Cologne Bonn Airport welcomes Ellinair for Thessaloniki flights

Cologne Bonn Airport has announced its second new airline partner this year, with the German airport welcoming Ellinair.

Commencing Cologne Bonn’s second link to Thessaloniki, the Greek airline will be launching a three times weekly service from April 8th.

Utilising the airline’s A319s on the 1,675-kilometre sector, the new operation joins Cologne Bonn’s existing links to Greece, meaning the airport will offer flights to ten Greek airports during the peak season.

Joining Eurowings services on the Thessaloniki link, Ellinair’s arrival in the Greek market at Cologne Bonn gives the carrier an immediate 27 per cent share of weekly seats on the route.

As a result of the airline’s introduction on the city pair, capacity to Greece’s second largest city will increase by 37 per cent, giving Thessaloniki the most weekly frequencies and seats of all Greek services from Cologne Bonn.

Serving 38 cities in 11 countries, Ellinair will link Cologne Bonn to the airport’s sixth largest country market, with Greece following Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey and the UK.
