SunExpress restarts Münster Osnabrück
SunExpress, a core operator between non-Istanbul Turkey and Europe, has restarted Münster Osnabrück.
Flight XQ251 took off from the German airport at 0009 on 3 August, touching down into Antalya at 0423.
The carrier had suspended Münster Osnabrück given coronavirus, and its relaunch is despite the on-going travel ban to Turkey.
SunExpress, which has served Münster Osnabrück for 30 years, now serves Antalya twice-weekly this month, rising – depending on the full lifting of the travel ban – to once-daily from September until the end of S20.
Pre-coronavirus, the carrier expected to operate a 19-weekly Antalya – Münster Osnabrück service.
Turkey is crucially important to Münster Osnabrück, both for tourism and VFR.
Six Turkish destinations are served from the German airport – Antalya, Adana, Bodrum, Izmir, Kayseri, and Zonguldak – across SunExpress and Corendon Airlines, with Turkey accounting for 23% of the airport’s passengers last year.
