Germanwings adds 13 routes

Continuing to build on its network, Germanwings has announced it will add a total of 13 new routes in summer 2007.  The low-cost airline, already the market leader at Cologne/Bonn airport, is focusing on increasing its network footprint across Southern and Eastern Europe from its four bases across Germany.

From its base at Cologne/Bonn Germanwings will add the following eight destinations from 25th March 2007: Burgas (Bulgaria); Sarajevo; Sofia; Zadar (Croatia); Varna (Bulgaria); Alghero (Sardinia); Kavala (Macedonia); and Bucharest.  The existing service to Mallorca will also increase in frequency to 15 times per week.

From Hamburg there will be a new route to Mallorca four times per week.  This takes the number of destinations offered from the city to 15, which includes the recently announced summer routes to Corfu and Split.

At Stuttgart, Germanwings will be operating a new route to Corsica taking the total number of destinations to 32, and will also increase the frequency of its flights to Mallorca.

Summer services from Berlin will be boosted by 30 per cent with new routes to Burgas; Varna; and Balaton (Hungary).  A total of 17 routes will then be served from Berlin Schoenefeld airport, including another recently announced new route to the Greek Island of Mykonos.


Flights have now been made available for booking with tickets costing as little as 13 pounds GBP (including taxes and fees) each way.
