Airbus A310 - Condor
Condor (Condor Flugdienst) is a German holiday airline and since 2004 part of the Thomas Cook Group. Its main base is Frankfurt Airport but it also flies from other German airports. The airline was formed by the takeover of Condor-Luftreederei by Deutsche Flugdienst in 1961. Deutsche Flugdienst was founded in 1955 and began flying in March 1956. Rival Deutsche Flugdienst started a little later, in 1957. As name of the merged airline was chosen 'Condor Flugdienst'.
Condor could name itself a widebody operator in 1971, when it introduced the Boeing 747. It was the first leisure airline to have the Jumbo Jet in the fleet. Later it also operated the McDonnell Douglas DC-10, the Boeing 767 and the Airbus A300 and A310. Today the Boeing 767 is the only widebody type in Condor's fleet.
Between 1985 and 1994 Condor flew a total of seven Airbus A310 airliners: five A310-200s and two -300s. The aircraft on the picture, an A310-200, is taxiing at its home base Frankfurt Rhein/Main Airport.
