TORONTO — Condor has joined forces with Discover the World to help grow travel agency sales in Canada and the U.S.
Discover will bring sales and marketing expertise, and extensive relationships developed over two decades in the USA & Canada, to the service of Condor to better maximize opportunities outside of the scope of Condor’s Europe-based international sales team, says Ian Murray, Discover the World’s CEO.
Murray adds that Discover’s strategy will include expanding sales by exploiting the potential of the “long tail” in USA & Canada.
“We are really excited to work with Condor to expand their reach and connect more of the trade in North America to Condor’s network in the USA & Canada,” said Murray.
Adds Carsten Sasse, Condor’s Head of Sales for Overseas Markets: “The partnership with Discover the World North America was a logical step for us, since we are working with the brand closely and successful for many years in other major European markets. The new cooperation between our two brands will allow us to corner new segments and explore further commercial opportunities within the Condor business in North America.”
Condor’s current 2021 flight schedule connects Seattle and New York-JFK to Frankfurt with well-timed connections to Europe and more than 80 destinations around the world.
As the schedule returns to normalcy in 2022, Condor flights are planned from Fairbanks, Anchorage, Whitehorse, Calgary, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Toronto, Baltimore, Halifax, to Frankfurt with connections throughout Germany, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
Condor’s workhorse for long haul flights is the B767-300ER. Agents will find competitive pricing via the GDS, and for even better availability and pricing for their clients, agents can sign up for Condor’s Agent Extranet via Discover the World’s sales team.
“Discover Canada is excited to be working with Condor Airlines as they introduce their 2022 flight schedule with flights to Frankfurt and beyond, from Vancouver, Whitehorse, Calgary, Toronto and Halifax. Flight schedules vary by gateway and seasonal May thru October. Canadians are looking forward to making travel plans for the future and Condor Airlines offers excellent service at a great price,” says Jane Clementino, Director of Discover Canada.
