After a successful sales start for flights in summer 2018 to Turkish destinations, Germania has set up additional services to the Turkish Riviera. Additionally, more flights for next winter have been added to the Antalya schedule. From eight German airports (Bremen, Dresden, Erfurt-Weimar, Münster/Osnabrück, Nuremberg, Rostock-Laage, Berlin-Schönefeld, and Friedrichshafen), the airline with the distinctive green-and-white livery will continue to fly to the popular destination during winter season. Most of the connections will be operated year-round.
Germania heads for 15 Turkish airports in total. Compared to last year, the airline’s holiday flights will increase by 57 percent in volume. This includes new connections that have already been announced: from Nuremberg and Berlin-Schönefeld to Antalya, from Münster/Osnabrück to Istanbul and from Dusseldorf to Kütahya/Zafer.
From Germany and Switzerland, Germania will offer up to 60 weekly flights to Turkey. The flight program does not only include holiday destinations, but also connections associated with the VFR (Visiting Friends and Relatives) travel sector.
Already in December 2017, Germania announced several new routes from Berlin. Multiple weekly connections are offered to Antalya and Bodrum as well as to Dalaman, Samsun, Kayseri, and Gaziantep.
The development benefits from the fact that Germania did not withdraw from the Turkish market in the last two years. During a meeting between Germania’s management and Turkey’s tourism minister Numan Kurtulmuş at ITB trade fair in Berlin last week, the independent airline received additional positive feedback on building strong touristic relations.
