German leisure carrier Condor will begin five new routes to the Caribbean and Central America in its winter 2016 schedule.

The airline will add Martinique to its network with once-weekly service from Frankfurt on a Boeing 767-300ER, new once-weekly service to Barbados, San Jose in Costa Rica and Santo Domingo from Munich and new three-times weekly service to Havana from Munich in November 2016.

“We have continuously expanded our long-haul routes from Munich in recent years,” says Ralf Teckentrup, chief commercial officer of Thomas Airlines Group, in a statement. “This is possible thanks to three new long-haul aircraft which will be added to our fleet in 2016.”

Condor will also increase frequency on a number of existing routes to the Caribbean from Munich next winter.

“We like to broaden our portfolio to the Caribbean,” says Wilken Bellmann, head of long-haul network development at Thomas Cook, on the sidelines of the Routes Americas forum in San Juan today.

Condor already serves Martinique in partnership with cruise lines and sees demand for more service in the market among European tourists who like the tax savings of travelling within the EU and like visiting French-influenced markets.

The leisure carrier will offer 52 weekly flights from Frankfurt, Munich and Vienna to points around the globe during the winter of 2016 and 2017 travel season.
