Two chartered flights with nearly 500 passengers from Frankfurt arrived at the Kochi international airport on Monday. The Condor Air flights arrived here as part of the annual air-to-sea-to-air cruise programme. The programme is being hosted by AIDA Cruises, a British-American-owned German cruise company based in Rostock, Germany.
The company has already conducted four such air-sea combined tours to Kochi in the past four years. A total of 271 passengers had earlier arrived in the city via Emirates Air and Qatar Airways flights for the programme. After the arrival of the Condor Air flights, all the passengers were transferred to AIDA AURA, the luxury cruise ship docked in Kochi waters. ENS
