PHX Sky Harbor Adding More International and East Coast Service in 2019
Phoenix, AZ – Condor Airlines has announced that it is increasing its nonstop service between Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Frankfurt, Germany from two days per week to three. Condor began its service at Phoenix Sky Harbor in the spring of this year, flying twice a week to Frankfurt May through September. The route was so successful, that the airline announced last summer it would expand service nearly two full months to include all of May and October 2019. Condor is now increasing the frequency of the PHX to Frankfurt flights and will operate on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday May through October of 2019.
“Adding more direct flights between Phoenix and Frankfurt makes traveling more convenient for business and leisure passengers and increases our global connectivity,” said Mayor Thelda Williams. “We are proud that Sky Harbor International Airport provides world class service for travelers—expanding Phoenix’s partnership with Condor is part of that success.”
This flight offers a convenient connection from Arizona to Europe and beyond. Condor, part of the Thomas Cook Group, offers service to around 90 destinations from Frankfurt. The flights will continue to be served by a Boeing 767-300ER with more than 250 seats. Each passenger receives complimentary checked baggage, beverages, meals and in-flight entertainment at each seat. The 18 seats in Business Class feature lie-flat seats, a 15” personal in-seat premium entertainment system, power and USB ports, and gourmet meals with complimentary beer, wine and cocktails.
In addition, JetBlue has announced new service between Phoenix Sky Harbor and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The daily nonstop flight will be served by an Airbus A320 and begins on February 14, 2019. JetBlue also serves Boston and New York’s JFK Airport nonstop from PHX. The flight will be operated year-round.
Phoenix Sky Harbor is a convenient gateway to destinations in the U.S. and abroad with nonstop service offered to more than 100 domestic destinations and 22 international destinations. The flight will continue to benefit the local economy, as international flights to Phoenix already bring in more $3 billion each year.
