- Germania introduced two new routes to its network last week, launching flights between Düsseldorf (DUS) and Karpathos (AOK) on 14 June, and from Berlin Tegel (TXL) to Yerevan (EVN) on 16 June. Both flights will be operated weekly by the carrier’s A319 fleet. The 2,395-kilometre Düsseldorf-Karpathos sector will be flown on Thursdays, while the 2,725-kilometre Berlin Tegel-Yerevan route will operate on Saturdays. Neither airport pair faces any direct competition. Speaking about the airline’s new Greek connection from Düsseldorf, Daniela Pilz, Director Sales/Tour Operator at Germania said: “Greece is becoming increasingly popular with holidaymakers. We’re also experiencing very high demand for flights to Greece from tour operators. We’ve taken advantage of this positive trend to almost double our seat capacity to Greece this summer compared to last year.” Germania already operates to three other Greek destinations from Düsseldorf and will add another on 26 June when it begins services to Mytilene. Speaking about the new Tegel-Yerevan route, Florian Stahl Senior Manager Route Development at Germania said: “With the connection from Berlin to Yerevan, we have found another interesting destination that promises a high level of demand. In offering this route, we are focusing both on the tourist potential and the interests of travellers wishing to visit family and friends.” Thomas Kohr, Head of Aviation Marketing, Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg, added: “The number of destinations that are offered by Germania from Tegel and Schönefeld is constantly increasing. Thanks to the Berlin airline’s involvement, this not only includes run-of-the-mill tourist destinations, but also a growing number of unusual destinations. This enriches the flight schedule greatly.”
