A major airline is adding nonstop flights between San Diego and Frankfurt, Germany, making it one of the only nonstop flights available between San Diego and Europe next year for that airline.
The San Diego International Airport and Condor airlines will offer weekly flights on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The flights use Boeing 767-300ER aircraft and offer Business Class, Premium Class and Economy Class.
“Condor’s new direct flight will now link San Diego to one of Europe’s most important economic and cultural hubs,” Mark Cafferty, president and CEO of San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation, said in a news release.
In addition, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority reported that travelers can access convenient one-stop destinations in Europe such as Paris, Vienna, Prague, Venice, Berlin, Rome, Zagreb and more.
There will be about 14,000 new seats to San Diego available through Condor airlines, which is the most popular leisure airline in Germany, according to Joe Terzi, the President and CEO of San Diego Tourism Authority.
The service will debut through Condor airlines in May 2017.
Condor officials say they’re adding the direct flights to offer more opportunities for European tourists to travel to San Diego as well.
