- Germania launched two new services this week, both on 2 November. The airline linked Dortmund (DTM) and Fuerteventura (FUE) with a twice-weekly (Mondays and Saturdays), A319-operated service. In addition, it began a twice-weekly (Mondays and Thursdays), 737-700-operated route from Düsseldorf (DUS) to Tel Aviv (TLV). Germania had intended to operate to Eilat Ovda, but decided to switch the route between its announcement and the start of service. Neither city pair faces any direct competition.
