Condor confirmed yesterday that the upgrade of the Condor Boeing 767 fleet, equipped with 259 seats, will be completed by summer 2014. The upgrade includes new entertainment in all classes, new modern seats and the new business class with better seat reclining options.
Jens Boyd, Head of Long-Haul at Condor, said yesterday that the new route is an “ideal” destination for the company, and compliments their flight offering in southern Africa.
Maureen Posthuma, Area Manager in Europe for the Namibia Tourism Board, said that the new direct connection puts the “land of wide open spaces” that much closer to German tourists.
She added that “the addition of Windhoek as a destination in the flight plan of the Condor not only has a positive impact on the further development of the tourist product in Namibia – it is also a sign of the growing interest in Namibia as a tourist destination”.
