germanwings connects Stuttgart with Rijeka (Croatia)
- Following in the footsteps of hlx/TUIfly (March 2006 to October 2009) and airberlin (May 2010 to September 2011), Lufthansa’s in-house LCC germanwings has now started non-stop flights between Stuttgart (STR) and Rijeka (RJK) in Croatia. From 30 July until 6 September, the carrier will operate two weekly flights using an A319. germanwings started serving Rijeka for the first time earlier this year from Cologne/Bonn (27 March) and Berlin Schönefeld (20 June). Despite being the third largest city in Croatia (after Zagreb and Split), the city’s airport handled less than 100,000 passengers in both 2010 and 2011.
