frankfurt Through Codeshare With Condor

On Monday (June 24, 2024), WestJet announced the launch of a new codeshare partnership with Condor, which will provide direct access to Frankfurt from five Canadian gateways, including Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto and Halifax.  Under the new agreement, WestJet will sell itineraries on Condor-operated flights to Frankfurt with the ease of a single ticket and through checked baggage, as well as the ability to earn WestJet Dollars throughout.  Inbound Condor guests to Canada will also enjoy one-stop connectivity to WestJet’s extensive domestic network, as well as transborder U.S. destinations starting later this summer.  This builds on WestJet and Condor’s existing interline partnership, which has been in place for 10 years. 


In Monday’s announcement, WestJet Group’s EVP and Chief Commercial Officer, John  Weatherill, said,


“Through the expansion of our partnership with Condor Airlines, we are unlocking amazing opportunities for our guests in Europe and Canada to access an extensive list of tourism destinations on both sides of the Atlantic.  Our shared passion for affordable leisure travel has allowed our partnership to evolve to meet the growing demand for transatlantic travel, and we look forward to welcoming the world to Canada this summer.”


Also commenting on the new codeshare partnership, Condor’s Commercial Director, Jens Boyd, added,


“With Condor’s return to Calgary, it's been high time for us to strengthen our ties with WestJet and improve travel for our passengers and sales partners.  Everyone will be able to access our joint codeshare network to Frankfurt and beyond through WestJet.com, and services can be added irrespective of where the ticket was booked. In parallel, we are streamlining connections at all Canadian airports by allowing our passengers to go to their connecting gate right after immigration without having to pick up their luggage first.”


Founded in 1956, Condor Flugdienst GmbH is Germany’s favorite leisure airline and serves over nine million guests annually to 90 destinations in Europe, Africa, and America from nine German gateways, Zurich and Vienna.  The German leisure carrier has a fleet of over 50 aircraft which are meticulously maintained to the highest safety standards by their wholly owned subsidiary Condor Technik with facilities in Frankfurt and Düsseldorf.  Condor was the German launch customer for the state-of-the-art Airbus A330neo.


With 28 years of service, WestJet has cut airfares for Canadians in half and increased the flying population around Canada by over 50 percent.  The airline launched in 1996 with three aircraft, 250 employees and five destinations, and has now grown to more than 180 aircraft and 14,000 employees, offering service to over 100 destinations in 26 countries.
