The airline is not alone with this measure: most airlines have already massively reduced their operations or even completely stopped them. Which airlines still fly some passengers:
Lufthansa has created a special flight schedule due to the corona pandemic. Numerous connections within Europe, as well as from and to America, Asia and Africa are maintained. There are still isolated connections within Germany.
You can see which flights go where and when on this list.
Condor has a new flight plan that is valid from March 23 to April 30 and is severely restricted. However, some destinations are still being flown to – but only from and to Frankfurt. The remaining connections are: Palma de Mallorca on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, Gran Canaria on Sundays, Tenerife on Mondays and Fridays and Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) on Saturdays.
There is also a flight from Seattle to Frankfurt on Mondays and Thursdays.
Alaska Airlines flies to Seattle from 30 cities within the United States. The airline is cooperating with Condor to bring both Europeans and Americans back home in Europe. The best thing to do on the Alaska Airlines website is to find out which routes are available.
