Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Officials now in Berlin, Germany for the tourism trade fair ‘ITB’ are in a celebratory mood as day one of ITB was met with positive news as Condor announced its return to the destination with a weekly service starting November 5, 2024 until May 6, 2025 from Frankfurt.  

Colin C. James, Chief Executive Officer of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority (ABTA), during Antigua and Barbuda’s on-stand press conference held for the announcement stated, "We are excited about the resumption of the direct service from Condor next winter season. The German speaking market is our second most important European market, with the flight acting as a major gateway creating access from central Europe to Antigua.” 

“We appreciate the efforts of the partners with us at ITB: Elite Island Resorts, Royalton and Caribbean Beach Cottage that as a whole represent 10 properties in Antigua as well as our sailing fraternity KH+P and Sailing Classics.  Through a collaborated effort and strong partnerships, we will make the flight a success and increase visitor numbers. Additionally, we are delighted that the service will end after Sailing Week which provides a seamless departure for our European sailors”, added James.  

Tourism Officials expect that this new longer flight schedule which now covers Sailing Week will ensure more German participation in the signature yachting event.  

The brand new A330-900 aircraft will have a total of 27 rotations tagged with Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  The configuration of the aircraft can hold a total of 310 passengers with 30 business class seats and 64 premium economy seats, ideal for Antigua and Barbuda’s target audience.

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority will be planning immediate robust sales and marketing activities to educate the trade and further build awareness of the flight. 

A workshop will take place on Tuesday 19 March 2024, for Antigua and Barbuda’s on-island partners to learn more about how they can capitalise on this opportunity to diversify. For more information on the workshop contact the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority on 562-7600.

 The Condor Flight to Antigua can be booked from March 7.
