Condor (DE, Frankfurt Int'l) is to end base operations at the German airport of Paderborn/Lippstadt later this month. German portal airliners.de states the leisure specialist has justified the move for economic reasons and intends to redeploy the newly freed up aircraft to sister carrier Thomas Cook Airlines UK (MT, Manchester Int'l) on other more economically attractive routes.

Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel) has reportedly stepped in to cover the loss in connectivity.

Currently, Condor connects the airfield with Antalya, Fuerteventura, Heraklion, Hurghada (as a charter operated by Avion Express (X9, Vilnius)), Kos Hippocrates, Las Palmas, Palma Son Sant Joan, Rhodes, and Tenerife Sur.
