The last Condor flights direct flight to Frankfurt are now listed from Bangkok. As I have mentioned before they are for German repatriation but are open to Brits and EU citizens. Just book them on the Condor airway site.

 

€99 one way including hand luggage, suitcase, meals and basic entertainment..

 

You need to arrange your own scheduled flight to the UK from there. There are about 5-6 flight per day from Frankfurt to the UK.

 

The Phuket direct flights are now closed. The last Bangkok direct flight is on 8 April.

 

After this you are on your own.

Just watched this flight land around 9:30 just in front of the cancelled KL875 from Amsterdam. 20 minutes later the KLM flight still listed as cancelled. My brother is booked on the return KL 876 departing 22:30.

This is not the final prize. Just some kind of "deposit".

Germans have to sign a formal obligation to pay the full price when back.

No idea how other nationals (if seats available) would be handled.

We should shame and name all the airlines overcharging stranded tourists.

oh come on! if you want to leave you can either; if you have one, reschedule your existing ticket, or buy a flight and leave, there have always been and continue to be flights available to the uk for around 400GBP - 600GBP

 

it's so boring listening to people whinge rather than be an adult, take responsibility and actually doing something to solve their problemIMG_3244.JPG.7771313a67dd9b591c092f83969cd425.JPG

If you want to check further you can call the German Embassy in Thailand. (+66) 2 287 90 00 who can clarify this for you.

 

This is their current feedback

 

These are repatriation flight so are being run at cost and are heavily subsidized by the German government. There are no local taxes or landing costs applied by the airport or to fuels or other services where taxes may otherwise have been applied.

 

They are only one way from the origination airport to Frankfurt. They are not commercial flights. The Germans are offering Brits and EU citizen the chance to fill the extra seats paying the same costs as the Germans.

 

Germans book via a different site linked to their embassy and they are allocated seat. If you are German please check here.  rueckholprogramm.de

 

If there are seats available after the Germans seats are allocated they are offered on the Condor website for EU citizens. They are released in groups of 9 seats. Flights will open more groups of seats as the day progresses and it is apparent how many seats will be available on the flight.

 

Many of the planes have a large number of seats available for EU citizens as these repatriation flights have been running daily from both Phuket and Bangkok for over 2 weeks. One flight per day from each location. Phuket flights are now stopped and Bangkok flights currently run till 9 April. 

 

If the oil price rises or taxes are applied that are currently not being applied then you may have to cover the difference. So far none of the EU travelers who have taken these flights have been asked to pay extra.

 

The website shows one flight on 9 April with seats available for EU citizens. Check the site regularly to see if other flights become available.
