Germania adds Athens to its network

Germania began its first ever route to Athens on 4 May, with a twice-weekly service from Bremen. The airline will add a service to the Greek capital city from Nuremberg later in the summer.

Alexandra Ringel, Senior Manager Traffic Development & Sales and Lara Münch, Manager Traffic Development & Sales, both from the Aviation Marketing Department at Hamburg Airport have been busy in the kitchen cooking up the route launch cake to send off Germania’s Almeria service on 5 May.

On hand to celebrate on the same day (5 May), and flying to the same Spanish destination (Almeria), but this time from Southern Germany, was Sonja Schmaderer, Manager Tourism Marketing and Traffic Development from Stuttgart Airport, along with Germania’s inaugural flight crew. A spectacular Spanish-themed cake was also baked for the occasion.

Along with other VIPs welcoming the start of Germania’s weekly service from Fuerteventura to Toulouse on 7 May were: Luis López Chapí, Fuerteventura Airport Director; Marcial Morales, President of Fuerteventura’s Cabildo; and Blas Acosta, Tourism Counsellor Fuerteventura.

  • Germania has launched eight new routes from six German and one Spanish airport over the last seven days. The average sector length of the new city pairs is 2,129 kilometres, with the shortest airport pair being the 1,616-kilometre operation from Stuttgart (STR) to Almeria (LEI) in Spain, while the longest is the 3,240-kilometre route from Düsseldorf (DUS) to La Palma (SPC). The average weekly frequency of the eight new routes is just 1.4. Only one of the eight airport pairs will be flown more than twice-weekly frequency, the three times weekly operation between Nuremberg (NUE) and Faro (FAO). Only two of the eight routes will see any direct competition for Germany’s 15th biggest airline (in terms of weekly seats). See how Athens Airport’s FTWA and Fuerteventura’s FTWA compare to others from around the world.
