Germania opens base and introduces new routes to and from Palma de Mallorca

With the opening of a new base at Son Sant Joan Airport, Germania launched its summer season in Palma de Mallorca on May 19.

Throughout the entire summer season daily flights between Palma de Mallorca and Friedrichshafen, Münster/Osnabrück, Dresden, Bremen and Nuremberg will be available. In addition, Erfurt-Weimar, Rostock-Laage, and Dortmund will be connected with Palma de Mallorca several times per week. Flights to and from Cuxhaven-Nordholz will also be offered in the autumn.

Complementing its routes to and from Germany, Germania has also established new flight connections between Mallorca and the European mainland. Flights are being launched to Maastricht in the Netherlands (as of 20/05), as well as to the French cities of Strasbourg (as of 22/05) and Montpellier (as of 23/05). Passengers can look forward to two weekly flights on each of these routes. The number of flights to Zurich in Switzerland, operated by Germania Flug AG, is also being increased to nine per week.

“Palma de Mallorca is Germania’s largest departure airport. With 73 flights per week, our aircraft take off and land here more frequently than at any other airport in our network,” says Claus Altenburg, Germania’s Director of Sales, responsible for the route development.

“If hoteliers and tour operators contribute to strengthening the low season on the island, we might extend our presence throughout the winter season.” To support the ongoing flight programme, Germania has created 30 new flight crew jobs in Palma.
