The military attack by the Russian Federation against Ukraine also has an impact on the 2022 summer flight schedule from Nuremberg. The Ukraine routes are currently on hold or announced new additions have been postponed indefinitely.
“The most fundamental task of air transport is to connect people with each other. Due to the acts of war, the Ukraine connections from Nuremberg are unfortunately no longer possible. With a donation of 10.000 euros to the Charkiw-Nürnberg partnership association as an immediate measure, we are helping to alleviate the unimaginable suffering of the people affected by the war in Ukraine,” says Managing Director Michael Hupe.
Wizz Air has been flying to Kiev-Schulany Airport since August 2017, and Ryanair has been flying to Kyiv-Borispil Airport since winter 2019/20. Due to the strong demand, Lviv should actually be added in the summer of 2022. These plans fell victim to the war. Against the background of the unfortunately necessary flight plan adjustments, Ryanair has changed the summer flight plan at short notice and even expanded it: Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is adding two flights a week. In addition - in addition to the existing offer of Corendon Airlines - the Italian Lamezia Terme, also twice a week, as well as once a week Ponta Delgada on the Portuguese island of São Miguel in the Azores.
The Irish airline is thus offering 29 non-stop destinations from Nuremberg this summer with up to 89 weekly departures. For example, Dublin, Valencia and Venice will be served for the first time. Popular flight destinations such as Ibiza, Kraków and Naples are returning to the Nuremberg summer flight schedule, which includes a total of around 70 destinations.
