FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Feb 22, 2016) - Condor is continuing Seattle to Frankfurt service from summer seasonal to year-round. Starting April 18th thru October 31st Condor will operate up to five weekly flights on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays in each direction. The winter timetable comes into effect on Monday November 3rd 2016 and applies until Thursday April 27th 2017 with two weekly flights on Mondays and Thursdays allowing passengers to conveniently travel from the West Coast to the heart of Europe and beyond during the winter months.

Frankfurt is a highly populated city in the center of Germany and the financial heartbeat of continental Europe. The densely populated "Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region" is the second largest metropolitan region in Germany. Located in the central western part of the country, this region stretches over parts of the states of Hesse, Bavaria and Rhineland-Palatinate. Major cities within this region include Frankfurt am Main, Mainz, Wiesbaden or Aschaffenburg. The region consists of a rich cultural landscape, offering everything from national museums, theatres, operas, pulsating nightlife, ski-resorts and great Christmas markets during the Holiday season and much more. Frankfurt is an excellent starting point for tours throughout Germany and Europe.

"The expansion of our service between SEATAC and Frankfurt with flights throughout the year shows clearly how important the Pacific Northwest market is for Condor. Seattle is a growing year-round destination for us. The demand for passengers wanting to travel to Germany and all over Europe with Condor is significantly growing. Germany is also great destination in the fall and winter.
