Condor Is "Brand of the Year 2015"

Survey by Handelsblatt and YouGov Yields Top Results

FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2015) - Condor is enjoying great popularity among Germans and can refer to itself as "Brand of the Year 2015." This is the finding of a ranking carried out by the market research institute YouGov on behalf of the German business newspaper Handelsblatt, based on 700,000 online surveys. In the "Mobility" category, Condor achieved very good survey results. The annual "Brand of the Year 2015" distinction awards prizes to the strongest brands from various industries from a consumer viewpoint.

"We are delighted to be recognized, as this highlights our commitment to customer satisfaction. Since 1956 we have been flying our guests to their holiday destinations and are continually bringing in something new to surprise our guests with little details and offer them the best travel experience possible," said Rainer Kröpke, Customer Experience Director for Thomas Cook Group Airlines. "The most recent example is the opening of our Drive-In Service at Frankfurt Airport next week, which will give air passengers the convenience of driving up to a specially designed check-in desk the night before they fly and handing over their luggage then. This means that the holiday can begin in a very relaxed way the next day."

The Handelsblatt study further confirmed the biggest survey on brand strength from a consumer viewpoint, "Customer Favorite 2015." In this survey, the agency "Faktenkontor" questioned more than one million customers from social networks on 500 brands from more than 40 industries on behalf of Focus Money magazine. Condor is the only airline to receive a gold award and can refer to itself as "Customer Favorite 2015."

Condor Flugdienst GmbH has been flying its passengers to the world's most beautiful holiday destinations since 1956. On an annual basis, 7 million passengers fly with Condor to around 75 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. Since 2013, the German airline Condor is part of the Thomas Cook Group Airlines, to which the Thomas Cook Airlines UK, Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia also belong. The fleet of the airlines in the Thomas Cook Group comprises 88 modern and environmentally friendly aircraft, of which 40 aircraft are in the Condor fleet: 12 Airbus A320s, 3 Airbus A321, 13 Boeing 757-300s and 12 Boeing 767-300s. The aircraft are maintained by the airline's own technical operations. In a representative survey of Focus and Focus Money, called "Mit gutem Gewissen," Condor was elected the most environmentally sustained airline and received the sustainability prize in 2014. Condor is co-initiator of the four-liter-campaign of the federal association of German aviation (BDL): German aviation consumption of kerosene is less than 4 liters per passenger on 100 kilometers.
