Condor Flugdienst GmbH (meaning Condor Flight Service), is a German leisure and holiday airline. Originally a subsidiary of German flag carrier Lufthansa, it was acquired by the Thomas Cook Group in the early 2000s and remained a subsidiary until the group collapsed in September 2019. However, the operations of Condor and Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia are unaffected for the time being.
In 2002, Thomas Cook Group acquired Condor and repainted all Condor aircraft in the Thomas Cook standard livery with the words Powered by Condor towards the rear of the aircraft.
The Condor name was reintroduced in full in 2004. Aircraft liveries now bore the Condor name. However, the Thomas Cook logo remained on the tail.
Thomas Cook Group introduced its ‘Sunny Heart’ logo and brand identity in October 2013. Accordingly, Condor changed its logo colour from blue to chocolate-brown. Aircraft were now painted in the new Sunny Heart livery. Following Thomas Cook Group's collapse in 2019, Condor dropped the Thomas Cook identity.
In January 2020, LOT Polish Airlines announced that they were planning to acquire the airline. However, the deal fell through in April of that year.
