The German airline, Condor, has announced an increase in flights to Croatia for the summer season 2018. Condor will operate from Frankfurt to Rijeka and Zadar and from Dusseldorf and Hannover to Split.
Condor is Germany's third largest commercial airline based on fleet size and passengers flown. It is headquartered at Gateway Gardens near Frankfurt Airport with an important branch office at Berlin Schönefeld Airport. It is a subsidiary of the British Thomas Cook Group, but still partners with its former parent Lufthansa through the use of the Lufthansa Group's Miles & More program, its business lounges at Frankfurt Airport and as interline partners.
On the Rijeka and Zadar routes Condor will find itself in direct competition with the largest budget airline in the world,Ryanair.
