German airline Condor will resume flights to Tobago later this year.
In a release on Thursday, the Tobago Tourism Agency Ltd confirmed that the airline will again conduct direct flights between Germany and Tobago starting in November.
The airline resumed service to Tobago last November but stopped its airlift service to the island on Sunday.
The release stated, “Following up on negotiations with longstanding airline partner Condor over the past few months, the Tobago Tourism Agency Ltd is excited to announce the resumption of direct airlift between Germany and Tobago for Winter 2023/2024.”
TTAL continued, “Condor will be operating a weekly flight on Tuesdays between the Frankfurt Airport in Germany and the ANR Robinson International Airport in Tobago, commencing on November 7, 2023 and ending on April 9, 2024. All flights will be on the brand new A330-900neo, and will be available for booking from May 1, 2023.”
TTAL Executive chair, Alicia Edwards said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Condor Airlines back to Tobago as we seek to make it even easier for our German visitors to access and experience everything our unspoilt island has to offer. The return of this flight acknowledges the relevance of the destination for the German-speaking market and paves the way for us to initiate accelerated marketing plans.”
Tobago’s overseas destination representative in Germany, Angelika Wegner said, “The weekly flight service from Frankfurt will not only cater for the continued demand among German-speaking customers in Tobago, but will also support the vast marketing activities of the Tobago Tourism Agency in its strategy to expand share in and increase arrival numbers from its second main source market.”
The announcement has come just over a month since the TTAL team attended ITB Berlin at the beginning of March.
During that visit, TTAL officials met with Condor Airlines to advocate for additional direct airlift between Germany and Tobago, explore airlift possibilities for the Scandinavian region, and work on an agreement for Winter 2023/2024.
However, in that meeting, TTAL confirmed they were not able to negotiate an agreement for the airline to operate during the Summer period.
