Independent carrier Germania has opened its new base in Nuremberg. The airline is permanently stationing an Airbus A319 at the airport, its thirteenth base, offering flights to Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Tenerife and Madeira during the 2016/17 winter season.
It will be joined by a Boeing 737 ahead of the summer season, enabling the carrier to expand its offering with flights to Palma, Faro, Ibiza, Reykjavik/Keflavik, Samos, Rhodes, Paphos and Dalaman. In the second half of the year, Germania will begin flights between Nuremberg and Tel Aviv.
Elsewhere in Germany, the carrier is adding an Airbus A321 to its fleet at Münster Osnabrück and a 737 at Erfurt-Weimar.
“We are consolidating our network and are creating more opportunities to interchange our aircraft,” explained Karsten Balke, Germania’s CEO. “For more than three decades, Germania has been a partner of decentralised airports. We are well positioned as a quality airline within the local competitive environment which we will continue to expand and strengthen.”
