LOT Polish buys Condor

Former Thomas Cook owned German leisure carrier Condor has been purchased by LOT Polish Airlines.

The Condor brand will be retained along with its management and staff.

LOT has already said its first aim will be to replace the 767 fleet with newer aircraft – probably 787’s over the coming years.

Plans to replace the 757’s have not yet been discussed.

Condor was able to survive with German state and federal government support until a buyer was found, after the British owned carrier collapsed in 2019.
