Alaska Airlines has expanded its partnership with Condor Airlines through a bilateral codeshare agreement. This agreement allows Alaska and Condor to sell each other’s flights, offering a more convenient travel experience for passengers.
Since their initial partnership in March 2017, Alaska Airlines and Condor Airlines have been working together. However, with the new codeshare agreement, Condor Airlines can now market and sell over 70 Alaska routes throughout the United States.
During the past summer, Alaska Airlines started promoting and selling flights from Condor’s 12 U.S. gateway cities, including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles (LAX), and Anchorage. These flights connect to Frankfurt, Germany, Condor’s main hub. Passengers can easily book these flights on Alaska Airlines’ website.
A codeshare agreement allows both airlines to sell seats on each other’s selected flights as their own. This means passengers can book connecting flights with a single reservation, enjoying a seamless travel experience. They will have the convenience of unified ticketing, check-in, boarding, and baggage handling throughout their journey.
“We continue to bolster our international partner portfolio, giving our guests convenient access to more of the globe. Condor provides a key link with its nonstops from Alaska’s gateway cities to Europe and beyond,” said Nat Pieper, senior vice president of fleet, finance and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “We look forward to expanding our codeshare with Condor to destinations beyond Frankfurt in the near future.”
