Big news for people in south-central Texas—San Antonio International is getting its first-ever nonstop trans-Atlantic flight.
Budget German carrier Condor Airlines will fly nonstop, seasonal service from San Antonio to Frankfurt, Germany starting on May 17, 2024. Condor will fly the service on an Airbus A330-900neo aircraft that features 310 total seats with 30 in Business Class, 64 in Premium Economy, and 216 in Economy.
From Frankfurt, travelers will be able to connect to 300 destinations in more than 90 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India.
San Antonio currently offers international flights to Mexican destinations including Cancun, Guadalajara, Leon, Mexico City, and Monterrey. The Frankfurt service will be its first-ever nonstop to Europe.
Jesus Saenz, Director of Airports, San Antonio Airport System, said Condor is a welcome addition for SAT, and more is planned in the future.
"This is just the beginning of so much more to come at SAT," Saenz said. "We fully believe San Antonio will utilize this service to Europe and take advantage of Condor's extremely competitive airfares. Once that happens, we anticipate Condor will expand their services even further."
