Miami International Airport (MIA) adds another international airline with German airline Condor and an attractive offer of flights to Europe.

“Germany generates more than 450,000 visitors and we hope that number will grow with these new flights,” said director of Miami-Dade County Aviation and MIA airport, Ralph Cutié, during the inauguration of the route Tuesday night.

Cutié noted that “Condor is one of the new achievements of the Miami airport in its efforts to expand flight service to and from Europe.”

“Now we have more direct flights to Frankfurt, in Germany,” Cutié stressed. “And this will increase our ability to connect with the network of destinations in Europe,” he added.

In fact, Frankfurt Airport, located in the central west of Germany, is the most important air terminal in the German country and provides connections to a hundred destinations.

Let´s mention the significant train network that connects the German city with national and European destinations.

The route between Miami and Frankfurt is operated by a modern Airbus A330-900neo plane, the most environmentally efficient, with capacity for 310 people, which includes 30 seats in Business Class, and they can be converted into comfortable beds with the push of a button, and 64 seats in Premium Economy, in addition to 216 seats in Economy class.

The exterior design of the aircraft stands out, with distinctive stripes in striking colors on the entire fuselage, as well as the interior with modern toilets and ambient lighting in the three cabins, with the latest LED technology, which helps stabilize the mood of the passengers during a long trip.

“Miami and the United States are our great goals, and this flight is a fantastic way to expand our connections,” highlighted Mikko Turtiainen, director of Sales in the Americas for Condor Airlines.

“Every morning, I wake up very excited because I know Condor is a great airline and now, we’re bringing it to Miami,” said Dimitri Mougoyannis, Chief Operating Officer of Condor Airlines.

Also, the Deputy Consul General of Germany in Miami, Klaus Bormann, stated that the new route between Miami and Frankfurt "is an excellent example of European collaboration and here we are, after a few months preparing and negotiating (with German and Miami authorities). Here we are,” he stressed.

Founded in 1955, Condor gradually became independent from Lufthansa and currently serves more than 100 destinations.

Last year, MIA airport achieved another historic mark, after reaching 52.3 million passengers during 2023, one and a half million more than the previous year and almost three million above the mark established before the coronavirus pandemic.

Besides Condor, MIA reports the addition of international airlines such as Volaris El Salvador, Norse Atlantic Airways and Porter Airlines, expanding its airline inventory to 97, the highest among US airports.

Looking to 2024, MIA anticipates further increase in passengers and cargo with the addition of more American Airlines flights to the Bahamas and Jamaica, as well as the addition of foreign airlines LEVEL and Viva Aerobus and China Cargo Airlines, among others which local authorities hold talks with, such as Japan Airlines and Taiwan's China Airlines.
