Marking the three new routes being operated by ASL Airlines into Hamburg – from Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseille – which have all started this month were: Lara Münch, Manager Traffic Development & Sales, Hamburg Airport; the crew of the first flight; and Jörgen Kearsley, GM Aviation Marketing, Hamburg Airport.
- ASL Airlines is launching two new routes between Hamburg (HAM) and France, following the introduction of its services from Bordeaux on 5 May. The airline celebrated on 13 May the maiden flights on its new services to the major French cities of Marseille (MRS) and Lyon (LYS), with services to both operating on Mondays and Fridays. The routes will be operated with 147-seat 737-300s. “Thanks to the commitment of ASL Airlines, we can offer our passengers even more variety in the route network,” says Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport. “Bordeaux, Lyon and Marseilles are completely new destinations that were previously not on offer in our timetable. The routes are attractive for both business travellers and holidaymakers, and the take-up amongst our passengers is certain to be strong.” Neither route faces any direct competition.
