Within just a few months, AOE implemented a completely new intranet portal for the airline Condor. Condor is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Thomas Cook AG, one of the world’s leading tour operators. Condor wanted to provide employees with an appealing central point of contact for news relevant to the company, internal memos, current statistics, frequently used forms, employee offers and much more. With the intranet project the airline was breaking new ground.


AOE’s job was to create an intranet for Condor, based on the same technology being used for the parent company, Thomas Cook. Although the two intranets needed to offer many of the same features, Condor had somewhat wider-ranging requirements than its parent company. A central need of the airline was for an existing portal, which crews used as a central information channel for essentials such as duty rosters and briefings, to be integrated with the intranet.


After detailed strategic and conceptual discussions with the client, AOE implemented the intranet with TYPO3, the Open Source Content Management System (CMS) that is also being used for www.condor.com. AOE developed an internal marketplace, where employees can post, administer and read classified ads. A special technical feature of the Condor intranet is the single sign-on to the separate “OPS” portal. After logging into the OPS portal (e.g. from the Internet), crews can access the intranet where they are automatically logged in as frontend users of the CMS. This allows them to post in forums or place items in the marketplace, for example. There is no longer any need for separate logins.

Business Benefits

  • Web CMS: Easy-to-use content management for more than 50 editors for the intranet, based on the Open Source CMS TYPO3
  • Portal features: Centralized management, low maintenance and easy access to internal information with single-sign-on to third-party systems


AOE succeeded in creating a visually appealing and lively intranet that meets the client’s need for technical sophistication as well as ease of use.
