Germania launches new capital route from Stockholm Arlanda

Germania has launched a new nonstop flight connection from capital to capital: Germania Airline commences twice weekly flights, every Monday and Thursday, from Stockholm Arlanda Airport to Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport.

From 06 June 2016, passengers of the Berlin-based airline are now able to fly nonstop out of Stockholm Arlanda to the fashionable Eastern Mediterranean capital.

Karsten Balke, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Germania, says: “We are very pleased by the strong demand out of Stockholm and are proud to add a direct link between the two cities. Our flights to Beirut are aimed at both leisure and business travelers, as well as those visiting friends and relatives in Lebanon.”

“We are pleased to get this direct route and a better connectivity to Beirut as it is one of the larger cities underserved in the Swedish market. In the last years we have also seen a rapidly growing demand for Beirut as a destination. It is also very positive that Germania is increasing their Stockholm Arlanda Airport operation, as in Q1 2016 the international traffic increased by almost nine percent to and from Stockholm,” says Elizabeth Axtelius, Aviation Director at Swedavia.
