New Air Service! Edmonton-Frankfurt
Edmonton International Airport (EIA) will launch a new route to Europe and a world of travel options next summer with a new non-stop flight to Frankfurt, Germany with Condor Airlines.
Flights to Frankfurt from Edmonton start June 1, 2020 and will operate twice a week, Monday and Thursday for the summer season. Condor will operate a 259 seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft for the route.
The new route also provides an excellent option for international visitors to come to visit Edmonton to access the region’s outstanding tourism and business offerings. These include, Indigenous experiences, farm to table choices, countless summer festivals and long-summer nights, as well as global-scale technology, medical and energy sector clusters.
This lively metropolis boasts a futuristic skyline with dozens of modern skyscrapers and impressive museums on the banks of the River Main. The city is also home to high-end shopping, restaurants, and cultural sights, including more than 30 museums. Yet Frankfurt’s modern cityscape doesn’t mean the city isn’t historic. Dotted throughout the urban landscape are historic buildings which were rebuilt following the near-total destruction of the Old Town during World War II.
Frankfurt’s skyline has earned it the nickname ‘Mainhattan’ – a combination of the River Main and Manhattan, the skyline it most resembles.
