Increased passenger numbers at the beginning of the winter holidays

We ask our guests who start their journey at the beginning of the Christmas holidays in the respective federal state to schedule more time for the security checks at the airport due to the increased travel volume and to arrive at their departure terminal at least two and a half hours before departure (short-haul and medium-haul flights) or at least three hours before departure (long-haul flights).

We also recommend using our Late Nate Check-in the day before departure or the online check-in to avoid waiting times at the airport. Please also ensure that any Christmas presents in your hand luggage do not contain any prohibited items or liquids exceeding the permitted quantity.

All passengers should also check their flight status regularly or, if the flight was booked as part of a package tour, directly with the tour operator.

Safety Regulations for lithium-ion battery devices

According to regulations of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the transport of equipment with a defective or recalled lithium-ion battery in checked baggage on board all Condor flights is prohibited due to safety reasons. Such devices, like the Apple MacBook Pro models affected by a recall recently, may be carried in carry-on baggage but must be switched-off and are not be used or charged during the flight. The device must also be stowed in hand luggage under the front seat and observed. In the event of heat generation, the cabin crew must be informed immediately. We kindly ask our guests for their understanding, as safety is our first priority at all times.
