- Corendon Airlines has commenced flights between Düsseldorf (DUS) and Banjul (BJL). Launched 17 April, the carrier will offer a weekly (Thursdays) service on the 4,712-kilometre connection using its fleet of 737-800s. Referencing OAG Schedules Analyser data, no other airline currently serves the airport pair. Along with Düsseldorf, the airline has also added a route from Frankfurt (FRA) to the African city, a 4,675-kilometre link that was inaugurated the day before. It will be flown weekly (Wednesdays) using 737-800s. Finally, the carrier also added a new link from Hannover (HAJ), recent host of Routes Europe 2019, to Rhodes (RHO) this week. Inaugurated on 16 April, the carrier will serve the 2,290-kilometre link weekly (Wednesdays), again like its Banjul routes, using 737-800s. Unlike its links to Banjul, the airline will face direct competition on the 2,290-kilometre route between Germany and Rhodes, with Condor (twice-weekly) and TUIfly (weekly) presently serving the airport pair.
