Germania increases its capacity and offers new destinations in Summer 2018

Germania will base three aircraft at Nuremberg for summer 2018 and is increasing its seating capacity by operating an Airbus A321 over the summer. Germania is also increasing the number of its weekly departures from 30 to 45, thereby strengthening its position at Albrecht Dürer Airport.

“We have already released our basic flight schedule for summer 2018, which reflects our further investment at our Nuremberg base. Experience gained from recent seasons has led us to make initial adjustments to our programme and we look forward to its implementation,” commented Karsten Balke, CEO of Germania. The airline started to operate flights from Nuremberg in the 2016/17 winter season. By the end of April this year around 40,000 passengers had been welcomed on board at the airport, and since then bookings have been rising steadily.

According to the current schedule, the Airbus A321, with 215 seats, will be flying to Palma de Mallorca daily. Twice a week the aircraft will also be used on the new routes to Heraklion/Crete and Kos, as well as on established routes to Tenerife and Gran Canaria. New additions to the programme include four weekly flights to Antalya in Turkey.

Overall the current routes are being maintained, with minor changes in frequency or flight times. Flights to Athens have been moved to Monday and Friday during the week. Non-stop flights from Nuremberg to Tel Aviv will also be available for the first time in summer 2018, as well as flights to Hurghada.
