MSP adds seasonal nonstops to Frankfurt

A German leisure carrier has announced it will add nonstop flights between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and Frankfurt, Germany, starting June 26.

Condor Flugdienst (“just call me Condor”) will fly the route with Boeing 767-300s on Mondays and Thursdays through Sept. 11.

Frankfurt International Airport is Europe’s third-busiest and is well connected for intra-European flights.

“This new nonstop service … makes it easier than ever for Minnesotans to explore all Germany has to offer. Condor’s entrance into the Twin Cities market also provides another option for travelers wishing to connect to other European cities,” Jeff Hamiel, CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, said in a statement.

MSP’s statement said one-way coach fares can be had for $529.99, up to $1,369.99 for business class. Condor offers an add-on rail package for travel within Germany.
