Summer 2018: Germania Expands its Flight Programme

Strengthening of bases in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Nuremberg and Zurich / Additional holiday flight offerings for tour operators / Focus on island tourism

Berlin, (lifePR) - The independent airline Germania is responding to current market changes and is modifying its flight programme accordingly for the summer season 2018. For travellers seeking to sidestep the ongoing changes within the German aviation industry, Germania is expanding its existing range of travel options, as well as its presence at a number of busy airports. The highlights of next year’s schedules, and the most frequent destinations for the airline with the green and white aircraft, include the Balearics, the Greek islands and the Canaries, followed by Turkey, Cyprus and Egypt.

"In the light of recent events, we have decided to expand our flight programme and operate additional flights next summer, which are already available for booking," commented Karsten Balke, Germania's CEO. "With its wide choice of warm-water and niche destinations, Germania is the ideal quality airline for all travellers and tour operators who are looking for a service they can rely on and a level of comfort that has become quite rare."

Germania is the only holiday airline where all passengers can enjoy complimentary snacks, drinks and magazines on board, and a free baggage allowance of 20kg.

The revised flight programme results in expanded route portfolios at key locations, such as Berlin. Due to increased demand from tour operators, Germania will not only operate flights from Berlin-Schönefeld, but also from Berlin-Tegel. In addition to flying to the Canaries and several Greek islands, in 2018 Germania will operate new services from the German capital to Palma de Mallorca.

Germania's aircraft will also be taking off more frequently from Dusseldorf, from where the number of flights to the Greek islands has increased to offer travellers a choice of seven destinations. The Dusseldorf schedule also offers flights to the Canary Islands. And for the first time, Germania is operating flights from Dusseldorf to two destinations in Portugal – Faro and the Azores.

In Nuremberg, the volume of Germania’s flights to Palma de Mallorca has been doubled, and the frequency of flights to numerous destinations that were announced earlier this year is being increased. In Zurich, already-planned services will receive another significant boost with the new destinations of Ibiza, Samos and the Canaries.

The moves illustrate Germania’s strengthening of its overall market position as a holiday airline. In summer 2018 its fleet will be taking off from nine German airports to the Spanish island of Mallorca. The summer base at Palma de Mallorca that only opened in May 2017 will be maintained and will be used not only during peak season, but also increasingly during low season, including the months of March and November.

Germania will be sending out further regional information about its detailed flight programme for the above-mentioned airports.
