After a successful sales start for flights in summer 2018 to Turkish destinations, Germania sets 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 the 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 publicised: 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 & 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.
To complement the flight program, the Germania Holidays portal is working on introducing new holiday packages for Turkey. Contracts with renowned hotels at Germania’s destinations have been signed and new holiday packages will be made available by mid-April at the latest.
Germania flights to the new destinations are available from only 59 euros one way. Tickets can be purchased at flygermania.com or by phone via +49 30 610 818 000 (standard charges apply to calls from German landlines, mobile phone charges may vary) and at selected travel agents. All prices quoted include tax and fees, as well as the legally-required air travel surcharge.
