Germania flight lands in Sharm El Sheikh

Posted 20 October 2017 · Add Comment

Germania flight took off from Berlin-Schönefeld headed for Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt with 201 passengers on board. With a second aircraft now based at Schönefeld, Germania is flying this route, among others, once a week during the winter season, thereby reviving a service between the German capital and the Red Sea beach resort that has not been available for four and a half years.


Additional new features in Germania's winter flight schedule from SXF include Hurghada, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. The service to Hurghada is being increased from once a week to three times per week. Travellers can now also escape the cold winter temperatures by flying to the Canary Islands Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. As in the last winter season, there will also be flights to Tenerife and Paphos in Cyprus. Among the scheduled routes to the Middle East, Germania will continue operating several weekly flights to Teheran and Beirut this winter, thereby establishing itself as a firm partner for intercultural flights.

The airline with the green and white livery is committed to a policy for growth at this base, which also covers Berlin-Tegel airport. From 1 November 2017 Germania will be basing an aircraft there, offering flights to the Canary islands of Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife, in conjunction with tour operators. The plan is to further increase the fleet in May 2018, when Germania will be operating two additional aircraft from Berlin-Tegel.

"Germania will achieve 400% growth in Berlin," commented Clauspeter Schwarz, Germania's Chief Operating Officer, on Friday, when the first of the new flights took off. "This is our response to market changes and a greater presence in the capital."

"We are very pleased with the increased commitment of Germania to Berlin," remarked Prof. Dr.-Ing. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH. "The wider range of flight offerings, the development of its bases at our two locations, Schönefeld and Tegel, as well as the maintenance operations at SXF make the airline a key partner for us."
