Condor to launch Pristina flights

NEWS FLASH


Germany’s Condor will commence daily flights between Dusseldorf and Pristina at the start of the 2023 summer season on March 26. The service is being operated on behalf of the Air Prishtina tour operator with tickets available for purchase through the agency’s website. Flights will be maintained with an Airbus A320 aircraft. Services to the German city are also operated by Eurowings, as well as Trade Air for other tour operators. Last year, Dusseldorf was Pristina’s third busiest route, accounting for 8% of all passengers.

    I don't understand why AirPrishtina keeps chartering planes, instead of using their own airline, Chair.

      It's cheaper for them, they pretty much don't have any concrete worries

      A Swiss airline can't fly from Germany to a third country.

      By the way, does anyone know how "chair" is supposed to be pronounced? Is it "čair", is it "se aš er", "šer", "hajr" something else? Has anyone here flown it, thus hearing their announcements?

      i think they promoted it first with a chair(seat) marketing. but from the difference in colors it should be CH (for Confœderatio Helvetica) and air.

      Chair is named of chair in Skopje! One of their chefs is from Chair!

    10. The Anon @ 11:21 is correct.

      It's pronounced in the same way that you pronounce the word 'chair' that you seat on.

      It symbolises the seat that you book on the airplane.

      Also, CH is the country code for Switzerland, so Swiss. Air is Air, obviously.

      It has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with Chair neighbourhood of Shkup/Skopje. Neither Albanians nor Macedonians use the "Ch" in Cair.

    Pristina needs to reinstate flights to Paris, JFK. Amsterdam and Thessaloniki would also be very reasonable in my opinion.

    There is a typo in the story. Condor is spelled as Condon.

    Otherwise, just a note to say that from my previous experience Air Prishtina is a fantastic agency/airline that puts the customer experience with other airlines to shame.

    A while ago I had to cancel my flights with them and I did it all online and they refunded 95% of the fare value to my account, instantly. Considering that 5% of the value of the fare is credited to your account for your loyalty means that you're essentially able to change your flights free of charge. No need to submit any long forms or any other paperwork.

    When my credit with them expired since I was unable to travel due to the pandemic, I emailed them and they phoned me back the same day. They reinstated the full amount as a gesture of good will and reminded me that credit has an expiry date.

    What the majority of the people on this site do not get is that the market in Kosovo is such that people like to change flights. Not only that, they like to change flights with very little notice. In fact, by and large, people also purchase tickets for "this Friday" or whatever day it may be, so less than a week in advance (unless you need the booking for a visa application). Agencies cater for such passengers and so we seem to have:
    (i) Legacy airlines, such as Turkish, Austrian, and Swiss, serving the thinner markets that can't support direct routes;
    (ii) No frills airlines, such as easyJet, Wizz Air and Pegasus, serving passengers that are looking for value; and
    (iii) Independent travel agencies, such as Air Prishtina, Eurokoha, and Reiseburo Prishtina, serving passengers that don't mind paying €10 extra per ticket to speak to a person who books their flights, also the option to pay in cash is relevant here, and are prepared to pay a premium once or twice a year to have the option of making changes to their flights (particularly the return leg).
