Airlines Condor announces partnership with Malaysian Airlines
German leisure carrier Condor has announced, that it has completed a partnership agreement with Malaysian Airlines.
Over the course of the new agreement, Condor has recently added a new non-stop service from Frankfurt (FRA) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to its portfolio. Flight DE2358 will leave Frankfurt at 11:15 and will land at Kuala Lumpur at 06:35 the next day. Return flight DE2359 will leave Kuala Lumpur at 23:35 and will arrive at Frankfurt at around 06:20 the next day. Flights will be operated with Boeing 767-300 aircraft.
The new route, in cooperation with the new partnership, will enable passengers to connect through KUL to a wide range of destinations including Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney, Denpasar, Manila, Penang, Phuket or Singapore.
According to the carrier, Singapore and Penang will be reached in less than 16 hours, while passengers will only need less than 18 hours to reach Denpasar from Frankfurt.
Christoph Debus, Chief Airlines Officer Thomas Cook Group plc., said: "We are very pleased about the new partnership with Malaysia Airlines. This cooperation means we can expand our offer by 40 new flight connections in 15 different countries. With Malaysia Airlines we have found a strong partner at Kuala Lumpur Airport who can fly our passengers to many new destinations in Asia and Oceania."
The new cooperation is especially interesting for European customers, who can for example flee from Winter to Summer in approximately 23 hours.
The new flight is the only direct flight between Frankfurt/Main and Kuala Lumpur after Lufthansa has cancelled its service in 2015.
Condor already has a partnership with Seattle headquartered airline Alaska Airlines, with which passengers can connect through Anchorage to the USA destinations. Thomas Cook UK has furthermore announced, that it has established a partnership with Air India and Scottish regional airline Loganair.
